Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Thanks guys, i managed to solved it with Ctrl-Alt-F1 mode, then Ctrl-Alt-Backspace.
Obviously it was memory issue here.
Can you guys please help me to diagnose and do some healing here, i am sure later it will happen again.
gab@gab-Inspiron-700m:~$ cat /etc/fstab
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# Use 'blkid -o value -s UUID' to print the universally unique identifier
# for a device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name
# devices that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
proc /proc proc nodev,noexec,nosuid 0 0
# / was on /dev/sda11 during installation
UUID=daa5a1bf-ac55-44ca-9e69-815717925690 / ext4 errors=remount-ro 0 1
# swap was on /dev/sda12 during installation
UUID=caa40260-8d73-4e3f-8e62-c7365564899a none swap sw 0 0
It does look like that. It can't find the swap device that is configured in fstab. fdisk -l shows that it is /dev/sda7. Chek if it's UUID is same one as in fstab. You can try using device name in fstab directly.
