Hi Tasco5, Welcome to LQ. Have you tried to start X?

Code:
$ startx
What exactly were you doing? Are there any error messages?

Good luck. ;-)

hi tos

does your mother board have a video out and you have a second video card installed?
This happened to me, I had made a change, and disabled the video card in the process.
Ubuntu would boot then the screen would go black and nothing would happen.

I had to take out the new video card and boot with the on board video output.
re-enable the in the Nvidea drivers before the new video card would work.

this sounds simular to what i did. If you have a second video card you should try
removing it and starting with the on board video.

Hope this helps

Vanessa

You may have removed more than just the drivers. What does the log file say about your packages?

Code:
$cat /var/log/dpkg.log
Good luck. ;-)
