This is what I found:

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...hority-718478/

It' from an earlier system though. It should work for you.

As far as the sound, did you get an update recently?
Check gnome-applets in synaptic
Check alsa-base and utils

Fail safe window is at login window at the bottom. It says ubuntu desktop, there's an arrow next to it, press and select failsafe, login.

Terminal is under Applcations, Accessories, Terminal
Open terminal put in command
$ sudo chmod 755 /home/username
