Ubuntu 10.10 has crashed the graphics on my Asus Eee 1001HA
I'm a complete Linux noob. A friend installed Ubuntu 10.04 on my Asus Eee PC 1001HA a little while back and today it suggested I upgrade to v10.10.
I installed it and now when it boots, nothing appears on the screen. I'm guessing it's a problem with the graphics drivers. I looked at trying to roll back the kernel, but when I tried the solutions in the FAQ, my netbook froze (though I could have done something wrong...). Is there any way to fix the problem without reinstalling 10.04? - I don't want to lose the data on the primary partition! If not, how do I retrieve the data off the partition before reinstalling?
