Ubuntu 12.04 freezing at login


I have Ubuntu 12.04 dual booted on a Acer Aspire 5250, and sometimes when I start up the laptop and choose ubuntu it will load until the login screen and completely freeze. This doesn't happen every time I start up the laptop, this is only the second time it has happened. When it happened before it just started working after a while, I have no idea what is causing it or how I fixed it before. Can anyone help me out ?

Post your hardware specifications - processor, RAM, graphics card or graphics memory.

Have you installed the graphics driver for you graphics card?
I had freezing problems with my Ubuntu and found that the system would freeze
because I had not installed driver for my graphics card.

The problem goes away when I'm connected to the internet with an ethernet cable, which makes me think it's something to do with my wireless card or drivers. I have an Atheros AR5B125 wireless network adapter. I've been googling my problem forever and can't find a solution.
