can you boot into recovery mode on any of your kernels?

if you can get to a command line: sudo apt-get -f install

also check your xorg.conf settings

Looks like missing digit on kernel
kernel 2.6.3-31-generic
highlighted in red should be 2 digits


should read something like
kernel 2.6.32-31-generic
You may need to use Ubuntu-cd to boot & edit grub

Go into 2.6.32-31 Generic Recovery Mode. Once that has started go to FailsafeX then Low Graphics. If the problem is what I think it is you will now start ok.

If it starts ok I want you to follow the procedure in this article (Working around bugs in the new kernel video architecture.

If you could post the output of
Code:
lspci
it would help alot as we could probably be able to find out the exact code to put in the kernel line. Mine is "i915.modeset=1" but unless you have the same intel family it may not be the same as mine.

Hope this helps, let us know how you go.

@k3lt01
doesn't it look like the kernel entry as far as listing(possibly grub) has been altered?

@EDDY1. I think although, I may be wrong, the OP has just made a mistake while typing the kernel listing up. If it has been altered he will still need to go in and fix GRUB in Recovery mode anyway but I have been through this (I was the 1st person to list the bug in Launchpad when it originally occurred) and I have a gut feeling it's the same thing.
