Blank screen after Ubuntu loads
I have Ubuntu 9.04 installed with Gnome interface and everthing has been working fine for some time now.
The other day though day thoough I was trying to bring up the Pidgin (messenger) dialog box. Note the Pigdin status and the shutdown button share the same icon on the menu bar on mine.
I pulled down a menu from it's status icon on the gnome menu bar. It must have been something like guest. Suddenly the whole screen goes blank.
I reboot thinking it will solve the problem but no. Ubuntu starts it's loading logo but after that blank no login. Turns out login screen is there but it shows nothing on the screen. (I tried to login anyway and I get the music like it's just loaded - Nothing on screen though)
Anyone know how I get get out of this blank screen mode? Is there a safe mode or previous settings I can do?
