Gnome Power manager not installed properly....boot impossible...keyboard unresponsive
I updated 3 weeks ago on my laptop -Ubuntu op sys from 9.x to 10.04 after I received a notice that it is available. It was entirely from this prompt. I didn't do anything manually.
Now I receive the message a number of other users have:
"The configuration defaults for Gnome Power Manager have not been installed correctly. Please contact your computer administrator."
I have tried ESC and booting to one of the 7 or 8 options. Not successful. If I allow it to boot till it stops I have a non-responsive keyboard, with the above message. I have tried everything that I see on these message boards and nothing works. I cannot get a boot disk to load since it seems to not recognize the CD drive.
Any help would be 'muchly' appreciated.
