Unhappy Ubuntu is running in low graphics mode


I was updating my systems after downloading files , sys was going to install those but my power failed , since my lap battery is very weak it stopped installing those
When i open the system after having enough power i got this strange error
Ubuntu will show the progress bar of loading but this error box pops up cant do anything

Err:
Ubuntu is running in low graphics mode

The following error was encountered , You my need to update your configuration to solve this
(EE) GARTInint :Unable to open /dev/agpart (No file or directory )
(EE) [drm] drmOpen failed
(EE) intel (0):[dri] DRIScreenInit failed . Disabling DRI
(EE) intel (0): Failed to allocate framebuffer . Is your Video RAM set too low?
(EE) intel (0) : Couldnt allocate video memory

im not saying this is for sure your problem, so dont panic. ok? i seem to remember (when i was in middleschool, i think) we had a similar problem with a power surge and it screwed up our computer. we had to replace it.

anyway, what you might try is to open up your case, assuming you arent on a laptop, or one of those sealed up compaq things, anyway and test your connections with things like video/graphics. it may also be that the surge managed to reset your display driver, this is unlikely but stranger things have happened. there is a reason they tell you not to turn stuff off while saving/updating

i might also be totally wrong. ive never really seen anything like this, beyond the thing i mentioned above, but that was a *huge* thing. i mean it melted the surge protector, and burned the carpet. im not kidding

Try rebooting into Recovery mode, and select xfix, then restart.

I had the same thing happen to me so I checked the monitor cable and found it was loose (Do this with ALL power off) after reconnecting the cable all was ok.
