System freezes at purple login screen after update from 10.04 ubuntu


I have a Dell Inspiron E1505 with a Broadcom 4311X network card.

The problem is after the upgrade, the system hangs at the login screen. The mouse cursor just freezes and there is no response for any key press except the switch off key.

I tried to use the recovery mode and moving to the older working kernel, but the same problem persists.

Please help if anybody has faced a similiar issue.
