Failed internet upgrade from 11. 04 to 11. 10

Hi everyone,
I most recently tried an upgrade from Ubuntu 11. 04 to 11. 10 and it turns out to be a total mess.
I left my laptop upgrading in a similar manner that i did when i moved from 10. 10 to 11. 04. Unfortunately, this time round my computer has a black screen upon starting it
Any help on what i may do to revive it without loss of data, is much appreciated
