Question intrepid to jaunty upgrade not working?

I just upgraded from jaunty to intrepid. The upgrade tool went through everything without a hitch and when it finished it told me to restart my computer. When I did, ubuntu began to boot, got past the initial loading splash screen, but immediately after, before the login splash, the screen freezes with some strange graphics glitch and refuses to work from there. How can I fix this to any workable state, upgraded or not?

You mean you upgraded from Jaunty to Karmic. Intrepid was older version. I have a lot of issues with Karmic and would not suggest anyone already on Jaunty to go on for Karmic. Its a mistake unless you know and are ready to to clean install Jaunty. It definitely is an issue with your graphics card.
