try changing the title of your thread so more people can answer your question.

maybe it is a grub related problem . try booting off the live cd of ubuntu whatever version you have and type:

Quote:
sudo apt-get install grub
then follow THIS tutorial


also it might be something related to xorg , in wich i'm not an expert by no means and maybe another linuxer around here could help on this one [ maybe getting an older version ov i dont know what xorg or some driver ]

ARE YOU USING NVIDIA graphic card ? does grub actually show up ? i mean .. try and press shift and select an older version of kernel from there or the repairmode or whatever it is

try giving us more details about the problem

What did you update it from... A CD, the Web? Can you get the use of another system to download the 10.10 Live CD .iso? If so, create a Live CD and boot from it. If the system then works OK, try re-installing from the Live CD.
I assume that it's the only OS on your system as you haven't mentioned dual booting.

Play Bonny!

Ubuntu 10.10 sometimes doesn't shutdown properly, especially from powerbutton icon. I explain what I did here.

Hi,

Welcome to LQ!

In order for someone to provide aid or diagnosis of your problems you need to provide detailed information;
Quote:
[8. something blah blah blah and codes
Killed
really doesn't provide helpful information. The output would indicate potential means/details to solving the issue.

I suggest that you read How to Ask Questions the Smart Way for understanding. This way you can provide information/details that may aid in diagnosis of your problem.

HTH!

BTW, I edited the title to provide information that will aid others to understand your needs
