Problem with login screen in Linux Mint


Hello!

I have a problem with Linux Mint Cinnamon.Yesterday I tried to install some c++ packages for The Witcher 2 and then I realised I have updates.I installed them but I think I installed some level 5 ones.All worked fine until next day when I turned on the PC and instead of the login screen I had the monitor turned off.The CTRL+ALT+F1 worked fine.I've tried to resolve the error and I followed some other forums.I installed ubuntu-desktop, lightdm, xinit and fluxbox.
Before that I tried to run startx but I've got the error
Code:
The XKEYBOARD keymap compiler (xkbcomp) reports:
> Warning:    Compat map for group 2 redefined
              Using new definition
> Warning:    Compat map for group 3 redefined
              Using new definition
> Warning:    Compat map for group 4 redefined
              Using new definition
Errors from xkbcomps are not fatal to the X server
(it turned off too).After this and the installation I commented the 3 lines
Code:
     group 2 = AltGr;                                                         
     group 3 = AltGr;
     group 4 = AltGr;
in /usr/share/X11/xkb/compat/basic
and I've got a fatal error then I removed the comments and I've got the same fatal error.Then I realised that I can't enter the bios to reinstall the OS and I tried the recovery mod.I tried to verify the packages but I think it froze and tried to continue from the recovery mod to the normal desktop and it worked but I've got cinnamon in fallback mod.Then I tried to run startx again from a CLI and I've got the first error with the keymap.

I have Linux Mint 17.1 Cinnamon
