I accepted the upgrade from Ubuntu 10.10 to 11.04 (CN: natty narwhal), and now when I reboot, it hangs right before the splash screen displays. The upper 40% of the screen is distorted, and I see no text or any indication of boot progress. I tried to CTRL-ALT-F1, but I can't reach a command line. I'm still a *nix newb, so I'm not sure how to recover from this problem even if I did reach the CLI. I did create a backup image of my HD before I installed 11.04, and I found a bash script which I could run to recover the previous image if I could reach the command line. Any ideas?
I would prefer to retain the 11.04 upgrade if possible.
BTW, I've been having an issue with my NVIDIA proprietary driver after I installed some updates a while back. I'm not sure if this is related to my current problem, but sometimes when I ran updates, I was forced to uninstall, then reinstall this NVIDIA driver.....
Computers have lots of memory but no imagination.......or do they?
