Today in the morning my Linux system was perfectly stable. I was using

I committed the error to accept. And now I am stuck with an unusable

That is the reason I got away from Windows and embraced Linux.
So, please, help me to get out of this situation.
I need my machine quite urgently.
Others have chastised you (some correctly) for your post. Hopefully byYou are right. At some point I upgraded to 10.10. Then, I received the
now you've taken a deep breath & can get down to offering details so
that this lists can offer assistance.
1. Did you really have 10.04 installed or perhaps at some time upgraded
to 10.10? It's not all that important at this point, but something that
you should answer.
invitation for upgrading to Natty.
2. You say that you have "no access to the graphic mode"; provide some
details about what happens *and* information regarding your nVidia
graphics card. (Note: Ubuntu depends upon nVidia to provide their
proprietary linux drivers. For an example on those of use still waiting
for older drivers see:
So the issue is with nVidia - not Ubuntu).
My graphics card is :
Asus en9400gt silent /htp/512m
When I boot the machine I obtain the following messages :
Boot from (hd0,0) ext3
* check syslog for diagnostics [fail]
* modprobe vboxdrv failed. Please use 'dmesg' to find out why
Ubuntu 11.04 monad tty
Then I log with my usual user and password. I have access to the file
system but I am stuck in text mode.
Then I login as root.
I do startx and I obtain the following message :
FATAL : Module nvidia not dound
(EE) NVIDIA : Failed to load the NVIDIA kernel module. Please check your
kernel system's log for additional error messages.
Failed to load module 'nvidia' (module-specific error,0)
No drivers available.
Fatal server error :

Please also check the log file at '/var/log/Xorg.0.log' for additional
xinit : giving up
xinit : unable to connect to X server : Connection refused
xinit : server error
I have checked the Xorg.0.log, but it gives the same information.
3. Be cooperative & provide as much detail as you possibly can. Keep inI have followed your advice.
mind that the subscribers & posters to this list are not
"Canonical/Ubuntu Official" and are users just like you. We try to take
our time to help other users. Nobody here is paid to help, so being
polite, providing details, and actually *asking* for help generally works.
Suggestions without added details:
a. From the grub menu start in recovery mode & select the dpkg option.
Let it clean/update as necessary. Once finished, continue to login &
enter your normal username/password at the terminal prompt. Then:
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install -f
$ sudo dpkg --configure -a
And when that's finished:
$ sudo reboot
Reboot the system and see if you get a gdm (Gnome Display Manager) login
screen. If so login and tell us whe happens. If not tell us what happens.
In the Grub menu, I have chosen the recovery mode and the dpkg option.
Then, I have logged in as root.
Then, I have done :
apt-get install -f
dpkg --configure -a
I have rebooted. But nothing changes I am still in same situation as
I have also tried uninstalling Unity4 and installing gnome. However, I
still get the same problem.
Do you think I have to change my graphic card in order to be able to use
Thanks for your help.
