I have a HD Intel graphics card in my laptop. It was working fine the first few days with the new version Edubuntu.

Now when you start, just before it goes to the part asking for the login password
I think the OP means lightdm it sends me to a low graphics mode.

Things I've tried:

  • I tried Ctl+Alt+F1.
  • Updated and installed fglrx from the terminal.

All my work is all stored there. Please, if anyone knows how to fix this, tell me.

Ah, I did not know about that, thanks. My answer still is relevant though, and could solve his problem. – apple16 May 29 '12 at 20:27
