I just installed Ubuntu 12.04 on my laptop but when I boot it up I get the GNOME menu and then when I pick the first option, I get "Ubuntu 11.10" with five dots under it but it will go no further. I hit Ctrl+Alt+F1, I get a black screen, and if I try "recovery" I get a message there is no data found.

Pressed escape instead of Ctrl+Alt+F1

starting modem connection manager failed

starting CUPS printing spooler/server failed

Your explanation is quite vague or I couldn't make out what you are saying. Try Ctrl+Alt+F7 and you might get your GUI back.
