I've upgraded my Ubuntu 10.04 64 bit to 12.04.1. When I restart the laptop and select Ubuntu (I have Windows 7 also); the screen becomes black. I enter the password and login to Ubuntu and I still don't see anything .

My notebook is Acer 5736Z. processor: dual core Pentium T4500. Graphics card: Intel Express (GMA 4500M). 3GB RAM

Thank you for help

After the computer is turned on, please press

Alt+Ctrl+F1

and log in.

(If you succeded) generate the Xorg file:

sudo Xorg -configure

Restart your computer. If this didn't help, please paste the generated file content.

Regards

ok, so try to press shift (as many times as possible) while booting to enter the GRUB. then select recovery mode or text mode and see if then you will be able to do it. –  Misery Aug 26 '12 at 5:59
