How to fix “The system is running in low-graphics mode” error?

I have been using Ubuntu for a few weeks now. I am using a HP Pavillion g6 Notebook. Now when I try and load Ubuntu it takes forever (like 20 min or something) then it reaches a error message telling be that it is running in low graphics mode. I am stuck on this and can not find any other posts solving this issue as it is quite specific. -James

A couple of weeks before I downloaded a nvidia driver as I was trying to troubleshoot an error message I was receiving, but after doing that there were no problems. I dont think I have an option to go to a backed up configuration. – jimbobjgr Sep 19 '12 at 3:41
