Have you checked this question? -> My computer boots to a black screen. What options do I have to fix it? – Nitin Venkatesh Sep 30 '12 at 22:10

I had 12.04.1 and for some reason it would not boot anymore. So I had to reinstall a windows operating system on the computer and then try again.Sometime Ubuntu can be funny.
