I update to the new kernel a few minutes ago. Ubuntu doesn´t boot properly after the update. Give a me a window that says low graphics mode and input devices disabled. I can´t press ok because my keyboard and mouse doesn´t works. I´m using the previous kernel now.

I've just had this problem, what graphics card do you have??

Try reinstalling the headers and restarting the machine:

Ctrl + Alt + T to open a terminal.

alternatively use

Ctrl + Alt + F1 to switch to terminal.

sudo apt-get install linux-headers-generic
sudo shutdown -r now

If that doesn't fix it you will need to remove and reinstall your graphics drivers, but installing the headers and removing and installing my nvidia drivers has fixed my problem.

I just noticed the end of the question saying that you can use your mouse or keyboard, I'm not sure how you would fix that, but to fix the graphics issue you can do the above. – D4nC00per Dec 19 '12 at 19:01
