Failed to load file, won’t boot

I recently got this error when trying to start up Ubuntu 12.10

microcode: failed to load file amd-ucode/microcode_amd.bin

It then starts up put I cant see any of the unity. I can however press ctrl+alt+t and get the command line to get up. How should I solve this?

You can install the missing package and reboot from the command line:

sudo apt-get install amd64-microcode
sudo shutdown -r now
