Title pretty much says it all. I was refered with another problem i had to a answer which said i should do that command. Now the drivers seems to be uninstalled. I can't move the mouse or the keyboard when i come to the login screen. It works in GRUB though.

I don't see removing the lock file effecting your keyboard, however what happened to produce the orphaned lock file could be related. try doing

apt-get -f install

I have no idea how it happend either.. Basiclly a window popped up and said Your graphics driver has stopped working so graphics are working on minimal resource or whatever it said then all the drivers stopped working and when i restarted the computer it didn't got back to normal. apt-get -f install does not work and it doesn't even work in recovery mode. – alexand Jan 7 '13 at 22:27
