Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

I will give a run down of the events that led up to the issue first:

Afterwards when I attempted a reboot it sat at the purple screen for about 10 seconds, then going to a back-lit black screen indefinitely.

However, I can get into and run ubuntu if I hold shift on boot, select recovery mode, and then select boot normally. If I logout though, it gets stuck at what appears to be a pink screen.

Another note, when it is booted using nomodeset, it tells me that no discrete vga device is detected, and when I attempt to use optirun from terminal it also tells me that no discrete GPU is detected.

If anybody could offer some assistance so that I could boot into ubuntu regularly without needing to go into recovery mode every time that would be extremely appreciated! If you need any further information let me know and I'll do whatever can be done to assist. :)

I have been through that link and this issue is not solved by anything provided by that page or the pages it refers to. –  Altern Jan 9 '13 at 5:41
I am no longer experiencing this issue as I have upgraded to a newer ubuntu release in which I am not at all using my gtx630M and as such I think it may have been an issue with the GPU and bumblebee, I can't say for sure but this issue maybe relevant to others so if anybody knows for sure and could post an answer that would be great :) –  Altern Jan 9 '13 at 10:14
