I will give a run down of the events that led up to the issue first:
- I performed a clean install of ubuntu 12.04
- I upgraded to the 3.7.1 kernel using the instructions provided by the second post in this link How to update kernel to the latest mainline version without any Distro-upgrade?
- I then got my wireless working using the instructions provided in this link http://forums.opensuse.org/english/get-technical-help-here/wireless/477285-rtl8723ae-realtek-wirless-driver-hell-3.html#post2494079
- I installed bumblebee as this is an optimus laptop with a gtx630M
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. :)
