I am new to ubuntu and don't know the error I am having while I boot my system. Following is what appears

speech-dispatcher disabled :edit/etc/default/speech-dispatcher
saned disabled: edit/etc/default/saned
 * Checking battery state OK

After this nothing happens.Checking battery state doesn't comes to an end and I have to try to reboot the system again and again until tty1 window appears which is then followed by low graphics mode error.I am using the Intel Graphic Card and the dedicated AMD Radeon 7700 is disabled. I don't want to use the AMD one but want to have a smooth operation with the Intel one.I have checked the other solutions linked to the same problem but I am not sure of them.I have tried re installing the drivers for Intel but still have the error of low graphics . I am not sure the two problems I quoting are related to each other or not.It will be appreciable if anyone can correct if I am not presenting the problem in its right sense.

Today I am facing a new problem. I can't login into my original user account.Whenever I fill in the password the screen blinks and prompts for the password again. So I have to login as a different user.But the original problem of saned disabled still exists.When I boot the system I get the message of saned disabled as shown above.Then when I try Ctrl+Alt+F1and use startX I get the following error.

Fatal server error.

No screens found. 
Please consult the The X.Org Foundation Support for help.
(EE) Please also check the log file at "/var/log/Xorg.1.log" for additional information.
xnit: giving up.
xnit: unable to connect to X server : Connection refused.
xnit: server error. 
xnit: timeout in locking authority file /home/user name/.Xauthority`.

Then I have no options but to try rebooting the system again and again until I get to login in Graphical Mode where I can't login as the original user.

The initial messages you see are just the output of the various packages running below what you (normally) see as the graphical interface. I recently had the same login loop problem; it was caused by an overly-specific autogenerated xorg.conf file (found in /etc/X11/xorg.conf).

Try re-generating your Xorg.conf file using

sudo Xorg -configure

Alternatively, you could even rename your existing xorg file and reboot to make the X server automatically detect the environment. Without the configuration file, it should automatically load the Intel integrated drivers and use your monitor's native resolution.
