After rebooting, I get to login screen. I proceed to login, and all I see was my background, and my mouse(I was able to open a terminal by CTRL- ALT-F2.

Seeing I'm completely lost on this, I may not have given sufficient information. Feel free to comment, about any information, logs or anything you'll need.

This might help: askubuntu.com/questions/215016/… "the problem is that there is a bug in the Ubuntu installer that removes the Linux Headers needed for the Nvidia drivers to work." would match you installing a new kernel... –  Rinzwind Apr 10 '13 at 19:57
