I will explain what I have done.

  1. Booted my PC using a live-disk and upgraded my system.
  2. First it booted normaly but i saw it was using nouveau and i would my nvidea drivers back.
  3. Installed the drivers from xorg/eders and got a black screen and not able to run any tty.
  4. I Booted with my old 12.10 kernel tried installed some things that may missed.
  5. Yeah i got it boot, I rebooted it just for being sure and it also worked good.
  6. Next morning when i boot my PC i got black screen an no my ubuntu seems to be death at all.

I simply not understand how a PC can change it configuration even when it is turned off??? Or is my GPU died?

Some information of my PC: - toshiba sattelite 660 - GPU 350M

Okay, when you upgraded, did you reinstall? Or did you select the "Upgrade" option (assuming you used the installer)? – MiJyn Apr 27 '13 at 7:33
Upgrade option i don't wont to reinstall my programs back. – Thomas15v Apr 27 '13 at 7:34
Enabled nouveau on the old kernel and booted with the new kernel. Now it passed the black screen. Installed nvidea 319 and now it seems good. The only thing i don't know is for how long. Can it be because an old ccsm is installed. – Thomas15v Apr 27 '13 at 7:53

I don't think that your GPU is died. Maybe the Nvidia drivers are not compatible to Ubuntu 13.04 yet. Why you don't use the Nouveau drivers. They are open-source and because that they are faster compatible to newer Ubuntu versions.

Ever tried to play minecraft using nouveau :D. But I have already fixed it. Now i am using nvidia 319 beta driver and it works. (313 works to but it is not reliable PC boots only 3/5). – Thomas15v Apr 27 '13 at 8:11
