I have Ubuntu installed on a Gateway NV53A laptop with Windows 7 removed, and recently when I've tried to start the computer, it gets stuck at the logo screen that says "Ubuntu" with the progress bar lights.

I recently upgraded to 13.04.

I'm able to start by going to advanced options in the GRUB menu and then selecting recovery mode and then hitting F, but I have to do this each time I start. It also seems like it doesn't work as well this way.

Thanks. I'm having other problems though like Google Chrome and Firefox don't open when I'm able to start it up. Is there a way to repair broken files or features? It seems like something went wrong when I upgraded. –  Inquisitor Ehrenstein Jun 18 '13 at 14:22

Boot in recovery mode. Type sudo dpkg-reconfigure lightdm in the terminal and choose the lightdm. Reboot your system in the normal way.
