So... I screwed up. I was trying to get a second monitor to work on ubuntu but it wasn't auto detecting it. So I went online and found out that it could be a video drive issue. So I went to drivers and selected one of the Nvidia drivers that ubuntu suggested. At this point, I restarted the computer. When it booted, I was stuck in 480x640. I googled this issue and found that someone suggested I use some kind of command (something "purge" something "Nvidia" sorry I don't remember the actual command). After doing that, I rebooted and now Ubuntu boots to a black screen with no cursor, or anything. When I hold down my power button to shutdown, the ubuntu logo shows up with the four loading dots underneath but it shutsdown before it goes further.
If I had to guess, i would guess I don't have a video driver assigned anymore, or the one I'm using is screwed up, but I haven't used Ubuntu long, so I'm not an expert.
If someone could help, I would really really appreciate it.
