- I was updating kernel, mesa, firefox, thunderbird, python and some other packages on 28/8/2013. My internet connection terminated while updates were ongoing. So Laptop did not started in next reboot.
I read all post regarding editing grub menu and setting nomodeset option along with other options but none of them worked for me.
quiet splash nomodeset vga=0×31and
quiet splash i915.modeset=1gave me front booting screen, but no avail,like dots moving in a front screen of Ubuntu... It did not bootup though. Only option was CTRL+ALT+Del when I press CTRL+ALT+Del it starts booting...it shows dots moving...but since it is rebooting, it does not load Ubuntu.
when I pressed CTRL+ALT+F2, command line shows up, when i tried to run firefox from command-line, it shows message: no display specified x11 initiallization failed
I tried to run in failsafe graphic mode but got error message as:
xinit/;unable to run server /usr/bin/x non integer argument /usr/shre/xdiagnose/failsafeserver:line 87: [ -lt:unary operator expected gdm:unrecognized service stop:unknown instance: xinit /usr/share/xdiagnose/failsafe xinit /etc/x11/xorg.conf.failsafe with- -- /usr/bin/x -br -once -config /etc/x11/xorg.conf.failsafe -logfile /var/log/Xorg.failsafe.log xinit:unable to run server "/usr/bin/X" no such file or directory
P.S. But I checked at
/usr/bin/XorgI found server is present there
Error message in

Not able to boot from LiveCD: When I tried to boot from pendrive, laptop shows a blank screen with blinking cursor, after waiting for 15 min, no progress so hard reset.
Don't suggest me to replace Ubuntu 12.04.
My laptop configuration is: Samsung NP300E5Z, 4GB RAM, Intel i5 2nd generation with inbuilt graphics 3000 series, Windows7 and ubuntu12.04 in dual boot mode.
I am able to login to Windows without any problem, so I think it is not Grub problem.
I checked almost 40 posts and related discussion, but none of them worked for me.
