I have been running Ubuntu for a couple years version 12.04. It has been working correctly and the only thing that I remember changing is to make it boot automatically for my wife. Now, it boots up with the following on the page in very small print:
at least that is what it appears to be. There could be " at the beginning before helen but I am not sure.
After it gets this far I am no longer able to input anything from the keyboard. I have tried running GRUB in the recovery mode but it made no change.
I scrolled down to the following line:
Ubuntu 12.043, 2 LTS, kernel 3.2.0-30-generic (recovery mode)
There are actually several choices and I have tried all of them to no avail.
I don't have a clue how to get past this screen and enable keyboard input again.
I am just an inexperienced user and don't know much about Ubuntu
