Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I upgraded from 13.04 to 13.10 few days ago. Everything is working fine with my laptop, except a black screen appears after the login screen. It also gives message "System error!" multiple times.

I am using DELL inspiron N-4010 with 4 GB RAM

Graphics : Intel ironlake mobile(standard) Ubuntu 13.10 (64 bit)

I also tried to upgrade the drivers, but there is nothing about ironlake on the Intel website.

Please help me on this.

Welcome to Askubuntu! Is there anything else in the error message besides 'System error!'? –  Aaron Nov 22 '13 at 20:40
Is it similar to askubuntu.com/questions/365358/system-program-problem? –  Minimus Heximus Nov 22 '13 at 20:59
Does the screen stay black all the time or just when it launches? It is normal in the second case. Moreover is your Ubuntu install up to date? –  air-dex Nov 23 '13 at 0:49
