I have been running Ubuntu 12.04 off of a HP pavilion dv2000 for a while now, probably about a year or so. I've not had many issues other than not being able to properly install a graphics driver on it which didn't really bother me too much.

But I hadn't used id in a while and today after turning it on it wanted to update, so I let is. To finish the updates it wanted to restart, which I did, but when it came back on it only booted to command line.

I wasn't sure what was going on so I restarted a few times and go the same thing although it will briefly flash the Ubuntu start up screen. I've looked around some to see if I can figure out what is going on and it looks like it might be something with the graphics.

But everything I've looked at seems to involve deleting or re-configureing the graphics driver and sense I never managed to get one working properly I don't know what I can do save maybe try to reinstall.

How do I fix this issue?
