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

I recently updated my laptop form ubuntu 12.04 LTS to 12.10 and when trying to login, it presents me with a black login screen immediately and asks for the login for the laptop. Whenever I try and give it the right login and password it says Login failed and tells me to login again. I have looked into solutions but they all seem to require being able to login from the screen that I get.
