I just updatet my Ubuntu 13.10 and had to reboot but when I did I got a window saying

"The system is running in low graphics mode. Your screen, graphics card and input device settings could not be detected correctly. You will need to configure these yourself." And I cant use my mouse or mousepad. They just wont work or I just cant see them dont know..

I just saw the bumblebee site but for the configuration I need to connect to the internet and I cant.... what do I have to do?

The output of the commands: sudo lshw -C display; lsb_release -a; uname -a are:
