I am new to Ubuntu. Recently I installed Ubuntu 14.04 on my Dell Inspiron 3537 laptop having Intel HD 4400 graphics and AMD Radeon 8760m Graphics card. After installing intel drivers using the Intel Linux driver installer and rebooting I cannot get past the Ubuntu loading screen. I have tried every various solutions but no luck. I tried logging in with the recovery mode too. But no chance! I have tried the procedure mentioned in this question too.

My computer boots to a black screen what options do i have to fix it?

Is there a way for me to get back the default driver or reset the driver using the LiveCD? How can I fix this issue?

The same procedure works for both the AMD and ATI drivers. You might need to run this in recovery mode if you cannot open a tty. How do I remove the proprietary ATI drivers?
