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

so after recently reinstalling some drivers I came across the issue detailed in this post

How to fix "The system is running in low-graphics mode" error?

I run 12.04 on my HP laptop with an Nvidia card. I went to GRUB and loaded failsafex to have the exact same problem described in the response up there, I then attempted to load the terminal, however when I do try and load the terminal I just get a blank screen and nothing else, is there any other easier way to access the terminal. I am quite new to Ubuntu.
