Just a hint, unless there is something special in 12.10 that you want, you're better off with 12.04 if it works well on your system. I believe the next LTS version is due in 04/2014, but the 12.04 is supported until 2015 while the 12.10 is not. A newer version isn't always better, sometimes it's just better supported.

You could try booting in with a live cd or usb and sudo cp ~/Home* /dev/"your usb dev name" sdb? I'm a little weak on some of this because I've generally backed up everything that I need. Incidentally, sometimes hardware issues can look like software issues. A failing hard disk can do some odd things. Someone more experienced should help you with those files, I don't know how else you'd get them without being able to log in

comment My Toshiba laptop doesn't find the external monitor
In the course of my playing with Zorin Linux 6.3 I had issues with video (similar but not precisely the same ones) and I sought help on their help forums. I got this, among other repository related stuff which made no difference. But this fixed my display issues in Zorin Linux... zoringroup.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=2490

comment My Toshiba laptop doesn't find the external monitor
Having come to the conclusion that I'm not going to get an answer/solution to correct this issue, I've decided to abandon Ubuntu 13.04 and wait for the next LTS version to move beyond the 12.04 that I use on my primary machine, which works flawlessly...

That's the first thing I did when looking for the monitor, in fact that's the exact image I have when I open the display settings, just the laptop display showing, thanks for your answer though
