For the last few days I have been trying to configure a laptop to dual boot. The laptop works works very well booting into both ubuntu 12.04 LTS and Widows 81. without any issue until I install item 1 (I need these updates for Android Development work). The same issue can be duplicated by installing item 2. The blank screen / command line appears after the GRUB menu.

sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-intel
Per the follwing post "how do I install intel graphic drivers" It is my understanding that the Intel Graphic drivers are part of the xserver-xorg-video-intel driver package.
Note: I have reviewed other posts but doesn't seem to find a solution. Thus this post.
- Toshiba Satellite C55-A5310
- Intel i3-3120M processor
- Intel® HD Graphics 4000 (Ivy Bridge GPU)
- Window 8.1
- Ubuntu 12.04.3 LTS (uname -r > 3.8.0-35-generic)
Summary of what I have tried so far:
- change quiet Splash to nomodeset.
- sudo apt-get install mesa-utils
- edit grub -> GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash nomodeset", GRUB_GFXMODE=1366x768, update-grub -> stuck at ubuntu splash, (starting CUPS printing spooler/server OK)
