When I opened my computer, it shows the terminal interface.
I don't know why but I think it's due to the many times I opened te terminal and typed lots of commands to fix my wireless network and sounds (which did not work).
After that, I gave up and tried to shut my computer off. But it only showed the user options and it wouldn't shut off. I tried to wait for it to run out of battery since I only had to wait 19 mins but after a while it showed thatI had to wait 24 mins.
So I shut it down by pressing the on button.
Now, I opened it and it only shows a black screen with the same format of the terminal interface.
Plus the computer is a hand me down and my uncle who formerly owned it forgot the password.
I'm no genius when it comes to terminals so I have no idea what to do. Please help me!!
UPDATE: I opened it again and it's now stuck on the ubuntu start up screen with the dots thing. And the terminal thing is there and I have no idea what to do.
I can launch apps through the terminal but it isn't enough, you know?
Okay just to add this information: I also forgot my password. Technically, my uncle did and the computer is a hand me down one. I can't really do much wih prompts since it's password protected sometimes....
