I use Ubuntu 16.04 LTS on my HP Pavilion laptop.

It worked properly for 10 days after I upgraded Ubuntu 14.04 LTS to Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. But now I have a problem after typing my password in the login window. It doesn't load anything, but it shows only the background theme display picture.

The only information I can see while the system boots is:

dev/sda2:clean,451381/30236672 files.47752164/120944128 blocks

(files and blocks in this output are increasing with every boot)

I don't know what exact issue is this. This happened after installing the OS update.

The guest session works properly. Please help me solve this issue.

  • was this condition triggered by installing graphic drivers for Nvidia or AMD card ? when this happens can you pull up a terminal window ( ctrl-alt-T ) ... can you reach the console ( ctrl-alt-F1 ) if so then doing ( ctrl-alt-F7 ) will toggle you back ... if terminal fails and console succeeds then you can fix a bad graphics driver issue from your console window – Scott Stensland Aug 23 '16 at 14:02
  • dev/sda2:clean,451381/30236672 files.47752164/120944128 blocks this kind of information only i can seen while system boot – prasanthvigal Aug 23 '16 at 18:08

please check whether you have got any icons in right top corner of your desktop window. if yes, no problem in installing. Even though 16.04 OS having some drawbacks, it is very good at its performance matter
