[ubuntu] No GUI during startup

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I've been starting my computer with Ubuntu, but when it boots up, after a purple screen with the Ubuntu logo, I don't get any GUI, just a black screen, with text as below: * Starting Mount network filesystems [ ok ] *Stopping Mount network filesystems [ ok ] When I press the power button and shut off the computer, I get text that states Granola granola is also shutting down. My computer was booting up fine before, but I have had this issue since I had to shut down the computer with the wrong method (it had froze). - (Hardware)
