Again i will state that im not computer literate. I had ubuntu 12.4 on an acer aspire. i did an update and after it restarted ubuntu wouldnt boot up any longer and all im getting is a dos like screen. again sorry if im saying this stuff wrong. as soon as it boots up i get the ubuntu purple screen but then it goes to a black screen that says:
"stopping system v runlevel compatibility" [ok]
"stopping cold plug devices" [ok]
[ok] stopping log initial device creation
[ok] starting save udev log and update rules
[ok] stopping save udev log and update rules
if someone can help me recover my ubuntu i would really appreciate it.
