I also tried the adding the nolapic option in the grub menu by selecting the kernel then pressing 'e' then i booted the kernel and when it was loading it only showed a black screen, no gdm login screen and then and then a blue screen appeared saying my my xorg wasnt configured correcltly or there's a problem

right. You get a command line, right? You can write stuff? Try this sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg
That will run a wizard that will help you configure X properly, and if you're lucky, it will run just fine afterwards. Provided you give sensible information, of course. When the wizard is finished, just type startx.

Thank you sir for time and concern. I already figured out the problem. I just installed nvidia-glx-new using the command line. And now my ubuntu works great.Thanx
