Black screen with nothing... does CRTL-ALT-F1 do anything?

Sorry, that was an information request. Also, if CRTL-ALT-F1 works, login, and then paste the output of the following command (who knows, might be due to a proprietary driver that's broken with your card *shrugs* ):

grep Driver /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Ok, you aren't using a proprietary driver by the looks of it.
If you know a bit about your machine / graphics setup, go into safemode and then run:

sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg

and answer the questions.
After that, reboot with

sudo shutdown -r now

and try login in X/GDM/Graphical Login screen.

Hope this helps,

Can you help with this problem?
