cannot log in
hello, afterbeing in "root" i clicked the restart option ubuntu (11.04) ubuntu logs off the main screen but then hangs on the screen with ubuntu with dots underneath. The only way i could get out was to switch the power on & off to the laptop. I now cannot get past the ubuntu log in screen. It will ask for my password, when I type it in it will give me a blank screen for a mo as if to log in, then return to the log in screen. This happens for my profile and root. Can any one assit please. Any assistance greatly appreciated.
Can you help with this problem?
