ubuntu 11.10 upgrade keyboard won't register login password.

Asked by Joe on 2011-10-21

After upgrading to 11.10 typing the login password doesn't register the keyboard entries. I can enter Ubuntu as a guest only. I also have only one screen resolution available. And the computer will not shut down.
