Can you give the output of:

sudo lshw -C display; lsb_release -a; uname -a

Thanks

The display is completely unreadable so cannot type anything.

If you get a wired connection and boot to root recovery mode (hold SHIFT at boot, select recovery mode, select root). You can then run:

apt-get update; apt-get upgrade; reboot

Or you can also try the boot option:

nomodeset

HTH

Can you help with this problem?
