When you stuck at this state , try to hit CTRL+ALT+F1 and see if you can connect from there with your username & password.. then you have to memorize the commands below and give them one by one .. (or write them down to a paper)

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
sudo dpkg --configure -a
sudo apt-get install -f
sudo dpkg-reconfigure lightdm
sudo service lightdm stop
sudo service lightdm start

the last command will attempt to bring up the login screen , tell us if did it.

to of the command didn't work eithre:
1. sudo dpkg --configure -a
2.sudo service lightdm stop

Did you install the proprietary video driver yet?
