After I did a partial upgrade, my screen went blank. I think I used an onboard graphics card, but I cannot be sure.

I tried Ctrl + Alt + F1 at startup and did a apt-get upgrade and apt-get update. It didn't work.

I am very frustrated after spending three days to get Ubuntu to work for it to kill my screen the moment I did a first update.

what's your video card? do you see anything on boot or just when X starts? can you get a console how about a rescue kernel will it boot? – msw Jun 5 '10 at 12:15
Please, post /var/log/syslog and /var/log/Xorg.0.log. You can do it straight from the console with pastebinit Ubuntu utulity: e.g. pastebinit </some/log. It is located in package with the same name. – whitequark Jun 5 '10 at 15:11
