A dialogue now comes up when I turn my computer on (its the only thing in the middle of the screen), saying it is in low graphics mode because it could not detect my settings. I tried the option of staying in low graphics mode for this session but it would hang on boot.
When I pressed escape It said "fail" next to apache2 config file (no file exists) and a couple of other things I cant remember. EDIT: there was also a "fail" next to gnome display manager if that helps at all?
The only changes I have made in the last day or so were to the LAMP sever which I could not get working and I changed my sound settings because I got new speakers (Logitech z5500). I don't know if they would have any affect on things.
The only option that did work from the low graphics dialogue was exit to command line login (or something similar I cant quite remember what it was called). I could login to my user although I don't know any commands to sort this out so that didn't help me.
If all else fails I will reinstall 11.04 but I managed to get to the Internet so if you guys have any suggestions before I resort to that please let me know.
