seems like it is time to draw this thread to a close. There are quite a 
lot of people participating in this thread and doing their best to help 
you to fix your problem and guide you to sources where you can learn 
more about the issue you have. If you want to work through the problem 
interactively with other people then IRC is the way forward, there are 
139 people in the UK IRC channel at the moment and 1501 in the main 
#ubuntu support channel. Lots of these will be people who leave 
themselves logged in all the time 24/7 whilst they sleep, have lunch or 
wash the car of a Sunday afternoon, but if you log on, start describing 
your problem, hang about and start having a conversation with people you 
will probably end up at some kind of solution. It might well be that 
your system is broken beyond the ability of quite a lot of people to 
fix. That doesn't mean it is unfixable, just means you might come across 
more people who want to help, but can't. Don't mistake that for people 
who don't want to help.
