*Ok BC,
Yes I no my graphics card is an older one, but it has allways worked, so 
why buy a new one and spend the money when it works and has just fine...

I have tried too the Recovery mode, which brings me to a Recovery menu...
I have tried each one of the options given...
Clean yes
dpkg yes
FailsafeX yes
the other two no...

So when eachone I have tried it loads up, which brings me to the login 
prompt, but no GUI, so this is my question, how can I start up what 
every I need like startx or start gdm, none seem to work...

Do you have any idea how I can start it with a GUI display...Or what I 
may need to do to get it to start normally...???

Thanks for the help..
