Can't really assist much with the Ubuntu problem, I had had a number of issues with Ubuntu (not least that they weren't giving me the option to goto Digikam 2.0 fast enough) and I've since moved to Arch Linux and found it, well, incredibly nice. It's worked very well for me, so for my two cents, if you're happy to muck in and learn a little terminal (and it really is only a little terminal)

I guess this is very off topic.

I know the feeling. Happened to me once and after that I never upgrade
to a new Ubuntu release but always go for a new fresh install after
doing backups. That doesn't help you now.

When do you get the black screen? During boot after or before grub or
when you are starting Xorg/Gnome/KDE?

You can always boot from a livecd and check or backup your files. From
there you can also log into your installed system setting it up in a
chroot (don't forget to bind the system resources) and update, remove
or change your installed packages. Maybe this is deep water for you so
it's better to use the livecd to backup all your data and then do a

Almost too many parameters that can be wrong to helt like this.
