    It sounds like a video driver issue. If you type the command
    Code:
    startx
    and nothing happens, then the new kernel is not providing support for your video card. Check to see if new drivers are available or just boot into the older kernel.

    You always need to list your display driver; IE: Nvidia. Some Distros may require a "cheat code" depending on your driver device type. Become familiar with your device driver, and search for any posts based on Driver and Distro searches.
