Guys,

I bought a new Deskop PC today and installed Ubuntu straight away. Installation went fine but later when I restarted my computer, it won't show the GUI and all what I get to see is a Too many connections and the login prompt. Why this happens? Is there any compatibility issue with my hardware?

Google is your friend: ubuntu boot problem too many connections

It does appear to be something hardware/driver related.

Yes, I tried what was said in the websites... disable HD Audio in BIOS.... which later managed to get rid of the Too many connections. But I cannot boot into the GUI and I always land up in the text mode. Why is that I'm not able to load the GUI on my system? How can I resolve this?

Now facing another problem. This time with the wireless option. It seems that the wireless option itself is not showing up in the drop down. All I can see is the Wired network and the option to configure VPN connections.

Desktop? As in not a laptop? Wireless? How? External dongle or something?

Wireless configuration can be a problem. Check to see if Ubuntu has any proprietary driver suggestions for the wireless card. Also check with your wireless card manufacturer to see if they have a Linux driver. If not, you might have to use a Windows driver with an NDIS wrapper like http://www.linuxant.com/driverloader/.

BTW, Ubuntu 10.10 did not recognize the wireless card in my laptop - I had to downgrade back to 10.04 which offered to install a proprietary driver.

Well, I need to put this off for some time. I had a defective monitor which I had to return back. I would not be having one till this weekend. I'm gonna try what Peter has mentiond as above. Thanks for the suggestions!
