12.04 clean install now only get "input not supported" msg

Had dual boot XP & Ubuntu 10.11. Now finally getting rid of XP.

Did clean install of Ubuntu 12.04 using entire disk.

AMD Athlon 64X2 5200+

1.9 GiB RAM

500 GiB free HD space

After initial install, password entries were not accepted, they were defined as "invalid password".

Now when booting up I see the MSI Motherboard V-Class screen flash up, (I can get into the bios setup there) but after that, all I get is a box slowly bouncing across the screen saying "Input not Supported"

I have a NVidia GeForce graphics card. I suspect that this may be causing the problem. I have seen some have problems with the nvidia drivers.

I tried F6 during boot splash screen so I could use nomodeset, but F6 gets no response.

I don't know how to address the issue since I cannot get to terminal.

I tried the Demo feature of the 12.04 CD and opened terminal there.

Then I did this in Terminal:

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install nvidia-current

But, as far as I can see, that did not change anything.

What can I do from here?
