Bug Description

After installing Ubuntu 12.04 on my desktop PC and installing proprietary graphic card drivers and rebooting ubuntu fails to boot up and switches between black screen and flashes of desktop without unity menu. I am currently running on PC Nvidia Geforce 7100 Graphics card. Have tried fresh install several times but just does not work.

I also have two laptops. One which I installed 12.04 Beta 2 on a month ago and kept it updated and it has kept running ever since with no issues. The other laptop has 12.04 LTS installed and it has a issue on startup sends a message through apport but does go and has no other issues.

Obviously the issue is with the desktop pc. I do note this bug has been around for a while now but has not been addressed. Is it likely to be addressed. I know this has been reported elsewhere but would appreciate being updated.
