Bug Description

The title is what is shown on-screen as the details of "Ubuntu has experienced and internal error".

Since that fault I have been unable to log into my home screen without going through "recovery mode"

Ubuntu 16.04 LTS on HP255 laptop

I boot up and all proceeds as normal until the home screen. The mouse pointer becomes a X and I am left with the few choices from the right mouse click menu. The only one that is of any material use is the item "Open Terminal", as that enables me to enter "shutdown" and thus turn off the laptop which enables me to close down properly.

So I then boot up and click "esc" to enter the Ubuntu advanced mode, and with that I can select to boot using one of the last three kernels in "recovery mode" (it matters not which kernel I choose as regards the outcome). Once the system has done it's thing I can then select "resume normal boot" and I am then returned to a standard logged in home screen which enables me to operate in a normal fashion. When I subsequently close down, I am initially returned to the pre-successful boot up black screen with white text which whizzes through a screen or two of text, before the laptop turns off.

I feel sure the issue that causes this problem is connected to the reports I had earlier regarding "Ubuntu has experienced an internal error" and which lists the fault details as
