I wonder if you could help me. I'm pretty new with Linux (Mint 16). I installed it on my HP Pavilion 20 as a replacement for windows 8 and it was working pretty fine and fast.

Until I wanted to try out the photo desklet ... When I checked the photofile to use and confirmed my system suddenly stopt all the way. Nothing reacted any longer. So I closed my computer and rebooted.

Since I can't start up linux. I can log in, hear the login-sound but only see a black screen and the mouse.
With CTRL-ALT-F1 I managed to get into the Terminal.
I tried several things, reboot in secure mode, etc. but not quiet sure what to do.
I got this error message in the recovery-boot log:
x-server failed to load
loading extension glx
loading extension drm report modesetting isn't supported
fatal error: no screens found
failed to load module "fglrx" (module does not exist, 0)
Any suggestions how I can proceed? Maybe, how can I totaly delete and reinstall the driver using the terminal? I don't know the codes for that.
Kind regards,
