Hey there ubuntu forums!

After upgrading from 12.04 to 12.10 I can't use my notebook anymore. (sounds hard, but it is true...).
Okay, first of all, this is my setup: I have a Lenovo TP x230 and a ultrabase 3 docking station. Now, as the title says, with ubuntu 12.10, 64bit.

When I received my new notebook a few months ago I installed 12.04 with the installation CD. Yesterday I decided to upgrade to 12.10. Unfortunatelly. Since the upgrade I can't boot sometimes:
First Problem: When the notebook is not mounted in the docking station the notebook tries to boot but after some seconds of doing nothing (this is also not normal, since my ssd normally boots within seconds into the desktop) a screen appears that says "running on low graphics". Okay, then I press ctrl+alt+F1, login mount the notebook in the docking station and "sudo reboot".
Then the computer reboots and tries to boot up...but just a terminal appears that asks me vor my login. *sigh* I try to startx but nothing happens...when I press ctrl+C the notebook comes to the ubuntu (graphical) login screen (I dont know why -.-). But when I try to login -> Screen splashes like it would log me in -> comes back to login screen. WTF???

Second problem: Sometimes it is possible to start the X-server, like it worked now...thanks god, so I can post here...
But I have no gnome panel (yes, I am using gnome3 fallback).

So, you see, I am very frustrated, since I moved from Windows to Ubuntu about 6 months ago.

I hope, that a fresh install is not the only option! Please let me know if you need any system details (if the notebook boots the next time, I try to support you with the needed information Smile ).

Thanks in advance for your help!
