I ran my all updates from package manager and now my when I boot up I get a command prompt.
What do I need to run to get into my GUI?
Hopefully I can go to system settings and reset the boot options.
I am able to login at the command prompt.
thanks

Thanks for the replies.
I used the "startx" that Altoboo suggested and it didn't work the first time but on my second attempt it worked great.
From error messages I was able to surmise a full disk error, which I don't understand. It shouldn't be full but I have not been able to prove this since I slowly lost my system while searching Dolphin to see what has caused the disk to fill up. It is possible because I am not running a very large partition (40 gig) and I did install a VM within that.
On subsequent reboot attempts I was unable to get it to load and I'm presently looking for a way to access my files so that I can delete some files and make some space.
 I have other Windows systems on this computer but have not found a way to access ext4 files from Windows except to "read" them. I'm out of time for working on it right now but will post as I make progress.
Thanks

You have full file access in commandline. You donĀ“t have to use Windows to repari Linux  Smiley
Just use the "rm -r" command: http://www.computerhope.com/unix/urm.htm

I also had on my very old notebook (40GB) once the the problem that X-Server was not starting because of missing diskspace.
