Probably totally unrelated to TBS.

I believe you have a graphics card/driver issue.

What happens if you do <ctrl><alt><f1>? (may need <f2> or <f3>) Do you 
get a console login? If so most likely to be graphics.

I would search for linux install black screen and see if anything helps.
Maybe the TBS driver is damaging something?

The other option is that all is OK and it is getting tied up waiting for 
something. Getting to the console and seeing what is running should help 

Also getting to a console and doing startx may show you something. (Does 
ubuntu have startx?)
I am a Debian user so beware :-)
