Had the same problem when the upgrade changed the password
ended up uninstalling the os and reinstalling
not much help for the linux forums as they all say what that fix is bit it is past the password and without the password all the advice is useless
However there is a chat line to technicians that you could talk to to explain the problem
I just didn't have the time

you have to partition your hard drive and put win on one partition and linux on the other partition
then when it boots up yo set your bios to ask which os you want and go enter on it and it will boot that os for you or i think that you can put an icon on desktop and double click on that to open the os system
talk with a computer geek to see how it is done

Open a terminal. apt-get update, Download wajig (apt-get install wajig) if you don't have it already. Purge devede (Wajig purge devede) and then reinstall (wajig reinstall devede). This should remove old links and establish the correct ones.

In newer versions of Ubuntu, the X11 settings are automatically detected and generated without a need for a configuration file, unless you are using a proprietary driver. If you have a proprietary driver, the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf is still used.

My Suggestion would be to stick with Ubuntu. Windows 8.1 will be much slower on the same computer.

However, if you do really need Windows, my suggestion would be do run it under Ubuntu using VirtualBox (free) and then install the Extension pack which you can download from the Tools menu, when you have your OS running. This then gives you full screen. For your communications, make sure that your network adapter has been set to 'Bridged'

It will install on a different clean (empty) partition.
