What do you mean by wont boot?
If you get a black screen, and you had the nvidia drivers installed, you may be using the wrong driver. At the black screen, press Ctrl + Alt + F1 to drop to a console and then log in as yourself.
run the following command
sudo mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.saved
That's a capital x and two ones. This command will rename your X config file forcing an auto-detect when you reboot which you can do by running the following command:
sudo shutdown -r now

It is very likely (almost a certainty) that your xorg.conf file is not configured properly for the on-board video. As mentioned by rokytnji, you first need to enable the on-board video in the BIOS, then when you boot it should put you into a text-mode login since it won't be able to start the X server. You then need to alter your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file by running the command "Xorg -configure". That will probe your hardware and write a new xorg.conf file for you. You should then be able to start the X server with the command "startx".Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
