Can you check for broken dependencies?

open terminal and type:

sudo apt-get check

Post what you get. If it doesn't show anything you should be ok. Also please list your specs so we can better help you with your problems.

Looks like your dependencies are good. Your computer specs should include:

Manufacturer (Dell, HP...etc)
Processor
Memory Installed
Operating System(s)
Monitor
Anything else you might think would be helpful.

after installing some language packages it shown some colored dots on the display and after that is unstable.
it also shows me two different boot options, 2.6.24-19-generic and 2.6.24-16-generic
at the 19-generic is not either the sound nor the compiz fusion effects are working, in -16 is the sound working.

I have reinstalled Elyssa and the problem is fixed.
I am not going to try to change language again after this problem have occurred.
