Bootloop issue - Zorin lite

This is the issue I'm facing everytime I boot my device. My system falls into an endless loop and won't boot up.

"How do I boot into my desktop?"

  1. When the sequence ^[[5~ starts printing I press Del button, the sequence ends with a ^[[3~ and then Zorin boots normally.

  2. If I miss the 1st process then it starts printing "dev/sda5: clean: / files: /". In this case pressing Del only won't work, so I have to press ctrl+alt+del - it takes me to the grub menu and from here when I click enter on Start Zorin it boots normally then.

Is there any way to fix this?

This denotes a KeyPress.

I believe that ^[[3~ is the insert key on your keyboard. I do not know what 5 is but... Clean your keyboard. You have a sticking key.


A good cleaning of the keyboard, You might want to take the keys off to clean them. and keep sugar based off the keyboard :stuck_out_tongue:
