I've been using ZorinOS for a while now and recently have these issues:
- Every time I start the PC Zorin does a disk check. "Press Ctrl+C to cancel all filesystem checks in progress". This will take around 20-30 seconds and the login screen appears
- At login, the mouse and keyboard USB do not have power for 10 seconds. Then the power goes on for both devices and I can login
- After logging in, the mouse cursor that was on the login screen is permanently stuck there on the screen. So then I have two mouse cursors, one I can move and another one that stuck. It won't go away, not when I lock the screen of when the screensaver goes on. Logging in again doesn't create a new stuck mouse cursor, only the first time
- When I boot the OS the first time, don't login and wait until the screensaver kicks in, it's impossible to get the screen back on. I need to poweroff the PC. After a first login, the problem doesn't occur.
I checked with the
dmesg command and I do get a lot of these messages:
[ 1522.097695] usb usb2-port1: Cannot enable. Maybe the USB cable is bad?
There are only two devices connected to the PC (mouse and keyboard). Could be defective hardware of course, but everything is brand new. And I have no idea how to test it.
It's not a dual boot system, it only runs ZorinOS.
Any help would be appreciated.
Update: It looks like the on board USB3.0 ports at the back are not working, plugging my mouse in one of these ports my mouse doesn't work.
