Hi- Been running Zorin OS 16 core for about 6 months on my Lenovo Thinkpad P50 with few issues. After a shutdown a few days ago, I'm unable to login. I get a frozen login screen. After clicking on my user name, the lockscreen appears but will not accept password entry. Mouse arrow is frozen, keyboard as well. Not able to switch to a terminal window.
I'm running kernel 5.13.039 and also have 5.13.037 installed as well.
Computer is a dual boot. Windows is installed on a separate NVME drive, and it boots up fine. Computer has hybrid Intel/Nvidia graphics.
I've been unable to run fdsk from grub console.
Home files are backed up via BackInTime, and there is a TimeShift back up snapshot series availble as well. They are on a separate intenal SATA SSD.
Booting from a USB stick (MX LInux) shows all drives and partitions. I attempted to run a timeshift restore, but although it started, it was taking forever to do the initial file check.
After leaving the login screen up for a while, I get a lot of terminal output with failed to write entry for systemd-journal being most prevalent
Any suggestions for a fix would be appreciated. Thanks.
