Stuck on login screen

Hello all,
I’ve recently tried to install ZorinOS on my laptop, but, after installation, I boot into ZorinOS, and it asks me to login, after doing so, I was prompted with mouse cursor and the default lock screen wallpaper, after waiting countless moments I rebooted the machine. Still, the problem occurs, any help? Thanks in advance.

What are your system specs and which Zorin? Core or Lite?
On the lock screen, click the little gear button and see if switching to Wayland desktop helps.
If not, press ctrl+alt+Fn3 (maybe anywhere from Fn1-6 for you) to get a terminal. Then, for:
Core: sudo apt --reinstall install gdm3
Lite: sudo apt --reinstall install lightdm
See if that fixes it.
