Hey team, I have been using Zorin on my Alienware M15 R6 for a couple of months now (dual boot with Win) and I have been loving it.
A few days ago I was trying to control the fan speed of my NVidia card (RTX 3080), which is constantly on even when I have no processes using GPU. When I restarted the machine, Zorin wouldn’t boot anymore - it is stuck to the logo screen. I am not exactly sure what command triggered this dysfunction, but I might have tried some of the commands in this post
I tried recovery mode with the latest kernel (enable networking and dkpg - it removed some packages) but still no luck.
I tried pressing esc when the logo shows up. The only issues were a series of
[FAILED] Failed to start Load/Save Screen Backlight Brightness ...
after these messages, it just goes black with a tiny white line on top/left and I can't do anything.
Worth mentioning that the backlight brightness has always been an issue (it doesn't work with Fn keys nor GUI slider).
Any help would be highly appreciated!
