I was working on my linux machine earlier today and when I was in the middle of updating my java packages through the package manager and installing coffee script, my windows started not working and closed down. I didn't think much of it and kept on working in TexStudio and finishing my hand in for this week, saved it and closed it and closed my browser and thought
- "Hey, maybe it just needs a reboot!"
I then rebooted the computer, chose my Linux Mint partition and here is where it gets weird. The only thing I see when I boot is the Linux Mint logo and after that the screen is just completely black and all I can see is a few light grey pixels in the top left of my screen. I looks like a terminal cursor, but it's not flashing and nothing happens when I press my keyboard.
The good news here is that I can boot the Linux partition in recovery mode, but I don't really know what to do from there. Is there a way to revert some of the latest changes back to how it was set up yesterday? Or am I completely lost here? I would love to have it up and running again, because it's my favorite development environment but I do not know much about the kernel and how it works.
If you need more info, please tell me how to get it and I will post it here.
lspci output is seen above
Also I noticed the the message
ideapad_laptop: Unknown Event: 1 appears on the screen about every 10 seconds. I cannot press
Ctrl + Alt + F1 to enter tty from non-recovery mode
