I rebooted a while ago and got a black screen. After the splash screen, no prompt for password. I can't figure it out. i can boot from the live CD (as I'm doing now) and I've checked some old threads, and done things that seem relevant (fix x, for example) but nothing.
I'm a bit of a noob as well, so I'm afraid I can't offer a better description of the problem, but any help would be greatly appreciated.
EDIT - After writing this post I went for lunch and came back and everything is working. Not sure how. I was chewing over this problem, on and off, for a good eight hours but everything is lovely again from apparently doing nothing?
