Boot problems with Mint 19.2

Post by lilman2727 » Tue Sep 10, 2019 1:34 am

So I have a problem with booting to Mint. It was working just fine yesterday, but whenever I try to start my computer now, it boots into a command line-like environment saying it wants my log-on. After I type in my username, it asks me for my password, which I cannot write anything in. So I just press enter and it says that the password is incorrect(or something along those lines.)Any ideas how to fix this, I wouldn't mind having to login like this, but I'd prefer to login the GUI way. I will upload pictures as soon as I'm home. Any help would be greatly appreciated :)
Here's a video of what I'm seeing: https://youtu.be/xXDwrT2R29w
(I'm unable to write the password)
If it's not legible, here's what it says:

Linux Mint Tina Jan-Desktop tty1
Jan-Desktop login: (I enter lilman2727, as I chose that as my username)
Password: (can't type anything here, it just doesn't let me)
Whenever I press enter, I see:
Login Incorrect
Jan-Desktop login:

Just an endless loop of that.

You can, though. You're just not getting any visual feedback. If you just type it in and then press enter, it should log you in.
Getting to the GUI is a different matter, but this is still good to know because once you're logged in, others can help you further.

If your issue is solved, kindly indicate that by editing the first post in the topic, and adding [SOLVED] to the title. Thanks!

The problem is, I can't log in, uploading a video right now showing what it does.

Try upping the quality to 1080p, perfectly legible, at least for me. If not, here's what it says.

Linux Mint Tina Jan-Desktop tty1
Jan-Desktop login: (I enter lilman2727, as I chose that as my username)
Password: (can't type anything here, it just doesn't let me)
Whenever I press enter, I see:
Login Incorrect
Jan-Desktop login:

you probably updated your machine and upgraded to kernel 4.15.0-60 which is bad for ryzen i got the same thing with ryzen3
boot with another kernel or wait for 4.15.0-62 maybe it will fix itself. i had to timeshift back down before the kernel update which was 4.15.0-58

Don't remember updating anything, but I'll give it a try
