I have a HP laptop (model: 15-cw1068wm). If this laptop isn't plugged into power on boot, it makes it past the GRUB loader but goes to a black screen and just sits there. I have to hold down the power button and do a force shut-down each time. However, if I plug in the AC power, it boots and everything seems to work. I believe I am running Mint 20.
I am not sure if this is related or not, but when it does boot up on power, once I select Linux from the boot options (dual booting with Windows), I get an error message at the top of the screen that stays there for maybe 10 seconds or so.
[1.506778] Initramfs unpacking failed: decoding failed
[1.520344] pci 0000:00:00.2: AMD-Vi: Unable to read/write to IOMMU perf counter.
[1.606653] tpm-crb MSFT0101:00 can't request region for resource [mem 0xda5
Once this error is displayed and goes away, the LinuxMint boot logo appears, then a few seconds later, it goes to a black screen, shows the error message again from above. A few seconds later the error goes away and then the Mint login screen appears. If the laptop isn't plugged in, I get a black screen after I select linux from the boot options and that's it, no errors, no nothing, just a black screen.
As said, i'm completely new and have no clue what I am actually doing. I found a form online where someone else was having a similar issue but on a Dell laptop. Someone said to edit GRUB, which I followed their advice but it didn't seem to make a difference at all (not sure what I actually did and not sure how to get back to where I made that edit at).
Sorry for the long post but if anyone can assist, I appreciate it.
Not sure if this is needed or not, but read it helps to post the system report stuff.
