Tessa mint 19.1 crashing and problems booting/ logging in

Post by greenteaphil » Fri Jun 14, 2019 4:11 pm

Has been frequently crashing and I have to force a restart at least once a day.

Now it's asking me to login and enter password but stars to be in terminal rather than the usual page. I don't know what to do here. My usual password doesn't work and I don't know what the login is.

It says:

Linux mint 19.1 Tessa Philip+thinkpad-x200 tty4
Philip-thinkpad-x200 login:

Please help

Does it come up with an error just before it goes into terminal,
for instance cinnamon session cinnamon error

No.

I think I went to grub options and recovery mode then it said it was going to reboot and went to that screen
