Wasn’t sure where to put this, so I thought the newbie corner would be best.
I’m having issues when booting my laptop (Thinkpad x230). Every now and then, I’d say about 60% of the time, I get a blank black screen when booting. The computer is still on, but I can’t do anything. No key entry works, mouse doesn’t work, etc. I’m just forced to poweroff by holding the power button for about 2-3 seconds. Normally when you force power off, everything just blips out (like you cut the power), but with this situation, I, instead, get a quick message (something about name not matching and systemd - looks like the same message as when I shut off). I have no idea what’s going on, no idea what to even Google (tried - no luck), and I’ve asked Arch forums with no luck. Any idea what’s happening?
I’m using the xfce version, if that makes any difference.
