Desktop won't load after boot

Hi, i am new to Manjaro and am booting from a USB drive. After booting up manjaro, it seems to freeze right at the desktop, and the welcome to Manjaro window never pops up. A desktop image appears without a mouse cursor and no access to any applications. I am completely unaware as to why this is occuring.

Hello there!

Can you try booting into TTY?

You can try doing Ctrl+Alt + F2 during boot where you get all that text, then put username and password.

When there, make sure you are using the correct driver and the latest kernel
