Hi folks, I have a rather odd problem today.
I went to get myself a cup of tea and the computer locked locked itself as it usually does. Upon entering my password I noticed no change on the display. At first I thought my display was acting up so I turned it off and on again and it displayed an updated image, however that image was a still.
Apparently, Manjaro will currently not provide the display with an active output, it will only display the latest image every time I turn the monitor off and then back on again.
I rebooted a couple of times with no change, then finally into Windows to confirm that there was no problem with the GPU itself even though the computer was booting and posting normally and indeed, Windows ran normally.
Eventually I managed to get into virtual shell by pressing CTRL + ALT + F3 were peculiarly the picture was being updated, but on a repeating pattern of around 1 second of blank screen followed by around 100ms of displaying the correct image output.
I tried to run pacman -Syu in hopes that the system would unbork itself through an update, but unfortunately no such luck as it remains in the same state. To be clear it updated successfully but that did not affect the problem
As you can probably tell, fixing a system which doesn’t want to be seen is a bit difficult.
Thank you for your help!
