Prior Actions: I was editing a file (and the computer kept on getting hotter and the fan spinned exhaustively) and then after finishing my file I saved it but I was unable to do so because an error appeared telling me that the disk is readonly. So I turned it off then on, after that I can only see a splash loading screen that does not continue to the login screen.
Solutions taken: Took the battery off and placed it back in and then turned on the laptop but the splash screen still persists. I also tried booting and tried entering the manjaro setting using F12 on boot but I am unable to go to the Manjaro settings screen and continues only to the splash screen.
Related Error Messages: I am unable to provide error messages since whenever I turn it on the only thing I can see is an infinite splash loading.
Distribution: Manjaro lxce
Thank you and I aplogize for my earlier post because I am new to this forum. <3
Yes the one with a Manjaro logo and a loading icon. It persists like forever, it does nothing but show the splash screen. Could you check on the screenshot I shared? Hope it could be of help to find out the issue. Thank you for the quick response!
I can actually use the BIOS setting and switch between them, and tried checking my ram and hdd for some errors as seen on my the screenshot I sent but I am not really good at them. Thanks btw for the help.
If you installed the system in UEFI mode, then you should select the first entry in BIOS boot menu, that is the Manjaro. Booting from HDD1 i guess uses legacy boot if i’m not mistaken.
Once you select the Manjaro, try to press Shift and can you then select a different kernel from GRUB menu, or select the advanced option of fallback initramfs? Or maybe even press e to edit the boot and replace quiet with single then press F10 to save and continue booting. Once in TTY you should be able to perform a full system update, eventually startx as your user…
I am actually a web designer so I was editing text files like css. I forgot to mention them. Thanks for informing and the ESC key did the work now I am on the Manjaro setting screen. How should I proceed? Thank you very much!
so try selecting a different kernel in advanced options, if you dont have try the fallback one … then press E and replace quiet with single, then press f10 to save and boot… if you get stuck on the splash screen press: ctrl+alt+f2, if f2 doesnt work, try f1-f6 keys instead of f2
also take a picture of the logs and post it here
Thank you very much for the help. After clicking f2 on splash screen I’m redirected to the console with logs. I was able at first get to the ui version but now I can’t instead I get this. Please guide.
