Working Boot Broken Since Friday - Hangs on Boot

Hi All -

I’m not even sure how to go about diagnosing so happy to try anything. I can do a fresh install but would rather just resolve the problem if possible (before Monday…primary work computer…now can’t boot).

When I boot up, grub comes up and I select Manjaro Linux as I always have. My Lenovo splash screen comes up with “Manjaro” load “bar” underneath for approximately 2 seconds at which point it hangs. I can force a reboot with ctrl + alt + delete so it’s not entirely frozen.

Other things:
(1) reinstalling Grub did nothing
(2) I can login under TTY3
(3) I tried reinstalling NVIDIA driver, that didn’t resolve anything
(4) If I type “startx” in TTY3 mode I get:
“/etc/X11/xinit/initrc: line 52: xclock: command not found . . . waiting for X server to shut down (II) Server terminated successfully (0). Closing log file”

Interesting Aside (Kind of):
Friday this started happening, forcing to reboot about 10 times eventually it loaded. I rebooted and again hit the problem. I’ve now rebooted about 15-20 times without success.

sudo mkinitcpio -P
sudo update-grub

No change. Still hanging.

Not sure if this will help but dmesg is here: [ 0.000000] microcode: microcode updated early to revision 0xde, date = 2020- -

I also have the journalctl file but it’s giant (almost 100 megs) so not sure best way to share that.
