Debian boots to black screen with blinking cursor. Yay. I'm assuming this is apu/GPU related issue. So annoying. I just want cinnamon on my laptop

@jordan31 Try Ctrl + Alt + F# for a few F# keys, releasing and re-pressing Ctrl + Alt each time.

@wizzwizz4 but got to figure out exactly the problem then maybe solve it

@jordan31 Try restarting ten times, allowing the machine to cool in between. If it eventually works fine, probably intermittent GPU failure like I got.
