I was writing a mail in Thunderbird and the cursor froze, waited about 20 seconds and it started to flash again but after every click it froze for about 20 seconds, finally I managed to get to the menu and shutdown after going through this process all the way.
Re-started and it found errors which I tried to fix via the recovery mode then normal boot............That's when it loaded into a full screen of a picture from my pictures folder and stayed like that and the keyboard became inactive, no lights. I tried to restart and the same thing happened but a box appeared saying 'Cinnamon just crashed.you are currently running in Fallback Mode..do you want to restart cinnamon yes or no'
yes takes me into a loop and no leaves me on the same screen with no way of making changes, after a while the screen goes black and when i move the cursor it asks for my password which i give but only to be returned to the same screen again.
Any help appreciated
