Hello all! I am new to Lubuntu and Linux as a whole. The reason I am starting my journey with Linux is that I recently had a scare with my daily driver laptop that runs Intel i7 8th gen hardware. I was lucky to be at a friends house with another computer near by to trouble shoot and getting it going. It ended up my ram went bad. Anyways, it got me thinking that I need a backup computer to troubleshoot anything down the line. The laptop listed in the title is the one I need help with Lubuntu on. If you bother to look at the specs of the old one, it runs an AMD A4-5000. Before I got here, I replaced and doubled my ram and upgraded to a SATA SSD and installed a fresh version of Windows 10. It was still sluggish at best and almost slower than before without the power cord in. I figured weak battery, so ordered a new one. Nope, so then I figured this would be better because it seems optimized for old hardware.
Sorry for the long back story, my problem that I need help with is when I booted it up from safe graphics, it ran through a file system check (ctrl + c tp cancel?) I figured it was fine. It finished doing that and it told me it ran into one issue. Then the screen flashed and now I am stuck at a blank screen. A screen almost identical to when the mobo is running POST. As I write this, it is still stuck in this screen.
The version of L that I am trying to boot is 20.04. Thank you in advanced!
