I was prompted to install security updates which. Halfway through, the screen went black and stayed that way. I let it sit that way for 30 mins until I figured that at that point it must have froze so I pressed the power button to reboot. Now, once i get through the hard drive decrypt screen, the screen goes black instead of booting into the log in screen. Any one else experience this or have a solution that doesn't involve me wiping and reinstalling thus losing my files?
