Any ideas?

Didn't we resolve this for you already?
ehh...
Last issues, was about, OS upgrade failure...
due to "missing closing quote" in grub (now solved, & a BIG tq to u all)...

But, what i am highlighting NOW, is really happening..

Maybe, i will try purge the "proprietary" NVIDIA graphics drivers
& reinstall with Linux "generic" video drivers (in sacrifice of performance), perhaps...?

If I understand correctly, you have to use the recovery mode to login?

And, unless you're a gamer, you probably won't have any performance degradation due to using the opensource drivers. Driver errors don't normally cause you to need recovery mode.

What happens when you just try to boot normally?

oh i c...opensource drivers meant "xorg".....ok...

When "boot normally" the [email protected] turns [email protected] STANDBY MODE, but i think the OS successfully loaded, bcs i can via keyboard pressed (POWER button, then press ENTER button) to SHUTDOWN successfully the sys, without any display on [email protected] in STANDBY MODE ...

[SOLVED]...Tq KGIII for giving keyword...
"Nvidia" drivers was perhaps conflicted with "AMD GPU drivers" (but i aint using AMD gpu) which AMD GPU drivers was installed (cannot recalls when & by who, but i am the ONLY user with root access on this PC),
so "AMD GPU drivers" was MUST purged 1st (via sudo Synaptic) then....

Commands:
sudo apt-get remove --purge '^nvidia-.*'
sudo apt-get remove --purge '^xorg-.*'
sudo apt-get install '^xorg-.*'
reboot

now EVERY reboot ok login, WITHOUT must manual select "recovery mode"...
