    Exclamation PopOS black screen AFTER grub

    Hi, I'm experiencing a weird problem.
    I have a laptop with dual sysytem install: latest PopOS as main, and Win10 as secondary

    Everything was working fine.
    Last night I logged into Win10 to play a game, all went fine, no suspicious system updates or upgrades happened, but then when I finished and rebooted into linux this happened:
    - laptop reboots
    - GRUB menu appears
    - I select PopOS (either current kernel or a previous one, seems to make no difference)
    - the screen goes grey-black
    - ...nothing...

    Usually after the screen goes black for a few moments it then comes alive with system log-in prompt.
    Not this time.
    Although sometime I see the log-in prompt briefly appear on-screen before going all grey-black again.

    Win10 on the other hand still boots fine (and I'm using it to post here).

    What could have happened?
    What can I do to fix it?

    Running more tests... for absolutely no reason, during one reboot, I saw clearly the whole log-in screen, with nice background image, mouse cursor, etc.
    But it lasted just one second, then I got again the black screen.

    I tried to write my password anyway, see if it worked and changes something... but apparently nothing happened
