I have a very odd problem that happened to me twice since I clean installed Kali Linux V2.0 a month ago. Both times I handled the problem by clean installing the OS again. I looked it up online for hours but couldn't find any solution for the problem or any issue similar to what I had.
What I experienced was a freezing at the login page.
This occurred after I shutdown the system with the power button. The shutdown procedure was stuck for some reason and eating my CPU (according to the fan speed and heat).
I reopened the laptop and booted into Linux, but this time all the data that was being displayed on the screen while booting was in a different font size. After that I got to the login page again, with a different resolution, the system froze, I couldn't move the mouse, use the keyboard etc.
Again ... CPU was working hard according to noise of the fan.
I also tried to get a shell command using the
ctr+alt+f2 but no luck..
I haven't installed any custom driver or any program the can cause the problem.
