The problem is disappear if i would remove /boot/intel-ucode.img in
initrd /boot/intel-ucode.img. How it can be fixed?

you should read this

At Manjaro terminal

sudo pacman-mirrors -f 3
sudo pacman -Syyu
sudo pacman -S intel-ucode
sudo update-grub

I had exactly the same problem I tried to describe here. It turned out that it was the graphics drivers not loading properly. So I switched to the modesetting driver (by removing the video-linux driver via MHWD).

They are not the same problem.

I did not look at your earlier topic as I think others here are better than I on graphic issues. But....setting nomodeset would not be optimal.
You should boot to prompt, remove all installed graphic drivers and install the correct driver which is still video-linux unless you have dual graphics cards or some fanciful setups in which case others can help you on it.

This usually happens because you have an Nvidia or AMD graphics card, or a laptop with Optimus or switchable/hybrid graphics, and manjaro does not have the proprietary drivers installed to allow it to work with these.

The solution is to boot manjaro once in nomodeset mode (your screen may look weird) to bypass the black screen, download and install the drivers, and then reboot to fix it for ever.
