As the title says, I'm new to Manjaro, and I didn't realize I was expected to read the forum posts prior to applying the updates. So, a few days ago, after applying the updates, I leave my desk for about 30 minutes, and come back to a blank screen. I forced a reboot, and now the computer stalls at

So far I've tried adding
nomodeset as a Kernel parameter for a one-time boot via grub. That seems to have helped it get a little further through the startup process, but not enough for me to actually log into my computer. I'm happy to provide any additional information, if needed.
And yes, from now on I will read the forum post before updating.
