Been running fine for the most part on Manjaro for years. Recently my laptop started having problems booting up (staying on Manjaro logo with dots). When I press ESC during boot I see these messages (will attach screenshot). It's gotten lately where I just do ctrl+alt+F6 login CLI and startx is the only way to get into XFCE. Also, I always think it has something to do with kernel version I use. In the past if some update ever caused me a problem I could always boot into different kernel version and be fine (then run updates again and Manjaro always fixes problems quickly). In this case, doesn't matter what kernel I use, they all having problems starting the GUI.
On top of that, and probably separate issue, I've been having GUI lock up where I can move the mouse but can't move any windows or interact with anything. That seems to be the Brave web browser which I stopped using temporarily and haven't had a lock up since. When things do lock up, ctrl+alt+F6 doesn't work. Neither does **Alt + PrintScreen + r + e + i + s + u + b. Those use to work when I have problems with the GUI locking up. I've given the laptop hours to see if it would work itself out and it never has. I may have created the boot problem by hard powering down.
That's what's going on. Any suggestions how to proceed in determining why I have to go to CLI and startx to get my GUI?
