This makes me remember when something prevents X to start properly.
What if you press ctrl-alt-f1?
Do you get a login prompt? (I hope… )

no it gets me to login terminal

and idk how to login in there

when i pres ctrl + alt + f1/f2/f3/f4/f5/f6 it gets me to login terminal but i dk how to login there

So there you can enter your credentials.
login: [enter here your username] (Press ENTER)
password: enter your password here (you will not see it)
Hopefully you can log in.

Those are the consoles, you get the graphical console (X server) with ctrl-alt-f7

oh thnx
will try and reply

btw i guess clicked an button
which comes at login screen when its at sleep
see first we see a password enter ob, then an > then one button and then one more
I bymistakenly clicked on that last one

hello sir @kovacslt u were typing

do u know which button it was?

I suspect, X is not running, try to (re)start it
So you hopefully logged in on the console.
sudo su
I don’t know what DE you have, lightdm or gdm is your display manager?
systemctl status gdm
or try:
systemctl status lightdm
For which you get an answer other “Unit ####.service could not be found.” that is your DM.
Say, it is lightdm.
first try stop it:
systemctl stop lightdm
then start again:
systemctl start lightdm
Do you get an error report about something failed?
If not, press ctrl-alt-f7.
If yes, tell what’s the output of
journalctl -xe.
We may need to examine /var/log/Xorg.0.log

how to retrat x ? and i cant log in to the consoles I tried it
btw sry i cant get ur lines u said from the srd line sryyy

oh yeah i guess i got it u are saying abt sending the error which happened after i logged in

Quick and dirty demo.
On a test VM I kinda pressed ctrl-alt-f1.

Logged in, gained root acces, restarted lightdm.
Does this help for you?

You surely mistyped your name/password.

one prob
now i cant see grub at start itself
