Any ideas on why this happened? I really don't want to deal with this again:
I noticed yesterday that gnome 3 partially broke and the next restart to fix it caused an endless black screen every time. Reinstalling did nothing, but flashing the BIOS did, so the BIOS being modified without any prompt was almost certainly the culprit. Is this something that happens to any of you and do you know why? It had to have happened while using the computer because it happened in the middle of using the OS, not upon booting. No idea if the BIOS modification happened before or after gnome broke. Hopefully it doesn't happen again, I'm using kubuntu now because KDE is just better and hopefully it prevents this from happening or if it's an issue specific to gnome 3.
