I restarted a frozen Ubuntu 16.04.1 session using Alt + PrtSc + REISUB and now the graphical login manager does not show and I cannot log in.
The following message briefly displayed and then disappears in an ongoing cycle.
/dev/sda1: Clearing orphaned inode 12976130 (uid=0, gid=0, mode0100600, size=334) /dev/sda1: clean, 959550/14221312 files, 50959728/56878080 blocks [ OK ] Stopped LSB: Start NTP daemon.

I managed to log in using Ctrl + Alt + F1, however after a few seconds, the screen flashes black, and continues displaying the message above in the same manner. I can press Ctrl + Alt + F1 and the login is still active.
I've tried restarting it a few times using the power button with no success.
How can this be resolved? I still have access to recovery mode.
