User Screen Black After Changing Power Settings
#1
Hey! So I ran into a pretty big issue and am in need of some help. I was experimenting with the display brightness in the power settings of my pinebook. In doing so, I turned the screen all the way down and saved. All I see is a black screen now. I’ve restarted the computer and see up until the login screen. After logging into my user account though, the screen is black again. Does any one know how to fix this? Thanks!
