Video is unresponsive once startup is complete


Hello there. I added a file to my X11 config so it would minimize screen tear on intel graphics. I went away for a few hours then came back to boot up the system. Everything went fine, up until the very last moment when I heard the oh-so pleasant sound of the Linux Lite startup but without any indication I had made it to my desktop. In fact, I was still stuck on the "ASUS" loading screen (normally my computer does "ASUS", *standard LL loading* and finally "ASUS" again before showing the desktop; in this case i'm stuck on the very last "ASUS" screen).

So I removed the added file with a live session, no changes. I played around with the recovery mode, and reinstalled my nvidia drivers (btw they're not the open source ones).

TL;DR - My system loads until the very last moment when video freezes but I can still hear the startup sound. Tried messing around with recovery and drivers, nada. Any help is appreciated :D

And for the curious ones this was the file I added and then removed to my /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel-graphics.conf

--- Code: ---Section "Module"
   Load "dri3"

Section "Device"
   Identifier  "Intel Graphics"
   Driver      "intel"

   # Required by Google Earth, other modern GL apps:
   Option      "DRI"   "3"

   # Fixes screen tearing:
   Option      "TripleBuffer" "true"
   Option      "TearFree"     "true"
--- End code ---
