Ubuntu updating kernel
Upgrading the Linux kernel is something just about any user can do.
If you're wanting to get some of the improvements of the latest, greatest 4.x kernel, and you're running a distribution that is holding tight to the 3.x release, give these instructions a try and see if your Linux machine doesn't enjoy a bit more 4.x freedom.
Or is that your backup that you just booted into to report the problem? There seem to be problems in other distro's as well, a collegue informed me.

I cant take a screenshot since there is just a blank screen.
I'd been wanting to do this for a while anyway, in order to take advantage of some of the improvements and newer features found in the 4.x kernel.
The update process can take some time to complete and some steps may take longer than others.
To complete this tutorial you will require a running Ubuntu Linux Server 16.04 LTS system and an account with sudo administrative privileges.
The system must have network connectivity and access to an Ubuntu update server.
This is running Ubuntu Mate 16.04 on an Intel Core i5-3570K with onboard graphics and luks disk encryption.
Although the system gets a little farther than it did with 4.4.0-108, the password screen comes up in low resolution mode and does not respond to keyboard input, apparently crashed.
If I boot in recovery mode, it only displays (translated in English) : Loading Linux 4.4.0-108-While trying to get the BIOS update to a USB-Pendrive i found out on my Thinkpad x230 running 17.10 the latest kernel update make the USB not working properly :/ It show all usb pendrives as write-protected, while with the older kernel they do work.
