As a temporary workaround, you may be able to log in by going to recovery mode, run 'grub', then run 'resume'.

What works for some having this problem is to add 'nomodeset' to grub. To do this, run:

sudo nano /etc/default/grub

and change this line:

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"

to this:

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash nomodeset"

Exit (Ctrl X), save, and run:

sudo update-grub
