I found out what caused was for this problem. The HDD went bad. When I booted the computer the 2nd time this morning it showed all HDD errors. I had to order a new HDD online because the stores don't have any. I should receive it no later than Feb. 16. I dusted off my old laptop which I am on running MX17 which I am fighting weird keyboard issues.
