I appreciate all your help. I rebooted and the test user disappeared and so did my login. I rebooted again and sure enough my login credentials we're missing. I was forced to manually enter my username and password when I never use auto login. I then entered my username and password and it wouldn't take it. I rebooted, same thing. I rebooted and went to grub screen and tried to use the options it has all with no luck. I literally spent about a good 2-3 hours troubleshooting this thing. One of the options I was able to access said my physical volume was bad, but it's less than 2 months old, a western digital ssd blue. Perhaps it was because of an install I did a week ago. I was experimenting with FDE without the LVM and I installed mint in Legacy using MBR with partition 1 in ext4 as my /boot with 1024mb, and partition 2 in ext4 as my /root using the remainder of the disk, all with encryption via the "do something else" option during install. Also I turned on Admin and Supervisor passwords in my Bios. I tested this out for almost a week with no hiccups so I'm unsure if my setup caused a malfunction. Also, to add, during boot up when I was locked out, the new Mint kernel was listed in my boot options in grub. There a few possibilities of what causes this to happen. As I said I'm reinstalling right now and I'm going to run GSmart to see if I can find any errors in my ssd. Thanks for your help.
