Hi Again.  I decided to try something new today. As I mentioned
previously, when I boot it goes directly into a blackscreen - but I
believed I could blindly log in.  So today I did the following:

1. Cleared my syslog (just wanted to see if there were obvious errors going 
forward) 
2. Rebooted my computer (with the 4.4x kernel) 
3. As soon as the screen turned black I entered in the pass-phrase  for the 
encryption. 
4. I waited until the HDD light stopped flashing
5. Once the HDD stopped flashing, I entered my login password (again- I'm doing 
this blindly as I could not see anything). 
6. The screen flashed for a second and the desktop actually loaded! 

Not sure if this helps your investigation or not but I hope so.
