"A start job is running for Hold until boot process finishes up" on Zorin 12.3 Core


I installed Zorin on my thinkpad X230T this morning and have been using it all day. I shut it down for a few minutes and when I turned it back on, it was stuck on the splash screen for nearly 45 minutes before I shut it off, you know the screen with the Zorin logo and everything before you log in. I googled it and everyone said to try ctrl+alt+f1 or f2 for ubuntu so I gave it a shot, it gave me the "A start job is running for Hold until boot process finishes up (Xmin Xs/no limit)" message. I have been unable to do anything other than ctrl+alt+f1 or f2 and view that screen, but now it won't do anything when I press it, just stays at the splash screen until I shut it down.
