You have to re-configure the packages/drivers installed for latest kernel

It will do nothing but set-up/configure the packages which was meant for your oldest kernel.

Here is the possible solution

Follow these steps precisely:

During boot select the Recovery Mode of your latest kernel and start your system in Recovery Mode

Once your system starts in recovery mode chose grub option listed in the menu. It will prompt you to mount your system in read/write mode. Chose yes. After updating grub it will exit and will come back to the menu.

This time chose root and execute following commands to re-configure your packages:

apt-get autoclean && apt-get autoremove
dpkg --configure -a
dpkg-reconfigure $(dpkg -l | grep xserver | awk '{print $2}' | tr '\n' ' ')
dpkg-reconfigure -a
dpkg-reconfigure -a would take some time depends upon packages installed in your system. so please wait for it to complete. If it doesn't give any messages means it executes successfully. If it gives any message just note it and post in comment

dpkg-reconfigure lightdm
press Tab to highlight Ok and then Enter to exit.

update-initramfs -u
reboot
Once your system restarts chose again your latest kernel normal mode and see what happens.. You should not get black-locked screen this time.

Reply if something goes wrong, or you get any error message in any particular command. Mention the command with the error message.
