Hi todow32, welcome to the Linux Mint forums
Thanks for joining the forums! You can probably still access the virtual console with Ctrl+Alt+F1 and try to repair your system from there (you have six virtual consoles, at Ctrl+Alt+F1 through Ctrl+Alt+F6; return to the graphical desktop with Ctrl+Alt+F7 or sometimes Ctrl+Alt+F8).
Be sure also to check out the Community
website (tutorials, hardware and software reviews, ideas). You can also chat in real-time with other Linux Mint users. In the Mint Menu, in the Internet section, start the application XChat IRC. You will automatically get connected to #linuxmint-chat for general chat and #linuxmint-help for support with other Linux Mint users.
Have fun with Linux Mint.
