Many folks claim that Toshiba does not play nice with Linux. I have a Toshiba laptop and I have installed many different distros without a problem, everything works out of the box except sound, and a quick edit of a config file fixes that.
Back on topic. The new Ubuntu is supposed to have increased hardware support, I would suggest trying that (you can always upgrade to Mint when the next release happens [maybe possibly in about a month])
Also what is on the screen when GRUB fails--is there an error message?
I see that Fred has offered to help and he is knowledgeable, patient, and persistent...he will certainly have good ideas, just keep in mind that the more information that you post the better your chances of solving your problem.
Oh yeah, stick with it...it really will be worth it.
Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored.
