Thanks for your help so far. It gets about to the 'loading mint' screen, the progress bar goes alllllmooosst all the way up (in fact, it's almost impereptibly not finished), then it cuts to a black command-prompt/terminal screen where lines of "Setting up [hardware]" or "Starting [system" scroll down to the bottom, where it says "starting bluetooth..." and then hangs forever and ever. I tried recovery, but nither of my keyboards worked at the recovery console, oddly enough.
Also, I have no files currently on the Linux partition except my software - I save everything to an external harddrive or another partition. Thanks, though
Edit: Just so you know, aside from this the only other problem I'm having is that my Linux Mint boot is also hanging on another part, about a fourth of the way through the boot progress bar - it takes about 2-3 minutes to get past it, but it always does. I checked by booting into recovery, and it was trying to use "USB Device 5-3.8" or "5-1.1" or just "5-1" over and over and over again...
