Hello pcpunk - What exactly happened? Can you describe it better? For instance, it booted to a black screen? Or it booted to the grub menu, you chose to boot Linux Mint, then it crashed? Or did it make it all the way to the desktop, you made your internet connection, started Firefox, then it crashed while you were "on the net"?
I think it would help us if you could describe your system in better detail:
1.) The manufacturer and specific model of the motherboard.
2.) The processor.
3.) The amount of system memory you have. This is important, because some systems with low system memory should use a version of Mint with a desktop that is lighter on system memory.
If everyone is thinking alike, then no one is actually thinking.
