If there is no fix, is there any way to change the bootup and shutdown so that it is done just in white text on black screen rather than with the green mint logo screens; e.g., like recovery mode looks like, except that my recovery mode does not work . . .

That would not cause recovery mode to stop working and the graphics problem you have Open mintupdate and check the logs for the latest updates - unfortunately there is no way to save the log (at least not in Gloria may have changed in Helena) See if there's anything related to grub, the kernel and similar
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
