the fix looks like exactly what i need, but now i've hit another hitch; i can't even type anything at the command line to log in, and yes, before anyone asks, my keyboard works fine (how else would i be typing this post?). To be honest, i'm about ready to jack it in with Linux, say what you will about Windows but in this day and age an operating system that can't even display a gui properly is a pretty poor affair.
thanks for all the help and support you've given me too guys.

I kinda cheated a little as i couldn't type at the command line and just reinstalled Mint so i skipped a few stages of your guide, but i followed part of the tutorial in my above link to find out what the busid of my graphics card was (i have two), don't know if that could have caused it?

edit - ok, done that, but i've got the two monitors running on separate x servers, is this the correct way to be doing it? if i'm switching workspaces i'd rather have both screens switch at the same time.
and no, Xinerama doesn't work, if i enable it then upon restarting the xserver both my monitors turn on, display 'no signal', turn off and repeat another 5 times, until i get an error saying that there is a problem with the xserver, then if i ok this it goes back into the loop. any ideas?
