I'm a brand new Linux Mint user and a Linux newbie in general. I just installed version 14 cinnamon (32-bit) last night on my laptop and have run into a problem when I try to restart. When I try to restart from the Menu option or the welcome screen my display turns black and just seems to hang there. powering off and hibernate seem to work fine. I installed on a 2006 Lenovo T60. Also dual booting with Windows 7. I had Ubuntu 12.04 installed prior to Mint but never had any issue like this, if that helps. I've tried to follow the instructions on these sites but it hasn't resolved the problem:
If anyone could help, I'd very much appreciate it. Thanks!
