I would appreciate any guidance with solving my problem. I have a quad core machine, 8gb ram, gigabyte x48-ds4 motherboard and a nvidia geforce 9800 gtx video card. I previously had ubuntu 11 running on this machine.
I decided to try running mint 15 64 bit cinnamon. To get it to install, I had to boot up in compatibility mode. When it finishes the install and wants to do the first boot, all I get is a black screen. After the posit screens, I can't even see the mint splash / startup screens as mint is booting up. I can hear the HD starting the operating system.
Does anyone have a fix for this problem.
