Re: Mint freezes after screen off

Hello audio2u and Welcome to Linux Mint Forums,
Have you installed the recommended Nvidia driver using the driver manager tool found in the Menu under Administration? If not try that first.

Nvidia cards can be a little troublesome at times but once tamed they work quite well.

Re: Did You switched mint to non systemd init???

Mint 17 uses upstart init and Mint 18 /19 use systemd. DW's data is outdated.
If you want good solid systemd free distro I would suggest MX-17.
(Thanks for the correction rene)

Re: Which flavour goes with this computer

Any Mint DE should work with your equipment.
I doubt you'll find a big difference in xfce vs Cinnamon on that machine. You may have to do some work to get wireless working but other than that it should work fine.
Though XFCE is a fine Desktop. Enjoy the learning curve.
