[Solved] Frustration is maxing out / needing encouragement

viewtopic.php?f=213&t=266326

I'm running 2 18.3 Cinnamon systems here, and they're both giving me nothing but problems.
Am I dealing with hardware and Linux issues with both machines?
Is there any way to find out?

Bump?
Still don't know what I'm not seeing or not doing here, and other research is only serving to confuse me even more.
