A quick google search of 'Method parse/execution failed' seems to indicate that those are Bios errors. Unless you want to update your Bios, they are probably safe to ignore (based on what I read anyway).

Thanks. It may have been that i put boot loader in the wrong place as well - not sure why they give you a choice tho. I read that you are suppose to check in the BIOS to see where (the BIOS) wants you to load it. I looked all through the BIOS but couldn't find where my computer wanted them.

I went back to Mint 18 MATE again. That OS can take a lot of abuse. I'll install stuff that's not suppose to be installed on it just to see if i can make it work. Even though it chokes on the programs it always seems to find away to keep working anyways. I can fool it into trying to open it once but after that it know better and just ignores the program. :mrgreen:

I'll go back and play with LMDE 3 when i have more time to spare.

I don't know if those errors have anything to do with Cinnamon, but I know my old laptops don't do well on Cinnamon. With Mint 18 Mate & LMDE 2 Mate on them, they all run well.
