Solving freezes with NVIDIA GeForce GPUs
Some NVIDIA GeForce cards don't work well with the open-source driver present in Linux Mint.
If Linux Mint freezes during boot time, use the "nomodeset" boot option as illustrated in the video below:

You can safely try the nolapic option as well. My Dell just won't start without it.
