Hi!
I do not have a solution, as I have the same problem...
It does not seem to be related to Mint as the same thing happens with Super OS (which is also Ubuntu based).
Mint 5 or 6 have worked well in the past, as other distros (I am writing this using Puppy as my secury fall back!).
I hope some answers can be found soon.
Thank you for your help.

I think that I solved my problem.
First I rebooted under "compatibility mode".
Then, I ended up having problem with the display.
I rebooted again under "recovery mode" and try the entrée for correcting display problems.
And all is back to normal (for the time being...).
I am happy as I am able to reuse Mint again.
