I could revert to Mint 18 but I like everything else about it and I have a lot of stuff installed and working great. I was planning on just waiting for a kernel or driver update to solve my problem, but it is getting frustrating.
PS I am not smart.

Also, I should add that I see many similar posts out there but haven't found one with this precise problem. I think it is related to the graphics driver not being compatible with the kernel. I do not have sufficient knowledge to confidently revert to an earlier kernel.
