We need more details. Can you log in in a virtual console? Press in the login window ctrl-alt-F1, enter your username, than the password. Note, that you will get no visual feedback for the password, type it blindly and press the Enter key afterwards. Is this successful? Press ctrl-d, than alt-left to get back to the login window.

We also need to know which version of Mint and which desktop environment you use.

Yeah, this is way, too vague. Do you get an error message? If so, what is it? Also, what Cosmo said.
