Mint 13 requires a different method:

On the boot menu press e-key and edit the boot parameters, removing ro quiet splash and adding rw single. F10 key boots you to the single mode.

In the single mode make commands

Xorg -configure
cp /root/xorg.conf.new /etc/X11/xorg.conf
reboot

One more method:

1. Press Ctrl Alt F2 on the login screen
2. Login
3. Run command sudo killall Xorg
4. Run commands sudo Xorg -configure
sudo cp /root/xorg.conf.new /etc/X11/xorg.conf
sudo reboot

A basic /etc/X11/xorg.conf file for a difficult computer. If this does not work, delete it using command

sudo rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf
