We can't do much with your question since we're mising a lot of info here:

- Which version of Mint are you using?
- What type/model graphic card do yo have?
- post the output of this terminal commands here:

Code: Select all

inxi -G


Without those information we cannot help you further, we don't have a crystal ball here to look in and find the right answers :wink:

Boot with the live-cd and mount your (internal) drive and move/copy everything to a USB stick.

But what did you do when you were trying to update your graphic drivers??
