    Angry Black Log-in Screen on Linux Mint Cinnamon 64 Bit [N00B]


    SOLVED NO NEED TO READ
    Hi! I've installed Linux Mint 14 Cinnamon 64 Bit this morning, I love it, but I've got a really annoying problem! When I start up my computer on Linux Mint, I get a black log-in screen, I only get the log-in screen if I shut down the computer using the start button, and start it up again, so I need to try two times every time I want to start up my computer?!? I'm sure there's something wrong. I've been googling this problem for this problem a LOT, and if I use the nomodeset, I get really bad screen resolution and the computer is almost so slow that I can't use it, I love Linux so I'll try (almost) everything to get it work, thank you.

    The scary part is that when I get the black screen I can type my username and my password and hear the log in sound, so it must be something with either the screen or my graphics card, an ATI Radeon HD 6320M card.


    And yes! I've tried Ubuntu too with Wubi, and I also get a black screen there (first time trying to start up)

    EDIT: Ups, should've posted this in the newbie section, hope someone can help anyways.

    Why, WHY?!?!? EVERY time I post something in a forum, I fix it two minutes later!!! Wow, anyways, it's fixed now.
    EDIT: Btw. how can I put the solved mark on my thread?

    Why? Probably some variation of this.

    You can use the thread tools above the first post to mark your thread solved. This will close the thread to further posts. If you don't mind me asking, what was your solution?
    What do we want?
    Time machines!

    When do we want 'em?
    Doesn't really matter does it!?

    For those who come along later with the same problem, could you post your solution?
