I installed Linux Mint on my laptop. After I login, the screen goes completely dark and there is no output on the screen or anything. Same thing happened with Kubuntu also. Live-USBs worked fine.
Try the following:
When in grub (If you can't see grub hold Shift while booting) select the Linux Mint option and press e. You should see a line that says something like this:
linux /boot/....... quiet splash
Then go at the end of the line and add
linux /boot/....... quiet splash nomodeset
Boot by pressing F10 or Ctrl+X.
If that fixes your problem you can then make it permanent. Open a terminal and type:
sudo nano /etc/default/grub
At the beginning of the file search for:
Once again add the nomodeset option:
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash nomodeset"
Type Ctrl+X then y to save and exit. Update grub:
If you get the error
command not found use
grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg
