You cannot type Windows commands into into Linux and expect anything to happen.
Linux, strangely enough, only accepts Linux commands.

On the first boot of the USB to get you a desktop and try out Mint, did you get any problems?

Did you try to proceed and install it to disk?

It seems possible that your download to your USB may be corrupt.

Posting some information on what graphics card you have would be a starting point.

If you don't remember them that means you can't tell us and so there is no way for us to know what they were, is there?

That is not the best way to solve the problem. Since you are using Linux Mint, a good source of information would be their forums, google can help with that. Mint is based on Ubuntu so Ubuntu forums would be a good source of information. The problem anyone will have trying to help you is not knowing what happened. The more detail you can post about the problem, warning and/or error messages and exactly what you did and the result would be good. It would be a good idea to take notes when you are trying to learn something know just for situations like this.
