More Info Please!

I'm happy to help, but your questions is incredibly general, you should provide MUCH more information in regards to:
- Specifications of the target machine
- Distribution of Linux Mint (Cinamon, MATE, KDE, Xfce etc.), version: 17.x.x?, Kernel version 3.x (probably...)
- What you would actually like help solving... What is the problem, be more specific. (From your mention of "Software Rendering Mode" I 'assume' you would like some help with regards to graphics drivers...?)

Hi redjeepjo...

Welcome to the forum

If possible, along with what chrisoman has requested, could you post a screenshot or in some way post the information from this command (using the terminal)...

Code:
lspci -nnk
Thanks!

When you have the time run this command so we can find out what WiFi card you have.
Unless your internet connection is wired?

It could be that all you need is to install a driver for your wifi card.

Code:
lspci | grep -i network
Another thing you can try is go into "Driver Manager" and update or install "fglrx-updates".
It worked for me:-

Hi...

We still need the information we requested to be able to help you. Swapping the hard drive is not going to fix this problem as it is not responsible for your graphics or for getting you on the internet.

Regards...

To get out of Software Rendering Mode......
Try going into "Driver Manager" and update or click on install "fglrx-updates"

Are you using Cinnamon? Mate? or KDE?

Post the output of lspci -nnk and the output of lspci | grep -i network

Also post the output of lspci | grep -i VGA
