Reinstalling Linux Mint worked, but then I messed it up by trying to install a nVidia driver. I have a new post up about installing nVidia drivers on Ubuntu which is related to this post except I can boot and actually do stuff. I guess this thread is closed, if I can do that. Also, I've read the README section, it didn't help, Nothing related to my problem. Thanks for trying to help.

All problems lead back to reading the README. You have to know what you are looking for and the relevance of what it is saying. But, I have also found problems that it does not mention.

You close the thread with a button at the top of your page (Solved). You are the only one who can do that.

I don't use Debian, and I don't use any of the mentioned drivers. I use the driver downloaded from the nVidia website, not the ones from APT. I've already added the nomodeset to the file. I will try blacklisting though. Thanks for the reply.
then you need to make sure nouveau is blacklisted and your

blacklist nouveau
