Exclamation Stuck on LM splash page Help!


Hi I'm very new to Linux so here's a little back story. I have a Toshiba satellite Which previously had windows 10 installed on it. Well I had some issues and couldn't get my laptop to boot up it was unuseable. So as a last ditch effort I decided to to try and install a different OS so I chose Linux mint. Seemed user friendly. Well I installed from a live usb. Now this worked for a little bit then it kept having more problems. I cannot get it to boot past Lm splash screen. I'm starting to get extremely frustrated. I hope my laptop is not trashed. Please help

When the boot splash appears, press Esc to view the stdout spew. Post what you see and somebody should be able to help.

So here's what I got it's a lot to type so I'll ll do the last 10
*Stopping Mount network filesystems
*Speech-dispatcher disabled; edit /ect/default/speech-dispatcher
*Stopping Mount network filesystems
*Restoring resolve state...
*Stopping System V run level compatibility
*Starting netBIOS name server
*Stopping CPU interupts balancing daemon
*Starting CUPS printing spooler/server

To me that is meaningless. When the messages stop, take a photo and post that.
