Login Loops

My Linux Mint has been stuck in a login loop where putting in my password just brings it back to the login page, and I found at least a couple threads have a solution to this. My problem is when I open the terminal to login through there as the guide has one do, it tells me my login information is incorrect. It asks for "login:" and I put my username, then password and I put in what is DEFINITELY my password, so I think I'm putting something wrong in where it asks for "login". I am very new to Linux and feel I am missing something very simple here but can not find any answers searching around, and after several weeks of failure, I'm posting this. Thanks for reading!

What version of Linux Mint are you running?
And, what desktop environment are you using? Gnome? KDE? XFCE? Mate?
Also, is the system telling you that you are out of disk space?

I was caught in a login loop myself a few months ago and realized that I had the CAPS Lock on.:)

He, that'd be nice if it turns out to be something similar. So it's Cinnamon, and it is not telling me it is out of space.
Ok so your DE is Cinnamon.

What version of Mint are you running?

Are you in a dual boot with another operating system?

Sorry so many questions but your answers will help me to figure out if this is a Grub issue or something else.
