This link shows several possible solutions for Ubuntu and nVidia combinations that make the splash screen go blank. I think you're using Mint, which is Ubuntu-based, so one of these might solve your issue too.

Cheers!

Yer a sad man, Paul ... fancy having lived in Bermuda and NOT loving fish.

Actually, regarding splash screen or not:

In all of my Distros, I go not.

In the Debian-based it is a simple matter of going into /etc/default/grub and changing the line which says "quiet splash" to "noquiet nosplash", then save and exit. Run

Code:
sudo update-grub
and then reboot.

That way, you get to see what is happening at startup, and troubleshoot errors and warnings.

Works with different families as well eg RPM, Arch, Gentoo &c. You may just have to use the full command after changing the grub file.

update-grub is a "stub" for

Code:
grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg
... and in the case of the RPMs eg Fedora, it may be

grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg

... note highlighting.

Works for me

Sorry for the late reply...i didnt receive any emails about the replies received.......

Thanks Wiz......but no go.

I reboot after implementing the 'noquiet
nosplash', .....saving etc,,,,and running sudo update-grub.......

....and still get a longgg blank screen, until the speakers lights show sign of life...then the 'hdmi' signal/sign shows up on one monitor, and the other monitor turns itself on........10 seconds or so later I have desktops loaded on both monitors.

pic attached of the CHANGED grub folder...
