Dont tell me my hardware is at fault because it's not.
Must be a software Problem. I ditched elementary OS today cause it failed to boot after installing some 32 bit libraries on 64bit OS.

Arch, dont look back.

I went that route.. but after having to recompile nautilus, and various other programs as they would stop working.. having to re-install because of changes to the arch base.. I decided to go with Debian wheezy.. and I haven't looked back.

OpenSUSE, FTW!!!

 

Never really cared for Mint and Debian based distros.

I believe Debian is way easier. apt-get is a lot more fun and quicker, honestly.

I've found Cinnamon and Mate both to be buggy. Their XFCE version is nice but I don't like some of the choices they make. Try a Ubuntu LTS verison, and just add a PPA for whatever you want (you can add the Elementary desktop if you like). 

 

My only experience with Arch is through Manjaro and I wasn't impressed.

Try re-downing the ISO and try again. Something is definitely not right with your setup.
