I installed Linux Mint 18.3 Cinnamon last night and had couple of little errors during install about files not matching or something so clicked retry and then seemed fine as logged in and then shut down and removed the usb stick and this morning I turn it on and it just loads a black screen with the white cursor line flashing

I tried installing again on a hard drive that I know works and it came up installer crashed, There must be a issue with the PC itself or bit of hardware. I think the RAM is ok as it recognises it in the BIOS. I am just trying again now, if it don't work I give up as totally out of ideas with it

Your flash drive could be bad. I just went through a couple of bad flash drives - I couldn't get Linux Live to work on either of them, no matter what I did, even though it told me that the process of making the Linux Live flash drive was successful.

I've got some others to try, it's currently copying the files at the mo, if it fails again. I'll try another USB stick

Another thing: Some computers are more capable of dealing with a flash drive that is going bad. The flash drives I spoke of worked fine in one of my computers, but failed in the other.

ahh ok so it could be the flash drive going. I'll try another now as it has just failed saying the file did not match the source copy on the CD/DVD but am using the flash drive in the back of the PC

The partition scheme and target system type I am using in Rufus is MBR partition scheme for BIOS or UEFI

Is that the right one to use?
