The link you gave doesn't really tie down which CPU you have or whether it supports PAEI think the best bet is to create a Peppermint 6 or 7 LiveUSB/LiveDVD and see if it'll boot from itDo you have another PC (not chromebook) on which we can create a LiveUSB stick .. and is this PC Linux or Windows ?
I do not understand why this chap installed this operating system. I am running mint 17.3 mate 64bit on a similar laptop with no problems. You should be able to download a newer version of mint say mint 17 I suggest version 17 with support until 2019 (lightest LTS version) https://www.linuxmint.com/edition.php?id=160Once you have downloaded the new operating system there should be a program in Applications to create a live USB. This can be used to boot the troublesome laptop and if required install mint.

mintstick -m format
mintstick -m iso
If you're going to use that same USB stick as the installation media, you'll need to copy the ISO's off it and onto say the desktop of your Mint PC (because you're going to be overwriting the USB stick0.If you've installed mintstick but cannot find the 2 utilities in the menu, you can start them with these commandsUSB Stick FormatterCode: [Select]mintstick -m formatUSB Image WriterCode: [Select]mintstick -m iso
dpkg -l | grep mintstick
