Toshiba Driver Problems - Anybody dealt with this first-hand?

L775D-S7340 running Mint 10. Occasionally, the keyboard freezes on startup, once I arrive at the Login. I power down, remove the battery and hold power for 60 sec, which resets it. And is getting pretty annoying. Either I need to replace fglrx (existing driver) or add something to the grub menu, according to what I've found online. Every solution I can look up seems to either be missing steps, or commands, or, well, who cares after those two. Please keep answers nice and ultra-simple for me. I'm borderline computer literate, but a complete linux noob.

Alright, you've found the same results I have in google. Now - how do I edit grub, and where specifically does this line go? Also, what I've found often has add'l commands/modifiers and I need to know which to use.

Please be specific - if you don't know what you're talking about, I don't need help using google. I've been doing that for months, and it sucks. I'm looking for someone who has Actually Fixed This.

It is expected that u know to write this parameter at the time of booting.
Hopefully this will help to overcome ur probs.
