I actually figured out what the problem was. It finally spat out an error code, so at least I had something to troubleshoot. Turns out that it was the GPU driver. All is gravy now.
To answer your question though, there literally isn't anything else to describe. That's exactly what happened. I would log in and the system would lock up immediately. Keyboard and mouse would become unresponsive, then my monitor would turn off because no signal was being found. As for versions, it was Ub 13.04 x64 and Mint 15 x64 though.
