I'm really only wanting them to be a screen and processor, with a bit of BT usage. Everything works except for the screen, which is a bit fundamental...

Do you mean try mint or another Linux distribution, or try Sid?
What about installing the latest Sid kernel alongside the latest stable, and then grub boot into it?

You should probably try the backported kernel instead, you can install the metapackage so you get (delayed) updates.
