Intel driver issue Ubuntu 18.04


Hi there

New here and looking for some advice please.

I think I might have a problem with my Intel graphics drivers on my Dell desktop, but I don't know for sure. Basically, for the first three or four attempts at booting up, the desktop environment either fails to load, or loads very slowly and then the screen will go black and then the CPU fan goes nuts. I then have to power down using the power button and repeat this process until eventually the desktop will load normally and it all stabilises.

Output from sudo lshw -c video:

I have tried sudo ubuntu-drivers devices but this returns nothing!


Could anyone tell me if this looks okay or, if not, what I can do to remedy it?


Many thanks in advance

It might also be an idea to post the contents of /var/log/Xorg.0.log as well - but please use CODE tags when doing so. Check my posting signature below if you're not sure how to use CODE tags.

Incidentally, when looking for this log file, I noticed there is a log file called /var/log/Xorg.0.log.old which is classified as a backup file and showing that it was modified today. There are some entries in this log which relate to monitor and display settings - would it be helpful to post this as well?

Thanks

Mick

X does create a new log each time you start the graphical environment, and therefore will rename the old log with the .old file extension, this is quite normal. Unless you saw lines in the old log with "EE" at the beginning of them, then I don't think it will tell us anything new.

Your system appears to be using the modesetting DDX 2D driver. So I wonder what kernel driver it's using, post the results of the following command;

Code:
lspci -nnk | grep -A3 -i VGA

Okay thanks for explaining that. I did check and I can't see any lines with "EE" at the beginning...

This is the output from the command

Code:
 lspci -nnk | grep -A3 -i VGA:

The drivers you have, both the DDX and kernel drivers seem to be the correct drivers for your graphics controller, and I can't see anything that stands out in your X log.

While you could try installing the xorg-video-intel package (this package may have a slightly different name depending on your distribution) for the non-modesetting DDX driver, from my research, and given your graphics controller, it doesn't seem to be recommended. You can try what's suggested here, and see if that fixes it - I would try that first before installing the non-modesetting driver mentioned before.

I'm flying a little blind here since my machine has NVIDIA graphics, not Intel graphics (I could have bought an i3 processor to use it's Intel graphics, but I wanted a PCIe add-in card instead).

This thing seems to be 13 years old.
Don't expect much.
Is 1024x768 the native resolution of your monitor hardware?
It all seems a little too matured for Ubuntu.
Try MX Linux.

Also try booting with 'nomodeset'. Search the web on how to accomplish that.

..

So maybe I'm barking up the wrong tree and this isn't driver related at all. There are a couple of other glitches that may or may not be related. For example, since this issue began, the logins.json file in .mozilla seems to become corrupted (actually wiped) if I don't get to the PC in time to power down whilst the CPU is 'apparently' going into meltdown, so I have lost all of my stored pw's in firefox several times (luckily I have a back up). Also, I cannot get the desktop to go into suspend mode after a specified period of inactivity - does anyone think this could be part of the issue? Maybe I should just ditch my current version of Ubuntu and install something else as suggested by ondoho, or maybe I could splash out on a newer PC ?

I guess it's up to you what you want to do. I did notice that the hardware is quite old, so either ondoho's suggestion or indeed buying a new machine might be your best options.

Personally, if you have the money to buy a more modern machine, then that's probably what I'd do if I wanted to run something like Ubuntu. Just make sure that it's something that's been around for at least 6 to 12 months though. Because if it's too new, you might have the opposite problem and have to wait for drivers to catch up.

Okay well here's a thing. I edited and updated the grub file as directed in the article linked above. When I booted up the screen resolution was wrong but the desktop loaded and was stable. I then went back into grub, reinstated it to its original configuration (i.e. "quiet splash" instead of "nomodeset") and then rebooted once more. I now have a stable desktop with none of the previous issues so it seems to have fixed whatever was causing the instability. It does seem to take a dog's age to load but I can live with that.

Thanks again for all of your help with this - the old PC lives to fight another day
