Random screen freezes on Ubuntu- Mint (new install)


Hi Guys, thanks for reading.

Today I installed Ubuntu-Mint on my daughter's Lenovo laptop and the system locks up occasionally, including the keyboard which is a drag since I can't get to a TTY. I can't see anything in the log files to explain it, but I may be missing something. It's using Intel graphics which is, from what I've read, pretty much plug and play these days. Where should I start troubleshooting?

I found a bug report here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...l/+bug/1510970. I'm trying the workaround described in comment 40. Keep your fingers crossed.

oh, the accel method.
you might also want to look at what archwiki has to say on intel drivers:

good luck, hopefully you can convince your daughter!
