I have a ubuntu 12.04 LTS installed on my HP Compaq 420 laptop. My problem is that everytime I reach the log-in screen, the screen flickers heavily and also after I have entered my username and password. I have an Intel gm45 video driver. I also have this kind of problem in other kinds distro (Fedora 17 , Opensuse , Ubuntu 12.10 and other variants of ubuntu which is based on ubuntu 12.04 +). I have searched across the net to find some solution but I fail. Any ideas?
