My desktop screen goes fully black for a few seconds before coming back on in a few seconds. The problem increases in frequency when I have multiple softwares open, and the duration of the blackout increases when I have code running.

I have looked at this, but I do not use Chrome at all. (I have Firefox open almost all the time.) Is there any way to solve this problem?

System info: 3.8 GB RAM intel i5 quad core processor (3.20 Ghz x 4) intel HD Graphics 530 (Skylake GT2) x86/MMX/SSE2 ubuntu 16.04 LTS (32 bit)

  • Your link is about screen "flickering" but your problem is more like screen "resetting". It takes a couple seconds when my system shuts off one monitor and moves all open windows to the other open monitor. So that would be more of a clue than your link I think. – WinEunuuchs2Unix Apr 6 '18 at 10:57
