I'm using Ubuntu 17.10, my screen keeps on flickering and I can see frame drops. Restarting my PC doesn't solve the problem. I have a HP Pavilion ab032tx, dual booted with Windows 10.The problem does not appear in when using Windows. Thanks in advance!

Some specs about my pc

I have the same issue after kernel update to 4.13.0-43, my laptop is Acer 573g. On Windows (also dual boot) screen totally fine.

I temporarily resolved this problem by booting with previous kernel (4.13.0-41 in my case), and now wait for another kernel update..
