I have a screen flickering since my first Ubuntu 16.04.4 LTS installation and tried everything mentioned in this post: Flickering screen with Intel graphics on Ubuntu 17.04
and setting it to
nomodeset helps. My problem is that if i set it to
nomodeset my second screen, connected via HDMI isn't recognized.
If i don't set
nomodeset, HDMI is recognized and it does not flicker on the HDMI screen, just on my laptop screen.
I would love to use both screens!
this is my
lshw -C video
