I bought Lenovo ThinkCentre M710q and installed Ubuntu 18.04 on it. During playing Youtube videos, Ubuntu freezed suddenly and then I have to restart computer manually. It happens every time during playing Youtube videos.
The display resolution is:

DP-2 connected primary 2560x1440+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 597mm x 336mm
   2560x1440     59.95*+

and graphics card is:

I was curious and installed Windows 10 on the computer with following driver:

and I can play several Youtube videos simultaneously. It never crashed.

Does it exist a suitable Intel HD Graphics 530 driver for Ubuntu 18.04? Or what do I have to do?

  • Can you please refer to askubuntu.com/a/38369/175814 and add the content of the recommended log files (or links to it if they're too long) to your question? In a vanilla Ubuntu 18.04 setup your display manager would be GDM. – David Foerster Jun 6 '18 at 21:48
  • I updated the kernel of linux to 4.17 and it seems that it does not crashed anymore. But I will post the log anyway. – zero_coding Jun 7 '18 at 5:38

In linux, the drivers for the integrated graphics is included in the kernel. However, it seems linux drivers tend to cause more issues than in Windows.

I see two possible solutions:

  1. In Google Chrome(I'm assuming) settings, disable hardware acceleration.
  2. try downgrading/upgrading the linux kernel
