When I start my HP laptop, I see double GRUB window. Sometimes I must start up and shut down the laptop for 10-20 times until it runs correctly.

There is also a problem with shutting down the laptop. When I work on the laptop more than a few minutes, sometimes shut down takes over 5-10 mins. I didn't have this problem since upgraded from Ubuntu 17, only from few weeks (maybe it's because of some Ubuntu update?). It’s really annoying, maybe somebody has the solution?



  • Hi reggae-krk - haven't seen anything like those screenshots before but it looks like some sort of graphical issue. Do you have nVidia graphics on your HP Laptop? – pHeLiOn Aug 14 '18 at 20:53

  • Looks like you've got AMD Radeon graphics. Have a search for AMD Radeon issues and see if anyone else has been having similar problems. – pHeLiOn Aug 14 '18 at 21:07
