I have been trying to install Ubuntu 16.10 or 18.04 (would prefer 18.04 as it will end up having longer LTS). The issue has been the screen tearing that accompanies the Linux System after install. I have attached a video showing the display issues.
The tearing only starts once I've booted into Ubuntu; the OS selection menu is perfectly fine.
Model: Lenovo Ideapad 720S 13IKB CPU: Intel 8550U RAM: 8GB Display: 4K
I've tried adding the xorg config files, but that has led to nothing, unfortunately.
I've tried altering the default resolution and refresh rates as well, but same results.
I have updated the BIOS on my laptop using the Lenovo Update tools in Windows.
I'm at a loss, any ideas?
