I had Ubuntu 18.04 installed on my Lenovo IdeaPad 720s (Intel Core i5-8250U CPU) and everything was working fine. Then I upgraded to Ubuntu 18.10 and now, I'm having a problem where it keeps freezing after login and it becoming entirely unresponsive. Does anybody else has a similar problem?

I really appreciate any help you can provide.

UPDATED: The problem was fixed after reinstalled Ubuntu 18.10. Now everything is working fine but I couldn't figure out what even happened. Thanks!

I ran into this issue as well when installing on my Lenovo YOGA 720 . In my case, i re-installed but this time choosing the "minimal" install rather than the normal one initially offerered.. I then immediately apt updated and set up the graphics card. So far it seems to have fixed the issue.

  • may i know how you set the graphics card ? – Harsh Gundecha Jun 5 '19 at 5:11
  • To update, i just re-installed afresh when the new Ubuntu 19.04 came out and did not have to do anything for the graphics card to work. – yuvilio Jun 7 '19 at 0:26
  • did you also checked the option that states install additional proprietary driver at the step just before selecting partition while installing ? – Harsh Gundecha Jun 7 '19 at 6:28
  • @HarshGundecha , yep, I always opt for installing additional proprietary drivers,and i carry out the install online (adding wifi) so I get the latest packages. When I launch the Software Updater app, it says I'm Using NVIDIA driver metapackage from nvidia-driver-418 (proprietary, tested). – yuvilio Jun 11 '19 at 23:18
  • tired that too that even on mint 19 but no luck, seems that AMD is the issue here, would have been better if i had NVIDIA – Harsh Gundecha Jun 12 '19 at 5:15
