When I open the laptop lid after closing it while running Xubuntu 18.04LTS, the screen is glitched. The glitch itself is hard to explain. When I move my mouse, the screen gets filled up with the color the mouse is pointing at, but only up to the point where the mouse is vertically.

So far, I found only one fix - In Display settings, change the resolution to something different, then restore the resolution back to its initial state.

What alternatives are there?

  • Please click in edit above to the left, and add to your original post: The video driver in use, the make of the laptop, and its model number from the serial number plate on the underside, as this information is very relevant. – K7AAY Nov 1 '18 at 17:52
