I'm trying to install Linux to dual-boot with Windows on my 2016 Razer Blade Stealth. However I'm running into issues with every single distro I've tried. The only distros I've actually been able to successfully install are ubuntu variations (Ubuntu LTS 16.04 and Lubuntu 16.10). However with both of those variations I get this awful screen flickering issue (click the link to see a video of it).
A peculiar thing about the issue is that the screen does not flicker at all when my finger is on the trackpad (this is demonstrated in the video). Or when I'm running ubuntu and I have a secondary monitor connected. Also I do not experience this issue at all when running Windows.

I believe it has something to do with the graphics drivers. I have Intel HD Graphics 620. I looked up downloads for drivers but the Intel site said that most distributions come pre-installed with intel graphics drivers. There were several packages I could install but I'm pretty new to Linux and I wasn't sure which package to download or how to use it.
Any advice would be much appreciated. Thank you.
