I have problem with ubuntu 16.04 on MSI GE62 6QD laptop.
CPU i7-6700HQ GPU1 Intel HD 530 GPU2 NVidia GeForce GTX 960m

I don't know what to do and I WONT give up and back to Windows. Please, anyone can help me? I just want to use linux on new laptop..
EDIT: After downgrade to kernel 4.4.0 at least I can shutdown/reboot system and
