  • Add your system graphic information, are you using nvidia? didd you installed any specific driver for your graphic card from additional drivers, etc? – Ravexina Apr 18 '17 at 8:55
  • Yes i use nvidia graphics drivers. But I installed them before updating to 17.04. – Kishlay Kumar Apr 18 '17 at 9:39

  • Okay! I hadn't seen this. But the reinstall solution worked. Thanks for the help. – Kishlay Kumar Apr 18 '17 at 19:43

There is an issue with the nvidia driver and kernel 4.10.

I resolved by installing recently released driver 381.09

sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa
sudo apt update
sudo apt install nvidia-381

    381.09 seems to fix the problem for me too. – Rick-777 Apr 23 '17 at 19:02
