This question already has an answer here:

I'm using Lubuntu 16.04, I like this SO, but I'm feeling that my system is not working fine. My processor is a Intel(R) Celeron(R) CPU N2930 @ 1.83GHz I Updated my BIOS and my system is working better (Motherboard: X451MA), but not so good.

I think that is my graphic card driver. Because when I try to play a video it freeze and then start from the point that the video stopped and the reproduction is not so good. The quality isn't good even if I try to watch a 720p video.

I did some tests and here is the results:

Do I need to download this microcode? how to install it? https://downloadcenter.intel.com/pt-br/download/26925/Arquivo-de-dados-de-micro-c-digo-de-processador-para-Linux-?product=81073

I think that my graphic board is not Ok, Intel Graphics is not compatible with my hardware.

I tried to disable hardware acceleration, but I can't watch videos in full screen. Also, I can't install Intel Graphics because my video card is not compatible with the software.

FIXED

I created a xorg configuration with this command line in terminal

sudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf

and put this

Section "Device"
       Identifier "Intel Graphics"
       Driver     "intel"
       Option     "NoAccel"   "uxa"
       Option     "DRI"       "False"
       Option     "TearFree"  "true"
    EndSection

Thank you guys. Thank you @heynnema

    Hello, I think that my graphic card is not working so well, I'm using lubuntu around 2 weeks. I need to know how to make it work fine. thanks. – Leandro Rodrigues Jul 29 '17 at 13:34
  • that's good now you can edit your question and put it right before "That's all guys. I hope that you can help me, Thanks!". – Tooniis Jul 29 '17 at 15:31
  • but without "hello" obviously – Tooniis Jul 29 '17 at 15:32

    You need to tell us what the symptom is, not what you think the problem is. ie: screen distorts, or screen goes black, or system won't boot, etc. – heynnema Jul 29 '17 at 15:40

  • Assure that intel-microcode is installed (I just noticed that you already have this installed.)

In terminal...

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install intel-microcode
reboot
  • Thank you, Heynnema, I did this and this message appeared: intel-microcode is already the newest version (3.20151106.1). – Leandro Rodrigues Jul 29 '17 at 16:38
  • I edited the GRUB as suggested in the link. But the problem continue, I think that my video card isn't working fine. Many thanks. – Leandro Rodrigues Jul 29 '17 at 16:45
