RBS 13" (2017) Random flickering && crashing

  1. I have ubuntu 16 installed on dual boot and for some reason my machine will always freeze during my session and on some occasions even fail to boot from bios or recovery. Has anyone else had a similar issue or knows any solutions? Thanks

  3. I am just curious, what are the issues you have with the external monitor? (I have a RBS 8550U)
    The instructions you gave also fixed all my flickering issues, except on the HDMI out.
    I tried with several monitors and they all have the same problem. The monitor connected to the HDMI out flickers once in a while. The screen goes black and turns back ON after 1 or 2 seconds. This happens randomly but I would say, on average, about once every 5 min.
    I do not have this problem if I connect the same external monitor to the USB-C (through a docking station). I have a dual boot with Windows 10, and this issue is definitely specific to linux.

    I have the same problem with the external screen. It goes black for 1-2 seconds randomly. Through USB-C connector it works well. It seems that disconnecting it from the wall plug fix it. But I can't work like that.
