I have just installed Debian Jessie xfce 4.10 on a laptop with Intel hd graphics 4000 and it overheats even while watching videos, causing sudden shutdown of the system. While running Windows everything works well, so I think the problem is caused by default Debian's graphic driver. I can't find a proper one for Debian. Where can I get it and how to reinstall it correctly?


You could try enabling the backports repository, and then installing a linux-image-amd64 kernel from the 4.X series. You'll probably also need to get firmware-linux-nonfreefrom there.

Once/If the backports repository is enabled, you can:

apt-get install -t jessie-backports linux-image-amd64 firmware-linux-nonfree

Backports-Wiki, and further instructions
