Hi.

I'm running Debian since last week. I don't know why but my screen behaves strangely and I can't find a reason.. Only reboot helps. Have any ideas?

Info:

  • Does that happen with other screens too? Or, using the same screen, does the same happen with different computers/gfx_cards? – Alex Stragies Jan 13 '18 at 13:52
  • I don't know. This is a notebook. I can't check it. But when i had Windows something like that didn't happen. – aipek Jan 13 '18 at 14:31
  • Try USB live-booting another distro, older kernel, or newer kernel? – Alex Stragies Jan 13 '18 at 15:27

Downgrade to 4.9.0-3 solves the problem.
