[lubuntu] glitchy graphics and lines on screen, intermittent


HOME ยป Ubuntu
I've recently updated from 15.04 to 15.10, and since then I will
get these glitches and lines across the screen intermittently. Very
occasionally (and I haven't worked out how to reliably replicate this)
the screen will go black for a second then the entire screen will be
garbled. Most of the time I'll open an application and it'll mess up
like in the screenshots attached below.

I have installed ubuntu netbook edition on my friend's Gateway ZA8. We
put 9.10 on initially, but then tried to upgrade. someone unplugged
the computer while it was upgrading and it wouldn't start when it was
finished, so I did a fresh install from USB.
So right now I am
using ubuntu netbook edition 10.04 lucid
Anyway, now I have
horizontal bars of greyish white pixels flashing at seemingly random
heights and times. I can still use the computer, but it is really
annoying. What can be done to configure my graphics system so that it
will stop? lspci is listed below, but I don't know what do do with the
info.

This is the first time I have install linux as the only OS on a
computer. Apart form virtual box.
I have a HP e-Vectra, Pentium
III (Designed for Windows 2000, Windows NT 4.0)
I have installed
Lubuntu.
My problem is that when i boot the computer. It looks
like it should be loading the OS the screen, but is made up from black
and white bars.
I can just about see where the Lubuntu text would
be and the loading "dots".
I would like to see if there
was a fix to this problem.
Here is some information that might
help you:

Hi, I upgraded to 11.10 Oneiric on my Acer Aspire One 522 netbook
back in Oct 2011 and it ran OK for 11 months until Sept 2012 when it
started to experience intermittent purple screen hangs during
booting.
So for the last 4 months, sometimes I go from grub to
log-in successfully and there's no problem, but other times I see
Oneiric loading normally for about 21 seconds after grub, then a
couple of black and white screen flashes, followed by a purple
screen totally unresponsive hang that I can only clear with a power
down. I've tried various remedies mentioned in other threads like
"F6" and "Cntl-Alt-F1" to "Cntl-Alt-F6"
and "Cntl-Alt

Hello everyone, ):P
I have had two machines with the same
problem. At first I thought it was the unusual aspect ratio of the
monitor(s) 5:4 (1280 x1024) but this seems to be irrelevant now as the
displays are rock solid until the graphics card(s) are changed. />My parents machine with Ubuntu 12.04 x64, did have an ATI X300SE
card that I swapped for a NVidia GE210 last year. Pretty much straight
away it had Intermittent blanking problems.
It can be fixed by
changing resolution (until system updates need doing)
My own
machine is running Ubuntu Studio 12.04 with the same model of monitor
as my parents. With virtually identical hardware.

First time I'm using Linux, so pardon me if this turns out to be too
obvious. I also rarely post on any kinds of forums but I've tried
googling the hell out of my problem to no avail.
Alright, now
about the issue I'm having.
At first, after I installed ubuntu
(12.10) for the very first time, I had all kinds of weird graphics
artifacts and glitches. Sometimes I couldn't login, it would just loop
me back to the login screen all the time. If I somehow managed to log
in (Don't ask, I can't replice the log in thing now, no idea how I got
it), what I got was a completely corrupted screen. It's like the
desktop started loading - I could see the whole sidebar thing, but cli
