Screen flicker


After two days use of Endeavour without issue (I’m new to this OS) my external screen a Philips 273V5 has developed a screen flicker. I did a little basic checking. Its set to 60Hz and works with my other laptop running Linux Mint Debian Edition flawlessly. My Endeavour laptop works well with the laptops screen but the minute you connect it to the Philips things now go pear shaped. Any help would be much appreciated.

Here’ some output:

Hi and welcome to EnOS’ community @SRK

Please consider editing your post by clicking on the pencil icon and format the posted output.

Did what you suggested but not sure if this is made things more or less legible?

If you would have left out of the formatting your own text then yes.
Just format any terminal output or code you post.

Np

Try uninstalling xf86-video-intel and run on the kernel module
