Screen flickering

I just installed Endeavor, everything was fine.
I turned off pc and after some time i switch it on, now i see my screen is flickering.

More precisely the text on the screeen is vibrating.

I just open a video, it was playing fine and the subtitles are also fine.

Please help.

Welcome aboard! :partying_face:

It’s hard to tell without any info…please share some logs so people could help :wink:

Start with:

inxi -Faz --no-host

and right after that happens

journalctl -p3 -xb

I posted them below

Did you try removing xf86-video-intel?

reboot

I don’t know how to do anything.

You have to use pacman commands.

sudo pacman -R xf86-video-intel

Then reboot after removing.
