if you are using Nvidia card see which version you are using. Install additional drivers
sudo apt install additional-drivers
the package name might be different but you can also find it in the app store
after it was installed check there which drivers you are using for your graphics card. I had such problems with nouveau drivers (open source drivers for Nvidia)
so I installed the latest drivers from Nvidia and everything was resolved
It may be due to the Intel processor. I had a similar experience with a laptop with an Intel processor. What I did was open the terminal and run:
sudo nano /etc/default/grub
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash" to
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash intel_idle.max_cstate=1"
Save it (
Ctrl+O), exit (
sudo update-grub sudo reboot
Hope this helps. And make sure that the OS is updated as well.
