    Does this laptop have dual GPUs? When I looked this up yesterday, all that I found showed that it did not have an Nvidia GPU in it.

    Redalien0304; Wonder of wonders -

    It is Nvidia graphics

    Is the Nvidia module fully installed :

    What shows - for diagnostic purposes:
    Code:
    sudo lshw -C display
    dpkg -l | grep -i nvidia
    lsmod | grep nvidia
    cat /var/log/gpu-manager.log
    maybe not-so-yes

    No sudo kshw -C display[sudo] password for craig:
    sudo: kshw: command not found ?
    I assume yo meant sudo lshw -C Display ?

    sudo lshw -C display

    Re: Ubuntu 18.04 nvidia G98M [Quadro NVS 160M] Screen Flicker

    Redalien0304; Well !

    Nvidia recommends the 390 version driver for that NVS card:
    https://www.nvidia.com/Download/driv...x/137276/en-us

    I do suggest a purge of the 340 driver:
    Reboot and insure that "secure boot" is disabled in bios; then once more at the desktop run:
    Code:
    sudo apt remove --purge nvidia-*
    and make sure that the nvidia config file(s) do not exist now:
    Code:
    ls -al /etc/X11/xorg.conf /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/*.conf
    If needed a new file will be generated.

    And the tried and true:
    Code:
    sudo apt update
    sudo apt upgrade
    sudo ubuntu-drivers autoinstall
    Reboot once more to see the effect.

    maybe yes
