  • Linux Lite: 3.8 32bit

  • CPU: Pentium T4200

  • MEMORY: 3Gb

  • VIDEO CARD: Intel Mobile Series 4 Chipset Integrated
Working with old cards can be a gamble.
A quick web search lists the model to 2010, I may be even older.
It seemed to work fine on Ubuntu 14.04, Kernal 3.x
Since 16.04 kernel 4.x, they are mention of some problems, maybe that have not been completely fixed since then.
Maybe it worked better in some kernels... or maybe the card is just old and flaky.

Still, nice to know you found the source of the issue. ;)  We'll see you in the forums! \( " )/

Well, I don't think the kernel is the issue because before installing Linux Lite, there was Windows 7 installed on the computer (Windows 7 was pre-installed). This problem also came when Windows 7 was installed. After some time, the computer was constantly being bombarded with Blue Screens of Death and we decided to shift to Linux. So, the card is just old and flaky.
