    Flashing colors when I open my laptop from Sleep(Windows 10)


    I recently installed Ubuntu onto my computer. After installing it, when my laptop goes to sleep (using Windows 10), it never really wakes up. All it does is flicker different colors. For now, I've worked around it by setting "close lid" to simply do nothing and the power button is set to hibernate; I just removed the option of sleeping. Please help!

    Bad video driver. Hibernate in Linux does not work with a lot of machines. Ubuntuforums.org has a lot of threads on this problem, which is easily fixed by letting Linux load the default, which is usually just fglrx.
