Bug Description

I have a DELL PA-10 wtih GM965 intel graphic card. It couldn't boot with 4.15 kernel and I have to use 4.4.0. I'm using the default driver, I didn't find an other.

The computer boot faster aplying this fix but I continue to have a problem with the suspension. After after a suspension the screen blink between two kind of blank screen and never start.
Is there a solution for that?
