Create an /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d , folder. Then inside this folder create
a file with name 20-intel.conf
Inside this file add the following content
Identifier "Intel Graphics"
Option "AccelMethod" "uxa"
Save the file.
Remove any xorg.conf file you have created earlier
sudo rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Reboot your PC.
See if this worked
cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep -i uxa
