Screen freezes after updates to Ubuntu 14.01

Asked by charki90 on 2015-01-22

My screen freezes intermittently, but when I plug in or close then re-open my laptop its fine again. I have changed my graphic drivers which seems to have no effect. The graphics card that i'm using is GeForce GTX 660M. This started to happen after i downloaded the latest software updates.

There is no Ubuntu 14.01. Is it Ubuntu 14.04 LTS or is it Ubuntu 14.10 ?

If you boot an older kernel is it ok?

Sorry its 14.04 and i'll try doing that. It's really annoying because it can sometimes take say a couple of minutes to appear, or up to an hour. Though it never happened before the update, so i'll try booting an older kernel, Thanks!

So i thought i'd give it a few days, and i haven't had a problem since running an older kernel. I'm still not sure what could have effected it in the latest update, but it definitely did something.

Can you help with this problem?
