Christian, sorry, I slackened for the last months, hoping someone would see this bug, upstream. They didn't. I filed it yesterday. Finally, I hope somebody sees it and starts working on it. Fingers crossed.

Since then, one is working fine while the other shows mainly an ever disappearing screen and flickering. I have asked here: https://askubuntu.com/questions/947233/i-upgraded-from-kubuntu-14-04-lts-to-16-04-lts-and-now-my-screen-shows-up-and-di?noredirect=1#comment1506995_947233 I also found I am not the only one: https://askubuntu.com/questions/927407/flickering-screen-with-intel-graphics-on-ubuntu-17-04?noredirect=1#comment1507937_927407 The latter has tried pretty much that could be tried already, to no avail. I think that I can help with this problem, since my two T410s are identical in hard- and software, including BIOS, except that one is a type 2924 (with NVIDIA-card, though disabled in the BIOS), and the other one is a 2904 (without NVIDIA card). I have checked for differences at boot time and found DMAR as major difference: T410s, 2924: [ 0.335616] DMAR: Disabling batched IOTLB flush on Ironlake T410s, 2904: [ 0.355681] DMAR: BIOS has allocated no shadow GTT; disabling IOMMU for graphics Should this be initially at the root of the problem, I'd consider the kernel package as responsible, therefore I marked it as above. The outputs of lspci -k | grep -EA3 'VGA|3D|Display' are identical to the point.
