    I put Mint Mate 18.2 on my old celeron laptop with an intel express 4 chipset.

    When scrolling down webpages, it's like vsync isn't turned on and black rectangles randomly appear and flicker in and out.

    I've looked for any additional drivers but intel's site states that the ones in the linux distributions are the only ones available.

    Is this correct?
