According to network sources, Linux version 5.19.12 can disable on a hardware level the display of laptops that operate on Intel processors. The problem is caused by an error in the graphic driver, which results in delays in powering on the display and incorrect lighting, which can cause physical damage to the display.
According to the available data, the problem is reflected in the brightness of the high-frequency display. In the case of long-term operation of the screen, it will simply become inoperable. This is one of the few cases where an upgrade of the non-dispersive software can physically harm the components of the computer. According to the source, the problem affects all Intel processor laptops in which the displays are directly connected to the built-in graphics.
Fortunately, the Linux community has responded quickly to the problem. An update has already been released for the Linux core, in which all problems found in the graphic driver have been resolved. The Linux core of version 5.19.13 is already available for download. Those who have not yet established the problem update are advised to refrain from doing so.
