Can't Install Linux Mint 19.2 on my Laptop
#1
Okay so I have a 2016 Asus X540SA 15.6 inch Laptop with 4GB of RAM and a Quad Core CPU and I seem to can't install anything newer than

- Kernels: 4.13+
- Ubuntu Base: 18.04

At that it freezes upon wake after Sleep/Hibernation and I tried "nomodeset" but it renders my touchpad useless and I get low resolution. I know what's going
on but its weird plus ever since the Spectre & Meltdown patches, my Laptop can't stand the newer kernels/distros (IT LOCKS UP SOLID) such as Linux Mint 19.2... Linux Mint 19.1 runs on my All-in-One Desktop without major issues but my Laptop is on LM 18.3 -- I tried a BIOS Update on my Laptop and no dice.

nomodeset does not work -- it depends on the BIOS version cause my AIO runs the latest kernels no issue there so its gotta be a BIOS issue then.
