I'm running Elementary OS 0.4.1 “Loki”, runs nicely for an old computer, having some graphical glitches though.

The hole computer frezze for about 8 sec. Then i works for about 5 sec. Just before it starts to work again the screen turns a shade of blue and then back to normal again.
If I dont move the mouse or tuchpad the system works just fine.
What to do?
