Flickering after update

Hi Guys

My install of Ubuntu 17.10 was working perfectly on my HP Pavilion g7 until I did a update, then the screen started flickering. It is so bad that it is annoying to look at. As a temporary workaround I switched the display from the newer Wayland back to XORG and that seems to have stopped the flickering but I would like to use the newer Wayland display if that is possible. Has anyone else had this problem and found a way to fix it without reverting back to the old display drivers?

MY SPECS:
  • HP Pavilion g7
  • Ubuntu 17.10
  • Gnome Desktop
