Linux Mint 18.3 freezes on login

Linux Mint 18.3 freezes on login:

I just made a fresh install of Linux Mint 18.3 KDE in an ASUS UX550VD machine. After installation, the login screen pops up. After inserting my password, it freezes – the login screen is still there, but the cursor disappear and nothing seems to happen. This problem did not arise in my previous Linux Mint 18.2 KDE install.

In case it’s useful – I remember this machine hanged up with the 4.10 kernel on the previous 18.2 KDE install. Latest kernel (4.15) worked correctly in that install.

Could you please let me know how to fix this?
