Plasma crashes and restarts every few minutes on Dell Inspiron 9400

This is an annoying flicker which started when I upgraded to Chimaera. I suspect I need to tweak X configuration somewhere for this older hardware, but can't find a configuration file. Any clues would be welcome. Inxi output below.
