Yoga 710-15IKB Flickering White

Question: Yoga 710-15IKB Flickering White

I started having a problem with my screen when I tried to install a program called Monosnap. At first my computer screen was completely white and I had a hard time seeing anything. I uninstalled the program and it got a little better. Virus scans said I didn't catch anything. I reset to my previous Windows back up point and it got a little better. It still had like a white film over the screen with like a halo of pure color around the edges. Then I reinstalled the display driver and that fixed the problem with the permanent white film over everything, except now it randomly flickers completely white, with verticle lines. I've included a picture.

I've bought Yoga 510 about 2 weeks ago, and since the very begining of use it has some problems with screen, which sometimes turns white while it's been moved (sometmes while opening the laptop for examle). Does anyone know why this is happening? 

Answer:Yoga 510-15IKB screen turning white

Hi, MP87 ?
 
Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.
 
If you get the white screen during POST but the display is fine on an external display then the cause if most likely the LVDS cable. Try to reseat or change this part and observe.

Dear Lenovo Team Been fortunate enough to have exchanged my prior 2 Yoga Pros 3 for a new one via retailer. Everything has been running smoothly on the first day until I noticed some short white lines (cannot determine the length as it is only visible against dark backgrounds and flickers lightly for 2-3 seconds) on different parts of the screen. The laptop has been switched on for around 8 hours and used for browsing with no documents or apps opened. Whether it be connected to a power adaptor, running on battery only, in laptop or in tent mode, placed on different surfaces, this has occured 5 times already. This is my third Yoga Pro 3... I will not be able to (or would want to ask retailer to exchange it) but am hoping that I will not have to send it to a service centre - since it's brand new and a lot of time and energy has been spent on this product by all parties. Should I wait and see first after all the main updates have finished? Would appreciate any help and advice. Thanks    

Answer:Brand New Yoga Pro 3: Screen flickering white lines

I would not wait, I would contact tech support. Make sure to tell them about the previous machines from the same retailer. I have no idea what would cause that many machines from the same retailer have the same problem, My Y3P went thru UPS and I have had Zero problems (other than a few update issues) with it.

I have a problem with flickering screen which sometimes is very intensive, sometimes not. Mouse pointer is also behaving strangely according to flickering intensity. I tried reinstalling OS, drivers and finally found that the problem is caused by Intel UHD Graphics 620 drivers. Tried these from Lenovo website, also generic from Intel website, but result is the same. Other drivers (including BIOS) are up-to-date. External monitor (with 620 drivers) and BIOS/Windows install screens works great, so I gues the problem is not in hardware. Now I have to use default Microsoft basic display adapter, but with this I am unable to connect external monitor. Is it worth waiting for new drivers? Or should i give back this computer to warranty (bought only yesterday). Laptop specs:i5-8250U 1.6Ghz8GB DDR4 RAMNVIDIA GeForce MX150 2GBSamsung 850 Evo (changed instantly after buying)

I am a very frustrated and angry customer at the moment as i keep running into Road Block and unacceptable answers.  This issue is enough to cause me to never buy another Lenovo laptop or any laptop at Best Buy!I bought my computer in July and in September i noticed a key had popped off-  the "< ," key next to the M key.  I have used the key board only when i was setting up-  now at my office and at customers i set it in downward dog mode ;-) and use a blue tooth key board.    So it is not from use that it broke.   I took the laptop into BEST BUY and was told that the key was missing a metal part on the back so they could not fix it onsite-  i would have to send it in and be without my laptop for a week to 10 days - unacceptable -  this was a month or more ago. I searched on the LENOVO website and could not find a way to purchase a single or the entire set of Keys!  I am self employed as a software consultant.   My life is pretty busy and i finally decided today to bite the bullet and ask for a call from Lenovo support.  Again i am told the only way to fix this is to send my laptop in for a repair.  I asked to just be able to buy a KEY - i am told that well they do not sell individual keys - they would replace the entire keyboard!  So sell me the keyboard and or send me one an i will take into best buy to have them replace it while i wait.  They cannot do that.   I live...

The HDMI Output quality is normal as expected, but the VGA output gives me headaches and is visible that the image is "wavey"  Is there any way to overcome this issue ?

Question: Yoga 720-15ikb

Hello, i am thinking of getting the laptop above, but I have a few concerns. 1) is the wireless card in it already an intel 8265ac card? Is not, can it be upgraded with a FRU 01AX704? I'm not sure if it's compatible with the bios whitelist on this machine and my googling skills haven't come back with much! 2) what make is the SSD in this machine? Is it PCIE-NVME based? It only says 256gb. Can hard drives be replaced for any model or does it have to be in the whitelist like wireless cards? I'm hoping it's a Samsung pro 960 256gb! 3) I've also heard it's hard to install windows from scratch on these machines due to the controller for the hard drive being set to RAID rather than AHCI/NVME, which means windows doesn't detect it upon installation. I've heard there's a bios out there now which allows AHCI to be selected from the bios so it makes it straight forward enough (a lot of linux users wanted this!) but Lenovo have said it may cause issues with performance if installing windows through this way? Is this just Lenovo covering their backs or is this a genuine concern? any clarification on the bottom point would be great. thanks!

Having issues with constant ghost touches on touchscreen. Have tried checking for updates, uninstalling/reinstalling driver. Ended up disabling driver. Tried re-enabling after a bunch of updates and there are so many ghost touches that it took over a minute to click the "disable" button and make it stop. Have seen previous models have had luck with firmware updates. Anything like that available for the 720?

Using both the physical and on screen keyboard I can't send this desired input. Driver reinstalls did nothing. The hardware is fine. I can even get (alt+fn+down) to work. This isn't a global hotkey issue as best I can tell either. Some reported issues included the Intel Graphics Control Panel intercepting these inputs, so I disabled its hotkey manager and the problem persists.

Lenovo support, thank you for bios solution for windows it's really helpful, but you forgot one thing. That thing is Linux users!! Instalation Linux for that laptop is like a developers quiz, you should become UNIX developer to start FREE Ubuntu on that device. After installation new issues - drivers. What`s going on, Lenovo? I can't use my fingerprint on it, cause no drivers!!!! And the most painfull for me: NOIZE from laptop, it`s like a reactive rocket, on battery it work just 2-3 hours(at the same time linux use less CPU and RAM).

So, I too am reporting the ghost touch issue with my Lenovo laptop.  This is on the Yoga 710-15IKB model.  Same exact issue that others are reporting on the 700, 710, and 900 models.  I have uninstalled/reinstalled ALL drivers found for this model, updated drivers via Microsoft, have the BIOS update, made countless changes to the touchpad to see if it is the issue.  But, NONE of those things have worked.  The issue appears to happen randomly after waking up from sleep.  Usually within a few minutes after wake.  I can do NOTHING to stop the issue once it starts other than to hard reset the power button, then wait a few seconds and restart.  Once I've done that, the issue is resolved until... whenever it randomly wants to do it again... usually the next day. Lenovo... there has to be a solution to this!  You resolved it with a firmware upgrade on the older 700 model.  Can you work through the issue and get us a solution?  And, please, don't say to send the unit in for repair.  The issue clearly is a firmware issue.

I have Sketchup Pro 2017 installed on my Yoga 720 laptop at work.  On paper it seems like this computer should be more powerful than the machine its replacing, but its performance in Sketchup is really slow.  It makes the program really difficult to use because its freezing and lagging so much.  I've run a quick diagnostic on the machine and it passed.  I also have run Sketchup with the task manager window open and it seems to be using about 35-45% of the memory while its running.  Is it a graphics card issue?  My collegue ran one of the same files I've been working on and it worked fine and her machine is in theory less powerful.  She is using Windows 7 however.  Could it be an operating system issue?  Any other ideas?

I just bought this machine and the display color is rather yucky and washed out. I did play with color calibration in the Windows 10 settings, and was able to match my existing monitor by turning red and green way down and then cranking up the saturation in Intel UHD 630 settings. The problem is, the screen now gives me headache because blue is turned up relative to red and green. So now I'm looking to see if I have the right color profile to begin with. The color profile associated with the monitor was "sRGB display profile with display hardware configuration set to.." Is this the right profile for this laptop? I did search and I couldn't find the color profile for this laptop. Microsoft site says I need to get the monitor driver, not the display/graphics driver, but I don't find that either. Does anybody know where I can find the downloadable color profile for this model?

Hi, I just bought this laptop 2 days ago, and i really am impressed with how it performs. The only problem i've incountered earlier this morning is that some of the keys in the keyboard didn't work (the P,Z,C keys). I left it on sleep the night before.  After i restarted and remove my mouse from the laptop, it suddenly works again. My question is, is this showing some sign of malfunctioning keyboard? I don't want to always have to restart my laptop and doing all the steps above. Any advice?

Hello!In the past few days, my yoga laptop has been having this issue where if I unplug my headphones once, they won't work again till I reinstall my driver and restart my laptop.  However, once they are unplugged again I'm back at square one.  I've tried with three different set of headphones (different two earbuds and one normal over the ear type) and I have the same issue.I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the Realtek High Definition Audio driver a lot of times in these past few days.  I've even tried installing it via redownloading the file from the lenovo support page and nothing seems to work.  Once the headphones are unplugged, only my speakers work.  It is like the laptop kind of recognizes that the headphones are plugged in, but will not play sound through them.I've also noticed that when I start playing music (while the music is still picking up my headphones) the music will start really quiet and then suddenly get VERY loud at random despite the volume number it is on.  Once it gets louder, it stays that way until the headphones are unplugged.  Then, I hear nothing once replugging them in.I'm not sure what to do and I hope I can get some help.Thanks!

Last week I spilled drop of coffee+milk on my trackpad and it stopped working properly (I know you think I must have actually dropped a gallon but I asked my friend to come over and open my laptop with me and after we opened it, he couldn't see anything -- he was skeptical that I had dropped any liquid whatsoever, so, yeah, it was a drop of milk+coffee on the wrong place..). The pointer was behaving erraticatly and my friend and I, not tech savvy but rational ppl, figured that it must have short-circuited. So I went to ebay and order a replacemente part. The trackpad came with the keyboard + palmrest. The trackpad seemed to be a perfect match. The palmrest was a little bit different. My laptop has the fingerprint reader but the one I ordered didn't have. I thought it wouldn't make any difference since I only wanted the trackpad.The replacement arrived. I swapped the trackpad, made sure all cables were connected (there's actually only one but you got the point), closed my laptop, turned it on and... the trackpad was still not working.  Does anyone have any idea of what I should do next? I took a closer look on the letters and numbers I found on the trackpad and compared the original with the replacement and there's one or two numbers/letters that are different but they are otherwise identical. I can't make sense of why it didn't work and can't think of what to do next. I'd really appreciate some feedback. Thanks,

Possibly two different problems but for now I really only care about the internal speakers stuttering as I rarely use my bluetooth speakers on my pc. Any hardware can be specified.

Hi there,  My very new Lenovo Yoga 710 (15" IKB) laptop/two-in-one has been fantastic so far except in one regard. Whenever I play a game, the fan gets quite loud and the temperature shoots up. I'm not one hundred percent sure if this happened in the first few days but I have come to notice it far more recently. When playing a pretty standard game, such as World of Warcraft, the temp will shoot up to somewhere around 65 degrees celsius (sometimes up to 70) with the bottom getting quite hot, and the fans will become quite loud. Even a very low requirement game, like FIFA 15 (which is obviously 2 years old now), can cause the temp to reach about 60 degrees and the fans to get loud, and when downloading a driver from Nvidia I noticed that the temperature had again risen, this time to 52 degrees with the fans spinning loudly again. I had earlier had a display issue that I fixed by downloading display drivers from Lenovo's website. I'm not sure if there's any driver I could download to rectify this issue (I already updated BIOS from the download on Lenovo's website)?

Hi, I have this problem, which I also had on a 710-15ISK before I replaced mine with this model due to cracked screen. Intermittently, while "computering", the keyboard will stop working as expected.Only a variety of keys will work, like some mode has been activated by an accidental key press.Like I said, this happened on my previous 710 as well. It's frustrating because I'm learning programming, and the issue doesn't resolve until I sleep the laptop and unsleep it, which makes me believe it isn't some key combination I'm hitting, but rather maybe a jam of the keyboard.The same keys stop working each time, and same for the keys that remain working. If I can if it happens again, I will write down each key working/not working, but until then, does anyone have some insight on this?

I have come to my last resort, which feels like I have wasted money on this Yoga - It has taken me almost a year, I still don't have a clean event log and the only thing I have minimized is the locking up of the machine when the nvidea goes haywire.  Simple answer - on edge and explorer I force fed it the crappy Intel chip.  Now it's 'rev up' is limited.   I'm running Win10Pro 64bit. up to date on everything.  This situation has been since the first day I used this thing.  I can't trust it enough to use for work, so here it sits. just something to do nothing much with.   Is there a real fix for this that makes better sense than having a GPU that isn't used?

Two days ago, my internet was being slow, and I had the adapter reset as per usual through the WiFi troubleshooter. The adapter for the first time caused a BSOD when doing this. So I thought "Fine, its a one time thing", I didn't get the chance to get the error message but the cause involved the adapter, I know that much. When my laptop restarted, I noticed a nice little "x" on the speaker tray icon. Scrolling over it, it told me that "No Audio Output Device is Installed." Nothing I did would fix it, including the basic solutions across the internet such as uninstalling the drivers, etc. While looking at the drivers, not all of them were missing, only maybe one or two, definitely one in the Sound, video and Game Controllers area with the name (MEDIA) in it (that much I remember, I believe it was from NVIDIA too), along with one that was put into the "Other Drivers" area, or whatever it was called, by Intel but with a yellow exclamation mark on it and it related to audio. I got the problem to be fixed by doing a system restore back to the 10th, before some updates occurred.Last night, my keyboard was malfunctioning (not allowing me to backspace, only allowing me to type in certain areas, not allowing me to use the letter "C", and telling me to backspace by hitting "Alt + LeftArrow."

I have looked through all the documentation from Lenovo and on these forums and have not been able to determine which version of the HDMI spec (1.4 or 2.0) the micro-HDMI port supports. Although this laptop has a 4K display, I wouldn't necessarily expect that the micro HDMI port to be 2.0 but it would make since and would be a smart thing to do.

Recently I found out that my lenovo yoga 710-15ikb laptop doesnt support digitizer active pen technology. Its hidden in online talks and also frustration when you buy a $70 wacom bamboo ink pen to find that it doesnt work. I understand that most active pens wont work with my computer because the screen (and maybe motherboard) dont have a digitizer. However, I have been looking online and some retailers appear to be selling digitizer lcd screens for my specific model. My question is whether or not these retailers are selling aftermarket screens and if they are will the digitizer work once one is installed? Also, I have a lot of experience doing repair work, mainly with digital cameras and building my desktop, so the task of replacing my laptops screen is not a problem Im just unsure as to whether or not buying a new digitizer lcd screen will work. I dont want to spend money that I dont have to if it turns out that I am just being misled.

Thanks!

Let me know if you need more clarification I'll be around for a while.

I just recently bought the YOGA 710-15IKB and after I got it which was on 1/27/17, I went to the product support page and downloaded all of the updated drivers and the BIOS update. I did everything as it was supposed to be done and now out of nowhere the Screen will not turn on, I can turn it on, the keyboard lights up, it seems to charge just fine but the screen just stays black, anybody have any ideas on how to possibly troubleshoot this, or what could have caused this?

My laptop had tons of problems in it's first year and after having to go to BBB  , Dell finally took responsibility!  . They sent me a tech to my home and he replaced my motherboard and the whole screen and lid due to black and color flickering screen. This was about 9 months ago and laptop has worked awesome UNTIL Microsoft snuck in that Windows 10 download.  I get up to go to the kitchen and come back and Windows 10 is downloading without my permission!  It was at 10% and I freaked as I didn't want it. So I turned my laptop off. Well all seemed fine when I started it back up, but then ever since my screen flickers white starting at the bottom and slowly covers the entire screen. I found adjusting the screen tilt all the way back kept it from doing that. But recently even that is not working so well. I have Windows 8.1 64bit and I even reformatted my laptop to see if it would correct the problem.  But it didn't. It is doing the same thing. Pressing on the screen does not trigger the white flickering screen, only adjusting the screen tilt. I sure don't want to go to GeekSquad and pay those prices. I am a little techie repair wise - I replaced a Tivo hard drive and fan (that was cake) and also watched a YouTube video and replaced an iphone battery. If easy enough to replace something that would be great. Hope someone knows how to help me.  Thank you.

A few weeks after I brought my Y50 every now and then I got random white lines flickering across the screen for a while after it booted or was awoken from sleep, now just recently they started getting a lot worse and lasting a lot longer. It seems they're worse when plugged into AC, but they're still appearing on battery power. They're horizontal and randomly appear up and down the screen at no specfic location.

My son installed and ran a game today...it froze during one part. We rebooted. Now the white background flickers (not just in the game but all of the time)....doesnt actually go black or skip or anything like that but its really harsh on the eyes. I've tried resetting my colors (they are at 32bit) tried changing the scheme...it still flickers. Any ideas?

running XP pro, newly installed just a couple of days ago.
 

Answer:white background flickering

Go to control panel then display then settings tab then advanced - adaptor tab then see what the REFRESH RATE is set at.
My setting is 85 hz but yours will depend on youre set up.
I would go for OPTIMAL if you dont know the setting to use .

Hi Guys,

I recently purchased an AMD 7970. Ever since I've been using it I've been experiencing white flickering spots in-game. Here is a short video where you can see this: http://youtu.be/n-t0rmfiIuE [youtu.be]

I already played around with the settings in game and nothing seems to change. BF3 is the only game where I have this issue. I'm running AMD's latest 12.3 driver but I've experienced this since 11.12 or whatever the patches were upon release. I really don't have a clue what I could do and from trying to look for other people with the same issue but I haven't been able to find anything.

Any help is greatly appreciated,

baN
 

Answer:White flickering in BF3 with AMD 7970

If it only happens in BF3 its probably just a driver issue.

Make sure your directx and drivers are up to date. There were a few shadow glitches in BF3, and with such a new gpu im guessing this is what you are seeing, Probably be patched soon.

As in my subject, can the Yoga 720 (15-inch) be hooked up to a 2560x1440 @ 144Hz External Monitor? I understand that I have to get a usb-c to DisplayPort adaptor to get it to work. However, I am not sure of the DisplayPort specifications in this Thunderport 3 port of Yoga 720 as for a laptop to run 144Hz on an external monitor, it has to be at least DisplayPort 1.2.

Answer:Yoga 720 - 15IKB: Can it be hooked up to a 2560x1440 @ 144Hz External Monitor?

I'm not an expert with monitors, but I'd check the monitor's specs to see what kind of inputs it'll work with. I would imagine the monitor will upscale or adapt to the input signal. It'd be silly to make a monitor that wouldn't work with anything the installed base of computers can throw at it.

After i upgraded to BIOS 2XCN30WW(V2.05) dated 2017/06/21 i started to experience lags and temporary freezes (for 20/30 seconds and it would recover) while using windows 10 creators edition.The lag/freeze can be described as a period of time every 10 minutes or so in which the computer stops responding to keyboard input and eventually to mouse movements, if you had a youtube video or audio playing in the background it starts coming out distorted, everything makes you think there is something hogging the CPU or RAM, it recovers itself after 20 or 30 seconds, sometimes less than that.I first blamed Slack Client but quickly found that it didn't have anything to do. It didn't seem related to load as the CPU/RAM usage in Task Manager remained low during these periods.I then blamed a recent Windows Update patch , which i rolled back prompty without noticing any changes.My last option and what ultimately resolved the issue is the rolling back the BIOS upgrade that i applied at about the same time of the windows patch.I enabled the Allow Back-Flash option in BIOS setup and rolled back to version 2XCN29WW, and the problem dissapeared for good, and just to confirm that the BIOS was to blame after a few days of happy computing i decided to give the new BIOS another try and TADAH! soon after the update the freeze/lags started again.I just wanted to share this with you guys in hopes that if you are having similar issues you can resolve them using this message.And since Lenovo doesn't seem...

This may be due to overheating caused by clogged air vents or failed thermal paste. I would recommend using canned computer cleaning air to gently remove dust, check for fan movement while running.

I have a customer who has the above model Lenovo laptop. She hooked up an an external display via HDMI using a HDMI-mini HDMI adapter connected to the mini-HDMI port of the laptop which was working fine for more than a few months. She was using the Best Buy Insignia brand. All of a sudden, the external display no longer detected the laptop and the laptop didn't detect the second display. I remoted in and checked everything out and it seemed OK as far as drivers and such so, for simplicity sake (and after having her verify the external display was working wtih other devices), I had her pick up an Insignia HDMI-miniHDMI cable and just bypass the adapter. She tried that, no luck. So I remoted in again and uninstalled the Intel and Nvidia drivers and reisntalled them using the drivers from the Lenovo website. There was no change. I've done some extensive research about this issue in the forums and there have been other models with similar issues and the fixes were... using a different cable, different adapter, or both. These were mainly solutions to solve the problem of secondary displays not being detected at first, not fixing the issue of it working just fine for a while until one day... nothing. Has anyone come across an issue similar to this? I'm trying to get more of a definate solution versus swapping more adapters and cables around.

I have just bought an expensive HP 2 in 1 lap top (15 inch Envy x360) and having set it all up I have found that about 80% of the time the screen displays flickering white dotted lines, usually vertical about an inch apart.  These are not continuous lines, but rather they are rapidly flickering very small dots - a bit like a pinstripe suit but more erratic.  When I am working on a white background (e.g. while writing this post) I cannot see it, but on a dark background e.g. watching a film or when opening the start meny, it is noticeable.   It is just about tolerable, but very irritating and is I think giving me a headache.   I have tried projecting to my TV as an external monitor and the problem persists, so it must be a lap top hardware or a software fault.   Does anyone have any tips as to whether and if so how I can put this right from home myself?  Please note whilst I have been using computers for c. 25 years I am not an IT techie so plain English would be helpful in any replies!  Many thanks all and Happy New Year.

Answer:White/Red/Blue Lines flickering and other problems

Try taking your Graphics Card out if possible, if it works when you take that out then get it replaced either if its under warranty or buying a new one.

If that doesn't solve the problem try using a different Monitor, if this Monitor works then obviously get your Monitor replaced by Samsung

I was searching online and the screen went white and became static-y. I turned it off...tried to restart but now it's restarting and shutting down in a loop...I took the battery out...it's not doing the loop thing anymore.

I waited about 5 minutes, started without the battery and it started but then I got the white screen again that flickers/static so I turned it off. Been waiting for 10 minutes now. I started it again and was glad it went to the windows screen, then it scrambled up again. I hit control+alt+delete. it restarted, then went into windows. It said windows failed to start and to launch startup repair. I did that. It found the problem and fixed it and told me to restart. When i did, the whole thing happened all over again static-y white screen, then reboots by itself in a loop).

I have an hp dv6812nr laptop, with windows 7.

I have everything on my computer and cannot afford to lose anything on here.

I have a refurbished Flex 4-1580 Laptop about a week old.  Sometimes when powering on or waking the entire screen will be white, then start flickering fast with very fine dark lines.  Sometimes the bottom half of the screen will go dark.  Sometimes this will clear up by itself after a few seconds.  If I open the screen more fully, near 180 degrees, it clears up.  Earlier I thought I had a driver problem, but now it appears to be related to the hinges.  So far fully opening "fixes" the problem. How is the display connected electrically?  Is there a cable, or some kind of moving contacts?  I'm wondering if something is loose. I hate to send this back now that I've spent a lot of time setting it up, but I also don't want it to fail past my 90-day warranty.  So if it perssists I will probably send it back.

Hello everyone at forum,  In the last months, I've been having some issues with my touchscreen laptop. I have an 15.6" Acer Aspire M5 583p 9688.The screen flickers to a degraded blank screen if I move the lid.The problem has been incresing over time, starting with just a few random flickers to basically having a blank screen unless I find just the right spot. Another possibly useful clue is that when open all the way it usually works, it also usually works if is almost closed. The problem appears only in around 70% of the possible angles that the lid can open (I hope this is clear). Also, the touch feature in the screen works perfectly, even when flickering.  I just moved to Paris for a few months, and I wanted to wait until I return in December to have it fixed. But last week, I turned my computer from sleep and the screen was now black! You could tell that it wasn't off, though. So I restarted it by pressing the ON/OFF button for a few seconds and when I turned it ON again, the screen was working again (the flickering persisted, though). I had this happen again durnig the week and applied the same solution, but I'm afraid that rebooting the system this ofen might do some damage to my Laptop. Have any of you had this problem before? Do you have any ideas what it could be? I read about a wire maybe being faulty. I went to two local repair shops and told me that they couldn't do anything, so I'm lost.  Thanks for any advice!

I have dell N7010 laptop. For past 3 months, the monitor starts flickering with horizontal white lines constantly after every 3 to 5 seconds.
It starts slowly with few lines at the bottom of the monitor and gets worse.
When the laptop connected to TV via HDMI no flickering even after watching a complete movie.
Kindly advise.
Thanks

Screen flickers severely during startup screen for several seconds before I am able to log in. Also flickers once I am logged in, although not nearly as bad, and only every few minutes. The computer is about three years old, and has never been dropped for this to happen.  Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RXEJPLfLZLw

Hi, I'm new here but my son plugged in a flat screen monitor to his HP laptop and now it is showing light, badly flickering, split screen, some parts of the information not even seen. He shut down immediately but when booted up again the lap top was still messed up. I feel terrible. I bought the flat screen for my computer and am using it now on my desktop and it works fine but he is pretty bummed. I don't blame him. Can you help? The HP did not come with a recovery disk or even a manual. We bought it last year, 4 g of ram with lots of Hard Drive memory, and have never had problems.

It is running Vista and the screen is cut in half (the left side begins in the middle and the middle begins on the left side and the flickering is so bad I cannot read where to find a start button or the control panel, also I noticed the adapter is very hot which I believe is not a good sign.

Answer:Split, White, Flickering, Monitor on HP laptop 4g ram, lots hard drive available.

Hi all,

I thought you may be able to help! my graphics have gone mad, on windows there's random distortion of the screen(boxes drooping and tearing for example) and black and white pixel flickering pretty much constantly.

Then on games like age of empires the screen goes mad flicking images around, and in fps games well its completely nuts thousands of 3d spikes flashing around the screen.. i have a video but i'm not sure i can upload on here..

i've tried drivers and system restore to no avail.. have you ever heard of anything like this and do have any suggestions on how to fix this???

regards

bill

In my opinion you should connect the notebook to the external monitor just to check if its internal display problem or maybe the graphic card issue. I think its GPU issue but an external monitor check is worth a try.

However, in both cases the faulty part needs to be replaced. :(
