Screen flickering / waving Issue

Q: Screen flickering / waving Issue

Hi, I just bought the Dell Inspiron 2in1 couple of months back and started having the problem of waving / flickering of screen. This flickering is more towards right side of screen and starts from there, but with time moves on to the whole screen. After restart it disappears for some time.
When I checked the graphics setting, the refresh rate is set at 60 pHz by default. When I changed the refresh rate to only other option of 48 pHz, problem is gone for now. Can some suggest what could be the problem, whether it is a software issue or hardware problem. What is the possible fix ? Thanks

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

Hi All,

I'm trying to fix a flickering screen. I am pretty sure that it is a software related problem. It happened after I formatted and re installed XP professional. The reason I believe its a software issue is that it is not a constant problem. A lot of time it will be flickering and then you open up IE explorer and it immediatly stops. Then when you search something it will come back. It also sometimes happens during start-up so not sure if that means something. I have updated the BIOS based on Compaq website and updated all drivers. I should have mentioned I am talking about a Compaq Presario 2200 Notebook.

The flickering is horizontal lined where if fades dark and light. Sometimes its the entire screen other times its just near the top. Moving the position up and down has no effect on the flickering. (Another reason to think its software related). Also I don't have an external monitor to hook up to and see if it is hardware related unfortunatly.

If there is any questions I would be happy to help and any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!!

Thanks in advance.

To whom it may concern
I?ve purchased Lenovo IdeaPad 320-15IKBN 80XL01NGGE last week without OS and I?ve installed Windows 10.
 
Unfortunately the screen started flickering and had no choice to search on the internet for a solution and find out that it is a common problem!
 
This laptop has NVIDIA GeForceŽ 940MX 4.0 GB and I?ve downloaded Nvidia_VGA_22.21.13.8554.A (17 Nov 2017) from pc support Lenovo website but it kept flickering.
 
Updated BIOS version from 4WCN29WW (30 Sept 2017) to 4WCN39WW (24 Feb 2018) by systemupdate5.07.0070 but still the screen kept flickering
 
Updated Windows version 1709 OS Build 16299.125 and again the screen kept flickering
 
What can I do to solve this problem because I am VERY DISAPPIONTED with this outcome?

Bumped into this tftcentral.co.uk article by accident. It pretty much explains the intermittent flickering I noticed in my XPS 15 9550. DELL support could not figure that out themselves.

The temp solution was then to go to my driver colour settings and decrease the contrast and the brightness. Hopefully I will not need to change the settings again.

Hi,

I'm looking for some help diagnosing a flickering screen problem I have with a Sony Vaio laptop. So, it's started happening recently when I turn it on, it flickers as it turns on, then eventually goes all black. Sometimes if I close the screen down it comes back on again for a few seconds. When I re-boot again it always has the same behaviour, flickers and then eventually goes black at some stage, not always at the same stage, sometimes I might get to log on, sometimes not. I've connected to an external monitor and everything works fine.

For me, it's not an inverter issue because I've seen inverter issues before and it was very consistent behaviour, the screen just blacks out consistently and you can see the screen with a torch, in this case, I can't really see screen with or it's very difficult to. If it is ccfl issue, I would've thought that bulb would be gone and that's it, it would just never light up....

One more thing that would indicate ccfl issue to me is if I turn it on and have the screen dimmed to it's lowest it works fine and stays on until I start to brighten it up again and then just goes black.

Any experts out there can diagnose this for me, I'm not sure if it is ccfl issue, and I don't want to go messing with it, I tried to replace a bulb once before and it was a disaster, not an easy process for a half amateur compared to replacing an inverter.


One other point is that there seems to be a... Read more

The case has been closed and the problem is not solved yet.

I bought this laptop back in September-ish of 2014. It runs perfectly fine still and always has but the image on my screen has been a problem since probably December of 2014. I know that seems ridiculous for me to just now be bringing it up but I honestly dont use it that often and only for pleasure so I always put it off and forgot about it.

The screen basically flickers blue in certain spots. Corners of windows, icons, links, etc. Its almost as if it was highlighted... I am not sure what it is. Sometimes it randomly goes away but then comes back within a few days.

If i do a screen grab of the blue flickering it doesnt appear in the jpg. So i took a picture with my cell phone. I uploaded that pic as well as my system specs to this thread.

Anyone please help lol....Bestbuy within 10 minutes told me it would cost me $200 for a new screen without even doing anything besides comestically looking at the screen and laptop. HP has been beyond awful in their "support"

Hi there, I bought a Lenovo Yoga 910, Intel Core i5, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD 4K laptop in September 2017. I've had no major issues with it until the past few days. What is happening is that when I'm watching a video, on seemingly any player, after a while the screen starts going crazy, it's fairly hard to describe so I'll link a video to it. https://sendvid.com/eoi9k12k Once that starts to happen, any time I mouse over anything the screen flickers, and anytime I open anything (e.g. an internet tab/the start menu) it goes back to the original freak out style. If I manage to minimise everything and sit on the home screen with the mouse not touching any icons then the screen is fine.  I feel like there was an update fairly recent prior to this starting, so whether that is the cause or not I'm not sure. I'm a standard computer user, so for information that is required I'll likely need pointing out how exactly I go about finding said information or performing said task if it's not pretty basic.  Thanks in advance for any advice.

This seems to be  a problem with many yoga 730-13 users, My screen keeps flickering, to a point where i constantly have to adjust my screen to stabilize the screen. Sometime it gets unbearable to a point where I cannot even use my laptop anymore. This has happened to me previously and at first i installed the new BIOS update and did whatever Lenovo told me to do, but it did not work. Eventually, my laptop would not turn on for some reason. I did send it back for repair, and the laptop seemed to be working fine for that first week, then the screen flickering issue happened again. At this point, I am lost at what to do? has anyone else found a solution to this problem? is there a way lenovo could possibly recall this model, or atleast give our money back since this seems to be a manufacturer issue?

Hi all,
I've recently bought a Dell 7559 refurbished, with the Intel core i5 and GTX 960m. Within a day or two of use, the screen began to flicker upon booting up or waking from sleep mode, and it seems that the longer the laptop was in sleep/off mode, the worse the flickering is upon booting up. I've been trying to figure out what's going on, I've updated all drivers and such from the Dell support page, but nothing seems to fix this issue. Does anyone know what's going on? I'm certainly bummed out to have run into this issue within just days of buying the product. I've uploaded a youtube video to try and show what's going on.

Hi DukeBaluk,
I’d suggest that you update BIOS on your computer to check for issue resolution. Please enter your service tag # on the link below, then download the BIOS from BIOS section onto the system and install it.
http://dell.to/18r60nI
Also, we will have to perform the ‘LCD BIST’ (Built in Self-test) on the computer. Please follow the steps mentioned below to run the “LCD BIST’.

Turn of the computer.
Press and hold down the ‘D’ key on the keyboard and press the Power button.
You will see different colors on the LCD screen. Please check if the issue reoccurs on the screen.

In addition, please connect the system to an external monitor and check if the issue reoccurs.

Had this Sager np2740 laptop and it has had lot of issues. When i first got it, it was great. Battery was good and everything. After having the laptop for a bit, my battery went bad. Had that Red X mark on it. I bought a new battery replacement which was expensive. Had to go to repair shop to install battery on laptop because you had to open laptop in order to put battery in.


After that, battery went bad and had that Red X mark ever since. Then recently my laptop flickers a lot the screen. Like rainbow color. Now theres a black line there. But if i move screen up or down, it goes green or yellow etc. The thing though is i connect my laptop to an external monitor so i dont have this issue with my main screen. Thus it would be impossible to use my laptop by itself because of the blurry lines.


Since I'm out of warranty... this is with xoticpc, what can i do about this case? Go to a repair shop and see what they can do about it? The thing is if i need a replacement part, wouldn't i need to order from sager/xoticpc for this issue? I have had nothing but issues with this laptop once the battery first ran out.

A:Laptop Flickering Screen And Huge Issue with Clicking

I also had another issue related to this. Earlier when i was trying to click on things on my laptop screen... it kept asking me if i want to delete this program from computer. Example i would left click on a program on my desktop or click on my pictures or documents.
I click no and then i had this message show up over and over again where I cannot X it out. Had to been like that message popping up over and over again. I assume this is related to the screen flickering? Example i would use my mouse and click on programs on my desktop or my documents etc left clicking it like normal. It would then have the popup are you sure you want to delete file and send to recycle bin. Basically i click no but that same message keep popping up over and over again. When i got control alt delete, you see it has like 50 processes that say program isn't responding or something like that. Only way to get rid of this is to restart my laptop or shutdown then start it up again.
And when i do restart laptop or close it and start up, it would have this message with black screen and have option to click Enter where it says Window 7. Like asking which program to start up. Does anyone know what this is?

Hi...I am hoping to get some guidance on an issue that I am having.  We bought my daughter a Yoga 730 for college in July and she started experiencing issues with the screen flickering to the point she cannot use it except for in tablet mode.  In tablet mode she says it does not flicker at all but it is harder for her to use (and she honestly should be able to use it as a laptop also..that is why we chose the Yoga).  I purchased it via Amazon and their tech support sent links to update the BIOS etc. which my daughter has done but the flicker continues. My problem(s) are these 1) Get the flicker issue resolved.  Since it works fine in tablet mode it most likely is not a software issue and I have read quite a few posts online about the wire to the display being pinched but need someone who knows about these things to take a look at it and resolve the issue.  2) She is at college 13 hours away and needs to use her laptop on a daily basis for school.  The 13 hours means I cannot drive over to her dorm and take a look at it and her need to use it means she cannot go without a machine for long. If someone could provide some insight into how Lenovo typically handles these types of issues and what type of turnaround time she can expect?  There is a warranty place near where she is at school and that might help with the shipping time etc. but not sure. Thanks in advance....

Hi, I bought a T480s back in December 2018 and have noticed this problem in the title for quite a while now. I'm running the following: Processor: i7-8650UNo MX150Graphics: Intel UHD 620Screen: WQHDMultiple times throughout the day my screen will flicker or momentarily black out sections (typically the bottom portion) of it. It doesn't happen as often when fewer applications are open, but it still occurs even then. It doesn't appear to be a hardware issue, given that I've tried moving the laptop back and forth, shook it gently etc. to try to reproduce the strange behavior.I tried updating the Intel drivers only for the problem to worsen -- updating the driver to the November version (25.x something) caused the computer to additionally black out the screen entirely at times, which could only be resolved by putting the laptop to sleep and waking it up again! I've decided to install version 24.20.100.6223 of the Intel 620 UHD driver, and I'm hoping it works without a hitch, but has anyone else had and resolved this sort of issue before? Or if some Lenovo staff are around, is there a solution? I'd really like to send it back for a replacement but my schedule won't allow me and I'd be out of a laptop for work.

I've seen some other posts for different models about similar issues, but it doesn't seem like mine really falls within the same problems as the others. If I am wrong, please let me know as I would love to have this fixed once and for all. Starting in September 2018, after moving, my M93z all-in-one screen got some lines in it, and it would flicker depending on where on the screen windows were placed. If white colors were behind the lines, it didn't like that. If it was black, it wouldn't flicker, but the lines were still there. I started using an external monitor exclusively. Fast forward to August 2019. I move again, this time from Boston to Sarasota, FL. The M93z rode on its side on the floor in the front passenger seat of my car which was on a trailer being towed by a 26' UHAUL truck. When I boot up the PC after the move, the screen is cured! It works like a charm for a month. But starting today, it is back to how it was. No, it didn't sustain any big bumps or shocks since it was set up in its current position. Only difference is that I left it on overnight to update to the latest version of Windows. When I woke up, the lines were back. I have opened it back when this issue first happened, jiggled cables around, nothing seems to affect it. I was about to buy a new screen for it until it fixed itself back in August 2019. Anyway, any help is appreciated. Thank you. PS: Pictures of the screen are attached...the "quality" of the lines seem t... Read more

Laptop screen flickering? - YouTube <-- Cellphone vid of the screen flicker

So a year or so ago I had to send my laptop off to Staples Business Depot where I got it to have my screen fixed. It would randomly start flickering black and loseing picture before coming back. Sometimes It wouldnt come back for a few minutes or at all until shutdown.

After staples was done looking at it they just backed up and reset my laptop. This is what was said:

"Comprehensive hardware test performed. No trouble found with testing.

Video issue was only recreated inside Windows & tested ok outside of Windows. May have been a driver conflict / software incompatibility

A complementary factory re-installation was completed to ensure the system is performing to manufacturer design.

Repair completed and final testing passed. External cleaning performed. Returning to store for Customer pick-up"

And honestly that fixed it for the time being but now the issue is starting again. Same thing, has only happened once or twice but now I have no warrenty left to have it repaired.

Thus far it has only happened while I am on my desktop or using google chrome. It hasnt happened while playing any games yet but it did previously when the issue first started.

What I have noticed is that when started from cold it works fine but after a couple off minuets it starts to flicker then after about 5 min screen goes totally. Possible heat or expansion issue? Now from what I have gleaned from the forum, this indicates a hardware issue, question is what or where in the hardware is the problem as this appears to be a common fault and you would expect Lenovo to have somewhere a more definitive explanation and how its fixed. Or is the screen connector the problem after reading the comments on this video [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wmSeKcFg3xU] and was replacing the LCD Module a red hearing and was re-fixing the connector during the repair, is what fixed the flickering screen?

My encrypted Thinkpad T470 (2yrs old) has suddenly begun "crashing" during use. This doesn't seem to be triggered by any particular programs or user behaviour that I can identify, and once it happens it will occur again relatively soon if I restart it without a long rest. What happens is that the screen goes black, and white boxes flicker in and out. Sometimes I see white lines near the top, which I associate with graphics card issues, but I've never seen this white boxes pattern before. The laptp will not project on an external monitor, so it's not just a display issue. It does not fully shut down when this happens, but rather requires a force quit in order to restart. It restarts normally until it crashes again. Any ideas on what is happening here? Am I on the right track to suspect graphics card issues? Thanks.

Hi Someone With A Little Knowledge About This,

Does anyone know what it means to have your monitor start to wave. It's like a TV starting to go out. It's a horizontal wave, subtle but also quite there. I have my monitor as well as my PC hooked up to a surge protector so I'm not sure what that means for it waving on me? It's getting kind of bad. I've been using the monitor for two and a half years and bought it new at that time. It's a Hansol monitor. I'm also using Windows XP as my OS. Anyone have an idea what this might be and how to correct it? Please, I'm getting kind of concerned.

John

A:Monitor Waving?

Is any other problem occurring?

What video card/adapter are you using and how long and when does this occur?

If the video adapter is not getting sufficient power it might cause that kind of problem. What size is your power supply and what are you running with it?

Like a TV, a monitor is also susceptible to the same kinds of problems that a TV is. The problem might reside there as well if no other problems are occurring with the computer.

Normal screens like control panel and My computer are doing this wave effect and if I drag a screen it moves very slowly.
Also on my internet IE 7, also does the same thing.
I tried smooth scrolling changeing the number of scroll lines but it doesn't work. Please help!
 

A:Waving Effect on web pages, and computer screens.

Try this:

1. Rightclick the Windows desktop and choose Properties from the popup menu
2. Click the Settings tab and then click Advanced
3. In the next dialog box, click the Troubleshoot tab
4. Under Hardware acceleration, move the slider one notch to the left.
5. Click OK as many times as needed to return to the Desktop.

You can either reduce the acceleration a notch at a time until the problem goes away, or move it all the way to the left, test, then if that cures it, try moving it to the right again until the problem recurs, then back off one notch.

If changing the video hardware acceleration solves the problem, it's a signal that your computer's video driver isn't quite perfect. Check with the manufacturer (of the video system or the computer) to see if updated drivers are available.

I just bought this laptop for about 1 month, the laptop work fine before. But after...I don't know maybe after the windows update, the driver make the screen flickering and some dots appear on the screen, sometimes the screen lagging and went black. I'm pretty sure it's because of the driver because if I disable it, everything is fine,but that is just a temporary fix, every games is unplayable when I disable the driver. I tried to reinstall it using driver from Intel, Windows, Lenovo but none of them work(newest)

Hi
My Laptop is 13 months old Dell I7 5558, i was facing this screen flicker issue previously ,where i got my Laptop Screen replaced by you ,but now I'm facing the same issue . 
Previously before replacing i used to have just few flicker,now flicker rate got increased even more & Screen Goes black which is really annoying.
Even at the logo Screen I 'm seeing Green & pink lines
Sometimes nothing appears on the screen just  flicker of Green & pink lines & black Screen After that.Where i should  to remove my battery  & place it ,to turn on my laptop in this case.
Problem is not related to software, if that was the case flicker should not be at dell logo screen.
But FYI my Graphic Card Drivers are already up to date.
I Guess the problem is at the hinges or with the monitor or maybe related to mother board itself.
when my laptop screen is less than 90 degree i can see few flicker,when it 90 degrees or more than that ,continuous flicker & black screen later as like monitor looses power nothing .

Any Other Information Required let me know.

Hello, I have a Samsung SyncMaster 204B LCD monitor that is flickering after being turned on from being off for more than half an hour or so.The screen appears to be very dull and flickers a bit for about a minute or two,until it "warms up" then the screen brightness and clarity becomes normal,and the flickering stops.It seems to work normally when left on indefinitely.

Is this an early sign of failure? Repairable at all? It's close to 4 years old.I paid $500 for it at the time (right before LCD prices dropped significantly ) so I'd like to get at least a couple more years out of it.

Any suggestions? Thanks for reading.

Hello! :D

I've been seeing flickering video in Media Player Classic. It happens fairly frequently and occurs with Windows Media Player as well.
I've used both the latest build of Media Player Classic Home Cinema and the 1.60 version but the problem persists.

I also tried turning on "deinterlace" in the shaders but it didn't help.

Any ideas?

have you got all your codecs installed?
try KLite

are you playing high resolution video?
Maybe your computer is not powerful enough to play it and you need a graphics card or to turn the resolution down on the videos

I have just installed a new system consisting of Intel dg35ec motherboard( with 384 mb non-dedicated graphics card), core 2 duo, 2.8 ghz processor, 2 gb ram, samsung tft monitor etc. No other graphics card is there.
Problem is that the screen sometimes(not everytime) flicker. So what can be the possible reasons and what shall I do?
Note: Flickering is of very slight intensity

My laptop has had occasional problems with black flickering from day one, but now it's a pretty constant occurrence. I've done all the driver-type things but I really think it's a hardware issue, as slightly adjusting the screen often "fixes" the problem, at least for a while, and the flickering is never shown on duplicated screens. Here's mine: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w5sxB4GO6uo  I love this laptop when it works. But seeing the hundreds and hundreds of other similar comments and videos online is making me very frustrated. Why hasn't Lenovo acknowledged this as a hardware problem? Why are so many people sending their laptop in for repairs, Lenovo keeping the laptop for a month or more, then sending back an equally faulty unit? This is my work laptop so I can't just lose it for a month anyway. It just seems so unethical for Lenovo not to issue a recall on this product or refund people who have purchased them. Has anyone found a successful workaround yet? There are lots of videos of people taking their laptops apart and having some luck with tightening screws and so forth, but even some of those posts have comments later that it only worked for a little while...

Its this crazy flickering that keeps happening after playing games for a period. But when it happens in games like Skyrim, it does it in EVERY game then and windows explorer. Nothing else though. It only occurs in games like Skyrim, Tropico 5, Company of Heroes 2, Payday 2. Shadows of Mordor is another one. I have to restart my PC to get it to go away. But it comes back eventually, it usually takes like 30+ minutes to occur. Here's a gif: http://gyazo.com/8619db54132a8357122948e0bb27fed9 NOTE: It has never happened in the game on display, like I have that game at max settings and I can play it for 5 hours straight and it won't happen. ALSO, this is a VERY recent problem. I've clocked 50+ hours in Skyrim AND Payday 2 before this ever happened. One last thing, I have tried hooking up to another monitor, it occurs on that monitor as well so its not my monitor. I've tried a different DVI cable as well. I tried a fresh clean install of a new graphics driver. Specs: http://gyazo.com/2cf8050d81f429286ecf63f4e1739c26 http://gyazo.com/8560ee5315aff162dea8751e7d2c6efa
Sorry you saw this a few weeks ago. I was told it might be a over-heating problem, in which I took the card out, cleaned it and redid the thermal paste. But that didn't fix it. Another gif to help: http://gyazo.com/8a7210c1be8bcf571a21df2a8e8f57f9 EDIT: Could it be the PCI-E slot?

Hello, I'm kinda new in posting here so correct me if I'm doing something wrong. Since a week or so my laptop has been showing some weird behaviour. I have a Lenovo 520-15IKB (Type 80YL) Ideapad. The first thing I noticed was that I now have a very small bar of what is seemingly the top of my screen, under my taskbar. It sometimes goes away when I have restarted my laptop however it always comes back. The second thing is that sometimes my screen flickers black for a moment and then returns to normal (always with the bar of screen beneath my taskbar). This happens the most while watching vids on Youtube or so. I can't find how to fix this, my laptop is about half a year old. Can somebody help me please?

Hi there,

I developed a problem with my desktop pc yesterday. I was gaming and the screen began to flicker then the game crashed - citing "rendering device lost". I tried to re-load this again and the same thing happened again, this time with a BSOD. I tried a different game and the same thing occured, took slightly longer though. Given it was late I went to bed.

Today on loading up the sign in screen was flickering lots, I entered my password and was met by a black screen. The computer continued to make fan noises as if it was working, but nothing on my screen. This happened again. On restaring my computer the crash report read

"Blue Screen.

I've looked at the bug dump, but I was silly and did a system restore before this, so there's no bug dump.


The computer starts and runs fine in safe mode and without the graphics card in.

Since I've done a system restore
Cleaned everything again ( was pretty dust free to start)
Uninstalled and re-installed the graphics card drivers
Re-seated RAM and GPU
Done a memory diagnostic on my RAM
None of these have worked.
I've taken the graphics card out and it runs fine with the onboard GPU.

Some specs:
Intel I5 3570K
GPU - AMD Radeon HD 7870

Motherboard: Asus P8Z77M pro
PSU -OCZ Core steam 500W

My laptop Dell Inspiron 15R 5520(Core i3 2370M 6GB ram win 7 64bit)  worked perfectly from Nov2012-April2016. 

Now the screen started flickering and jumping since a few days and there's a white dotted line that appears along the top of the screen that starts the minute there is any kind of display.
How do I figure out if the inverter on the screen is faulty or if it's the screen cable or the whole screen itself?
To satisfy my curiosity I opened up my laptop to find that the lcd cable was badly crushed under the screen hinge (definitely , a design/manufacturing issue! Will dell take responsibility?), and each time the screen was shut/open there was substantial pressure on the cable was what I noticed.
Unfortunately I'm out of warranty and I don't know what to do.
Please advise on fixing this issue.

A:My Dell Inspiron 15R 5520 screen suddenly started flickering and the screen jumps 1inch every couple of seconds and is very annoying.

same problem.
I've already tried deactivating adaptive screen light.
seems incompatibility with windows 10
