Preferred Solution: W541 screen flickering on top

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)


Basically, I open my laptop, the screen on it does not work (with or without extended monitor plugged in), and won't turn on at all. When I go to my device display settings, my extended monitor works but when I click the project button to switch screens, my 'PC Screen Only' is being shown as my extended monitor. I can't figure out what happened to my laptop screen. am looking at getting it replaced, would it be worth it, and does it boil down to a screen/panel only issue? Thanks

Good day to us all an apologize if my question has previously been answered.I have a Lenovo W541 Model 20EGS0AA13. Lately I ben noticing flickering on the screen, now please mind you, I bought this model used so maybe the previous owner replaced the screen with a cheap brand, or just maybe, this is the original monitor just going bad.I looked up the LCD screen list and they have to many options without any explanation on what would the proper one would be. I know that my model it?s a 30-pin connection, but that?s all I know.Here is the list of options04X0529 CMI 15.6"FHD AG04X4064 Panasonic 15.5"FHD++ AG04X5480 AUO 15.6"FHD AG04X5500 LCD,ASM,FHD,AUO,CS04X5501 LCD,ASM,FHD,CMI,CS04X5502 LCD,ASM,FHD++,Panaso,CSSo, the question would be which one is the best one for my laptop?And what the heck this all means?Thank you for your help on this matter.

I've had the W541 for about 3.5 years now. I noticed that when I'm on battery, and the battery gets to about 50%, the screen starts to flicker. This issue does not happen when plugged in. I thought maybe it was a problem with the battery, but after trying a new one, the same problem occurs. It also occurs if I just boot into the BIOS, so I don't think any sort of Windows tweak will help. Any ideas?

We have 2 models that at some point during work stops working. It goes into a black screen, the network is down, but the fan is on and running, and it seems like the power is on aswell.We run Windows 7 Enterprise, all Lenovo drivers are up to date.Its only on the W540 and W541 we see this, the versions older than W540 works fine. Its the same windows configuration. Does anyone have any suggestions? its very frustrating.We tried: New Mainboard, New RAM, New Harddrive. The only thing we haven't tried is new screen on the hardware.Since it is a black screen there is no Log of why it isn't working. When the black screen appears the logging to drive stops!

Hi All! I have a problem that's driving me crazy - hope someone here can help me solve it. I have a W541 with Windows 10 installed and all updates, including latest feature pack. My TrackPoint has been behaving very strangely. The below details have proved consistent over 3 OS fresh installations:- After installation and before any reboots, TrackPoint takes some time to start working (10 - 15 mins), but eventually it works perfectly. Pointer, mouse buttons, middle button, everything works. Mouse control panel shows the TrackPoint checkbox enabled and checked.- After first reboot, it stops working. Mouse control panel shows the TrackPoint checkbox disabled and unchecked. BIOS configuration shows the TrackPoint should be enabled. No changes after installation of the latest drivers downloaded from the Lenovo support portal.- In Device Manager, under "Mice and other pointing devices", there is a "Synaptics Pointing Device". When I uninstall the driver for this device, the TrackPoint works, but without the middle button functionality, and no configuration in Control Panel. I am assuming this is Windows trying to interface with the hardware directly via generic drivers. Eventually, the drivers automatically re-install and TrackPoint functionality is lost again.- The strangest detail of all: while TrackPoint is not working in normal Windows 10 operation, it works if I lock the screen!! Once I login though, it stops working again.- The above 2 points are confirmation i... Read more

Hi, I received my W541 Thinkpad today. After a few hours of working I am actually pretty unhappy with the huge resolution of the IPS screen. Text is of course tiny with such a resolution on a relatively small laptop screen so I adjusted the font size in Windows to 125% and later to 150%. This makes the text readable in most cases, but it has quite a number of drawbacks that I had not fully anticipated. - In some programs, such as Chrome and some installer tools text is slightly blurred because of the scaling.- Text scales but icons and margins and paddings in program panels do not, so text is relatively large to its surroundings which makes programs and left-click menu's look cramped and weird.- Intellij (a Java IDE) is a tool that I use every day for hours. In Intellij I can't get the text 'right'. I can increase the font size of the program code, but it just doesn't look "nice". Besides that  I cannot get text in the Intellij console Window, such as Maven and Git output to scale so that is still tiny. Maybe there is some setting for this that I haven't found yet... [UPDATE] There is simply an option called 'console font' that lets me adjust the console font. This problem is solved... All in all the IPS screen is a bit of a disappointing experience. I will work on this machine every day for the coming 4/5 years, so it needs to be right. And it is just the screen. Other than that it is a fine machine with a very good build quality. What...

May sound like heresy, but might you consider an external monitor, like a 24" or 27" to support that high resolution?  If you are working from home, that seems possible.  Of course if you're on the road working and not at home, that's a different matter.
Can you not return/exchange the W541 from the vendor you bought it from?

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)

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.

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.

BCP4 B00000000

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.

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?

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.

Hi, I love the Yoga 2 Pro. But i have fews issues with it. Especially when used on battery. My screen flicker from time to time. The onyl fix i found was to close the lid to put the laptop to sleep and the reopen it. Not very convinient. An other issue I encounter is the screen blanking after a while when the computer is not in use. It's like the computer blank the screen to save battery power, but when you want to reuse it again, it won't start again. THe only fix is to hard reset the computer (eg : press 10s the power button) I am running a fresh clean install of Windows 8.1 Pro with all the Lenovo Drivers up to date (exept the BIOS one) If you could help me fix my issues. I think it's software related.Do you think i should put the BIOS update ? Does anybody ever try with a clean windows 8.1 install ? Thanks a lot,Romain

A Stop OX8E BSOD, is usually caused by hardware failure. Either it is faulty RAM or a bad PSU. Download Memtestand make a Boot disc out of that and boot off of the boot disc you created and run the tests. Test each RAM stick individually, by taking one out if you have more then one. Alos go into the Bios and check the voltages, temps and fan speeds and post here.

Hello, I contacted a local Lenovo service center in Nigeria where I am and was told by the company that they were unable to order the parts necessary to switch my screen from the company even though I am still covered by 7 more months my warranty for more than. This is unfair as I recently got my laptop (purchased, 28th Septemeber at a Best Buy in Houston while I was visiting for GHC) but I have been unable to use it in peace since I bought it because the screen started flickering almost immediately after. I took it to an authorised Lenovo service center where they confirmed that the screen does have issues that are not software related. They were, however, unable to get it from you guys. I need to use it for school and am already behind on so much because my laptop screen is giving me a hard time. I have the receipt that proves I bought it legitimately and even will provide you other details you might need to prove its purchase.  Please send me the parts I need? I need this screen fixed and it's unfair that I should have to spend $200 on a new screen when I should be getting it fixed for free. I don't mind handling how it gets shipped here but I need my screen fixed. PLEASE.  Buying this Lenovo has brought me nothing but headaches and I regret this decision.

The trackpad (from how it seems) causes Windows to switch to touch mode on the W541. What triggers touch mode?- Using the trackpad;- Unlocking the laptop. So why care if the W541 does not have any touch capabilities anyway?- Apps switch to touch mode which enlarges elements and makes work inefficient;- Websites switch to touch mode which makes certain web elements unusable;- The notifications button is moved off the screen for a while (see attachment);- The famous touch keyboard button shows up in the taskbar. What we have tried so far:- Updating all drivers provided by Lenovo;- Disabling tablet mode from Settings ? Tablet mode;- Disabling the Synaptics Pointing Device from Device Manager;- Disabling Human Interface Devices (even though nothing with ?touch? is listed here) from Device Manager;- Disabling all trackpad features from Synaptics. The way to work from the W541 is to use a mouse without ever touching the trackpad and to never lock the laptop which is ridiculous. Operating system: Windows 10 Enterprise (issue also confirmed on Windows 8)

Hi, My screen is flickering on and off and it is driving me nuts. This started a couple of months ago, but I haven't used my computer much (it had *so many* problems). However I can't opt out of using it now. The screen will go black and then flicker on. It seems to happen most when the charger is not connected. I know you are not supposed to leave the charger connected for long periods, but at the moment it seems to be doing better when it is plugged in. I think it is flickering because it thinks it needs to go to sleep? Or maybe the wires connecting to the screen are not good. This computer has never been good at detecting tablet vs. laptop mode, and rotating. Thus I haven't used it much for that. Recently I also tried to use it in the other mode, maybe that confused it.  Thanks. I got this in Nov 2014, apparently, and it is out of warranty.

I've even reset it back to its factory settings and the screen still flickers black. Not sure if its the problem with the laptop or something else.

I have a Nvidia GeForce 8800 GTS graphics card, Asus VW222 Monitor, Intel Core Duo 2 2.67GHz with 2 gig of Ram. Running Win 7

Every Since I loaded Win 7 and installed the graphic's card the monitor appears to not function correctly. Boots up in blue and black lines and yellow tint and if I'm lucky to make it through to the password screen and actually into the desktop, it is also yellow tint here and flicking flat out to the point where I can hardly see what is going on to turn it back off again.

I have trying swapping the graphic card over with another exact same model as mine, one my bother had and still have the same problem. I have checked to try? Any ideas!! Seems bizzar the monitor would flash now only when I have changed from Vista to Win 7, so I'm no overly convinced it would be the monitor as the problem?

I asked the boss' son (23 yr old who seems to know a lot about computers), and he says he doesn't see it flickering! I asked my boss and she said ask her son!

My screen at home is perfect, so it is not that my eyes have gone bad.

The screen at work looks almost like everything is concave (is that the right word?). Like the words are scooped in towards the computer instead of flat. I'm wondering if that is the problem, but I have no idea how to fix that.

What can I do to correct this problem? Can anyone help?

My computer has possibly been infected as it has started behaving strangely. Whenever I type on the keyboard, switch open windows, or open program, the screen flickers as if snapshots of the screen are being taken. At least, that is what it feels like. I have tried Sophos, Malwarebytes, AGV, Spybot, Kaspersky, and a few other programs, but the problem persists. THere are no unusual processes running in the task manager (at least nothing that I can detect as unusual).
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If it is not under warranty....re-seat the Video Card and blow the slot out before putting it back....

Also re-seat the monitor cables and check for any damage.

Re-install the video card drivers and chack for any updates

After loading the internet explorer version 9 beta I noticed some adds flicker and are not visible on my msn home screen. Some are also flickering and not visible. I am running Windows 7 Home Premium on an HP Pavilion Entertainment Laptop. I have uninstalled and re-installed Adobe Flash Player and tried to change the refresh rate (not possible on this machine). Some videos (news) play fine some (youtube) do not.
Does anyone have any suggestions?

A:Flickering on screen

I checked on a post about IE 9.0 and learned how to back out 9.0. This completely fixed the flickering problem so I think it definately was 9.0. I am staying with 8.0.
