Y700-15ISK screen flickering and graphical glitchi...

Q: Y700-15ISK screen flickering and graphical glitchi...

Back in September, I purchased a Y700-15ISK laptop, and up until about ten days ago I had no problems with it whatsoever. However, that changed when the screen started flickering intermittently. Initially, I wasn't too concerned, but when I turned my laptop on the following day, the problem became a lot more extreme. On this occassion, the screen flickered so wildly during the boot-up process, that I had great difficulty logging in. It was only after I'd rebooted my laptop several times, that it became stable enough to use normally. Over the next few days, the flickering became less frequent, but instead I started experiencing graphical glitching in the form of jagged little white lines which seemed to be triggered mainly by dark colours. Since then, I've had another awful session where the flickering has made my laptop unusable, and a couple more sessions where I've mainly been affected by the glitching. I regularly experience the glitching whilst the Lenovo logo is displayed during the boot-up process, and when I access the BIOS, so I assume I'm dealing with a hardware problem as opposed to a Windows 10 problem. Nevertheless, I did update my drivers, but this made no difference. The one thing I haven't tried is updating my BIOS. I'm still on CDCN28WW, but I'm aware that the latest version is CDCN52WW. The reason I'm hesitant to update is because the problems are usually at their worst when I boot-up or reboot my laptop, and I'm worried about what would happen when the laptop reboots during the BIOS update. For instance, there have been occasions when the screen has flickered and then gone blank during the boot-up process, thus forcing me to press and hold the power button to shut down the machine. But if this happened during a BIOS update, wouldn't I be at risk of bricking my laptop? Does anyone have any suggestions (aside from updating the BIOS) that could solve this problem, or should I take it back to the shop from which I purchased it (John Lewis in the UK) and see what they suggest?

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.

OS: 64-bit Windows 10I bought this laptop December 2015 and it has a limited 2 year warranty. I was using it today like any other day but all of a sudden the screen started to flicker. I think it happened when I used the "show desktop" option. It minimized all the windows but the screen began flickering/flashing (kind of like when the screens refresh rate is not right) and the edges of the screen had a sort of ghost image. The screen does not flicker on and off. It stays on but the I guess you could say the brightness flickers high and low. A restart cleared the ghost image but the screen still has that flashing effect.I swear System Restore was active but it's not turned on so going back hoping for a random fix isn't an option. I doubt it will help but I will try updating my drivers.

Hey! Got myself a brand new Yoga 910 and installed the latest BIOS update to fix the fan noise issue: http://support.lenovo.com/se/sv/products/laptops-and-netbooks/yoga-series/yoga-910-13ikb/downloads/d... However, immediately after installing the update, the screen started having graphical glitching issues with artifacts flickering on the screen all the time. For example, if I'm on my desktop, I have the Trashcan and Spotify icon at the top of my desktop, and I will see "ghosts" of these icons flickering over the lower half of the screen. I tried updating the graphics driver to the latest version but it didn't help: http://support.lenovo.com/se/sv/products/laptops-and-netbooks/yoga-series/yoga-910-13ikb/downloads/D... The graphical artifacts that flicker on the screen seem to be based on what content I have on the screen currently. The computer was fine when I got it. My exact process has been: Getting the computer, everything is fineRunning Windows UpdateUsing the computer, everything is fineDownloading and installing latest BIOS updateNoticing flickering which never was there before the BIOS updateRestarting computerInstalling Intel DriverRestarting Computer But it's still flickering all the time. Needless to say this makes the laptop unusable.

Hi, I got the y700 last year in october or so and its been working fine, but now ever since I updated the laptop the screen keeps flickering black and I'm unable to click or do anything on it other than go to task manager. 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 tried some of the other solutions that people have, but either it doesn't work or the files that people are talking about I can't seem to find them. Not sure what to do.

Are you even aware that You have released next generation of laptops with the same issue that the previous one had?!?!? How is it even possible theese days?!?! Do You even know by now what is the cause of it?Now i have to say bye bye to my 1200 euro machine, send it to service and wait for it about two weeks!  I'm very, very dissapointed. I've bought this computer because my previous Lenovo Y550 runs perfectly for over 6 years now.I'm affraid that it's my last ever Lenovo product. Shame...

Hello Lenovo,It seems that several people have the same problem with blinking screen, so, I think, we deserve to hear some reply about this issue and maybe a solution it? I'm not new to lenovo products and was using them for many years so I was confident bying this quite expensive laptop. (I've bought it in Poland too by the way, and now I'm in Ukraine, so I'm not sure how much it will cost to send it back, that is very disappointing as well).So please give us some info on how this problem can be fixed, maybe driver/BIOS updates, or something else... Thanks.

Can you be a little clearer with your issue. From what I can gather, you're having problems with the brightness of your screen f right? Most issues like yours can be fixed/managed in settings menu. Go to display and find the brightness that suits you. Hope this helps. This is the best I could come up with based on how you asked your question.

Hi Everyone, I found 2 air bubbles in the top right corner of my Y700-15ISK's screen.First I thought that it was under the screen protecting foil but it rather seems to be under the glass.I have never seen such faulty display before. The problem occured on the very last day of the warranty period but I could file the claim only today, 2 weeks later when I realized that more bubbles appeared, now there 10 air bubbles.Now I wait for feedback from Lenovo. Is there anyone with such issue?

Hello everyone, I bought a Lenovo YOGA 500 15 15ISK  only a few days ago and today I had finally the time to unbox it and turn it on.I have to say I was quite impressed with the design and how light the laptop is. However, my good impressions pretty much stopped there. Upon loging in windows (laptop comes with Windows 10 preinstalled) I came across a painful screen flickering and a problematic mouse pointer movement (both with the mouse and touchpad). When I carried out an initial google search I was shocked with the number of people that had similar problems to mine, literally thousands!I have a good day trying to sort out the screen flickering (I have fixed the mouse pointer movement) and eventhough I found a couple of suggestions and solutions that initially worked, the problem returned after a few minutes. Furthermore, when I was browsing a webpage and then moved on to a new one I could see an imprint of the previous page, as if the previous letters were imprinted on the monitor. I have also experienced 4 times in about 6 hours a lovely black screen (dark grey actually) where the only option was to switch the power off after a few minutes in order to manage to get the screen to work again.My first comment is that I find it discraceful that a company sells a product in such state, especially since the problem is well documented by thousands of user.

How did you fix the mouse problem!? I bought the same computer and had these same problems.  I found the display driver issue online (screen flickering, seems to be be avoided if using Chrome instead of Edge or Firefox).  That was annoying but the biggest problem was the mouse.  With the trackpad or an external mouse (with updated drivers or rolling back) the issue persisted.  The problem can be described as the mouse not moving in a fluid motion, constantly getting stuck for just a small period, appearing jumpy or sticky.  It was incredibly frustrating.  I returned the laptop assuming it was defective, however the replacement unit had the same problem.  The problem only started after the computer performed its first Windows Update.  So I removed the security update (Windows wouldn't let me remove all the other updates), and the problem vanished.  However, a day later it did more updates and the problem was back.  Since I couldn't find documentation online, I wasn't aware if a fix was even being planned.  For a brand new laptop, it was pretty appaling.  It's a shame, because I like my old Lenovo laptop. On a side note - there are related problems with the Surface Pro 4 and Surface Book, so it might just be an Intel Graphics HD 520 / i5-6200U problem.  But at this point, I don't want a Lenovo OR any other laptop with that processor...

I recently bought this laptop and I have two problems:1. Especially when the screen is black, there is a green light on the upper part of the screen. I don't know what causes it maybe a led or something is installed badly (it's a 5 cm² area). Should I take it back and ask for a new one?2. This problem is related to scaling. When it is set to 100%, everything is small but crystal clear. When at 150%, everything looks normal but some apps like Steam, BitTorrent... are blurry like they were just zoomed on. Reinstalling windows and drivers should solve this? Simply reinstalling drivers didn't help.Thanks!

A:Lenovo Y700-15ISK screen issues

I don't know anything about your first problem (it may be a hardware problem), but I do know something about the second. Some programs (Steam, for example) aren't made for high-dpi screens. for these programs that appear blurry, right click on their icon (on the desktop), and click properties. Under the compatibility tab, check "Disable display scaling on high DPI settings". This should work after you restart the program.

I thought they were mostly glossy but I saw this video on youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fOmVjyZazGo which seemed to show a newer model with a matte screen. And there aren't any websites that show you the type of finish.

A:Y700-15ISK matte or glossy screen?

sgcyrus wrote:I wanted to know if the screen was matte or the glossy version covered with the anti-glare coating.I think that this may vary from one country to another.  I have an Ideapad 500-15ISK that has a glossy screen, but I read a review online from a European reviewer, and his version had a matte screen. There are many different combinations of components that the manufacturer can use for each model.  But the Lenovo importer in each country won't stock every possible combination.  Instead, the marketing staff in each country will spec two or three models that they think will sell best in their country, and that is all that the importer will stock.  So some countries may sell versions with glossy screens, while others sell versions with matte screens. Look at the detailed specs for the model that you are thinking of purchasing, and (if possible) try to view it at your local retailer (which is what I did, so I was not surprised by the presence of a glossy screen). -- from CyberSimian in the UK

I was going on a train, so i turned off my laptop to get it in my backpack. When i tried to boot it in the train, the screen was not turning on. It stayed like that. I've tried many things (battery drain, bios update and else) but it just doesn't work. I can plug in an external monitor an it is just fine. I'm just reminding you that the screen is OFF, it doesn't show anything through the bootup and in the windows. The external monitor is considered as a main one, and i can go to bios through it. I really don't know what happened, and i couldn't find any way to fix it in the internet. So i ask, do you know the problem ? If yes, then can i do something besides just sending it to service ?

So I bought this new laptop two weeks ago and now I've had 3 times this same blue screen error. It comes totally without warning, supposedly the reason is the Intel HD Graphics 530's driver which I am going to now clean install totally as it gives me this warning that the software hasn't been confirmed by the manufacturer or some crap. Really expected a lot more from Lenovo, this is now my 2nd laptop from them after I succesfully used up the last one (the power port started disconnecting, I guess too much damage from movement).

Windows 10 have been downloaded and installed again. That is, at the time of the fix I was not factory Windows, preloaded with drivers and software from Lenovo. Do not install software from Lenovo as this too can cause flickering in the model. You can put only the necessary drivers for the chipset, Nvidia graphics card, touchpad, camera and also to update the BIOS, worse than this model of laptop data items do not. The fact that the problem is related to the function of power-saving integrated graphics card (1 watt savings lol). This function was why removed it out of the panel Intel HD GRAPHICS, but some utilities, Lenovo is present and it can cause flickering. peace <3

I bought my Y700-15ISK on 24/06/16 and within an hour or so of use the screen went black and the computer didn't seem to respond to anything (except toggling the keyboard backlight with Fn-space). The computer itself did not shut down as indicated by the keyboard lights. This kept repeating itself several times at seemingly random intervals and the computer would only return to normal after a hard shut down by holding the power button and power back up again. I've seen several other complaints on the forums regarding this problem, one of which was tagged as solved and contained a broken link to Lenovo's solution.

I looked on the solution, but they didn't solved my problem. Under this link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rK7n2SJIDzU line is fully visible. Vsync option was on in the game as well as in the nVidia control panel. I've seen this line in more games, but in this one it always appears. When screenshot is taken, there is no line on it, so it's not badly drawn frame. Should I send it in for repairs under warranty? Thank you for any help.

I got this laptop from Lenovo.com a month back and this is the second time it had creashed saying a SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION out oif nowhere. It's not that I have made this machine run at high loads either, it's just been regular light loads of photoshop and browsing and I thought I could use this $1300 machine for modelling and all. Truly disappointed with this kind of service after my first Thinkpad lasted for 6 years. I do have an extended waranty with accidental protection but I certainly hope that this issue can be fixed before I have to invoke it, since there is a hell lot of work I intend to complete before my graduation in the next few months. Hope the service people from Lenovo are there to help out.Thank you for your support, which I expect would not be as worse as this product.

Hi, I bought my Ideapad Y700 in December 2015, so it's half year old. Warranty is 2 years after entering S/N on Lenovo website. Please only reply to this if you are form Lenovo support. Question: Will opening back lid of the laptop to check for connection between screen and rest of the laptop void my warranty ? I suspect it's a cable that got lose, but I would like to be sure if it's worth even checking. Is it ok to open screws to have a look inside or will that void my warranty ? Additional information: Screen blinks even when booting, before operating system and also in BIOS. So it really looks like hardware problem.

Lenovo sent me another laptop, this one arrived 20 days ago and now has problem too. The machine was working fine, I restart it and the screen keep black, the keyboard was on but the screen doesn?t show anything. After 2 min and nothing, I shut it down and I realize that the laptop doesn?t display the Lenovo logo, doesn?t show anything again, the hard disk indicator is off, it doesn?t blink. I try to recovery the system using ?Lenovo OneKey Recovery System? or try to enter to the BIOS, but the Lenovo Novo Button only start the laptop, doesn?t show the menu. The laptop restart and the keyboard blink but I can turn it on, I can?t access to the PC, I can't see anything! Here is the Machine Info:Lenovo Ideapad Y700-15ISKModel: 80nvMTM: 80NV005FUSMO: PF9XB5B09117Factory ID: JVHFC1 Two different machine and both got problems before first month, Is there something wrong with the Ideapad Y700 model?How can I solve my problem?Any advice?

Yes, there is something wrong with this model. A lot of other people have had the same issue where the laptop will no longer boot after a long sleep or shutdown. There is a BIOS update that is being released sometime by the end of the month to fix this issue. I do not know if Lenovo has a USB flash function, but if they don't you should probably exchange for another or wait for the BIOS update, so that you can flash the new BIOS as soon as you get the replacement.

Computer Specs:Processor: Intel 6th Gen Quad Core i7-6700HQ @2.60GHzGPU: nVIDIA GTX 960M w/ 2GB DDR5 VRAMMemory: 16GB DDR4 RAMHard Drive: 1TB HDD + 512GB SSD  Hello,I received a Y700 Touch 15ISK as a replacement for another Lenovo computer that broke under warranty. After about a day and a half of use, I decided to try attaching it to my External monitor (a 23" 1920x1080p monitor by Acer) which I had used with multiple other computers with no issues. As soon as I plug it in, my screen turns completely black. I waited a few seconds for something to happen, Nothing. Neither screen shows anything. I hook up my desktop to the same monitor, and it works fine.  I can hear sounds, like the sound of an Administrative confirmation, or a external device being plugged in. Therefore, I know the computer itself is still functional. However, I cannot get any image at all.  Things I have tried:Fn+F2 to check that the backlight was not turned off (Also flashed a light on the screen, and got nothing)Fn+F3 to try and see if I had the computer on external monitor only. This also showed nothing. Hard reboot (holding down power key): Nothing. Even the POST screen did not show.   I called Lenovo and they are taking forever as normal to do anything. I just had to go through a 7 week warranty claim for my previous computer, and the one they send me breaks almost as soon as I get it.  Has anyone else had this issue? Are there any basic ...
