Second HP Omen 17 with Screen Flicker + Color Bleed on edge

Q: Second HP Omen 17 with Screen Flicker + Color Bleed on edge

This is my second HP Omen, the first one I purchased was returned within two weeks for the exact same issue. My laptops screen is flickering in a strobe light fashion and this is the exact same issue I fully returned the last laptop for. A reboot does not seem to have any effect leaving me to heavily believe this is a hardware not a software related issue.The screen will flicker and around the edges there are very distinct Red then Blue then Green color lines circling the outer edge. They are usually only clearly visible on dark backgrounds. After about 5-10 minutes the flickering will stop the color will fade and the laptop functions normally. Thankfully I caught the first one within the two week window to return it but I am JUST out of that window this time around so it looks like I'm out of luck for a simple solution.To top it off the reason I bought this laptop was to replace my desktop PC as I'm moving to Japan less than a week from now so there's no more time for me to be running around to stores and I didn't want to haul a full desktop setup with me although now I'm not sure this expense was a good decision.My phones camera syncs with the flickering so the video I have doesn't show much but the pictures I've taken of the color bleed are pretty clearly a problem. It was plenty that when I brought the first one in I got a replacement almost immediately after they saw them. Nothing that I've found yet will replicate the issue 100% other than time. Given enough time it will occur but no amount of resets or power saving mode or anything else will cause it to occur.

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.)

I forgot to add, the first laptop I uninstalled all of the HP bloatware and I left the BIOS version at its default. This laptop however I did the opposite, I left all the bloatware on the machine and I updated the BIOS to the latest version supplied on the HP Omen 17 downloads page on the HP website.The only other thing I've updated thus far is the sound drivers as I'm also having an issue where using VOIP software my voice goes very robotic and the software has to be reset. This exact issue has also occurred on both laptops using a microphone that does not have this issue on any other device.

Hi,I have this annoying persistent flicker and bleed/stain on my screen and it is visible in any application. It is most visible in grey color background. I already updated bios and drivers but still have the issue. Anyone knows of any fix? I would want to have this brought in for repair via warranty, though that would be my least preferred option due to inconvenience. Hope anyone here could shed light on this.  Kicks

This model has a major Screen Bleed issue.I got two replacements, but no good.It looks like this model has a common issue with its screen.Now I have no choice but to live with it. I owned two laptops previously from other vendors. None of them ever had such issue.This is the first time I bought a high end product. And guess what, I am disappointed.I wish you had a much tighter quality control at your end. You had cut cost in usb-c port.But screen should not be compromised. When you call it a high end product, you should not expect the consumer to deal with such basic issue.How can we trust you in future? Hope it reaches to the concerned department and they take some positive steps to amend their ways.

Using a Dell XPS One 2710 with Windows 10 Pro. Works perfectly well unless i expand any window to full screen at which point the screen goes crazy. Rapid flickering begins within 1-2 minutes and progresses to an infinite number of multi-color vertical lines flickering and rolling. Once that begins there seems to be no escape; however, if I catch it and reduce the screen to less than full size before the vertical lines begin the computer continues to hum along in a normal fashion. Any thoughts or recommendations?
 
Thanks.

Hi all first post here so hello , basically the problem i have is with clear type on i have a red color bleed around the edge of some text, anyone know how to fix it? I used the desktop with segoe ui light font and with clear type off theres is close to no red around the edge of text with it on text is smoother and clearer but with red around the edge of it, only faint but noticeable.

This wouldn't bother me as when using the standard win7 font, it is not noticeable really at all using windows programs and stuff but when using firefox it is quite noticebale.

On the left is firefox 4 config page, where it is particularly noticeable, second in is me typeing the most affected word, accessibilty, and on the far left is me typing the same word with cleartype off.

As you can see on firefox the color bleed is very clear, typing within in windows is noticeable but faint and with cleartype off it is non -existent but text is harder to read, any ideas?

May Help To englarge the image btw

Hello,I just purchased a HP OMEN 17.3" gaming laptop with 4k display screen and backlit keyboard and was under the impression that the lighting for the keyboard can be adjusted to suit my preferences, but I don't even see the HP OMEN CONTROL software installed.   I would like to know if the keyboard lighting is able to be changed or am I stuck with the default bright red color, and if it is not able to be changed, will that be a future option that can be done with a software upgrade or by downloading HP OMEN CONTROL? Any suggestions you may have would be much appreciated... Thanks! ---scott

Hello.  So I have been searching and searching for 3 hours now on how I can change the color of my keyboard on the HP Omen 15-AX033DX. I purchased this from Best Buy today with the impression that I could have the option of changing the keyboard colors. I really don't like the bright red, but I want to have some lights though instead of just completely ignoring such a cool little feature. Just to make things clear, this laptop came with Windows 10 as I just got it today. Almost all of the forum posts that I've seen regarding this topic are from people who had the windows 8.1 version of the HP Omen, but those don't apply to me. Anyways, I just don't know what to do.  I already installed the HP Omen Control Software which did not do anything to my keyboard. I even installed the latest HP software event utility from this link that has all of the drivers for my version of the HP Omen: http://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/selfservice/omen-by-hp-15-ax000-laptop-pc/10862325/model/1192658... Thing is, I don't see any driver on that website that allows me to change colors on the keyboard. Could someone please help me out here?

I just bought a brand new Pavilion X360 Convertible 15-bk193ms Signature Edition 2 in 1 and the bottom corners of the screen bleed from the backlight display. Is this fixable without losing my laptop for months sending it back for repair? I know it can't be solved with any adjustments that are available on board, and it can't be a driver or software issue. Here's hoping for a quick fix response but judging from other threads and posts I've seen that is wishful thinking. I believe in HP products and unlike most others I love Windows. Keep me feeling that way please and help me fix this. Thank you. (This is the 4th HP I've had and the first with problems)

It's on the right side just off the corner and on the left side that has a hard edge of light bleed and its pretty wide. ( it also changes depending on viewing angle ) Whould like to know what the vets think as this is my first lenovo.After paying what i did, i would expect no bleeding at all. Not really wanting to send it back just to get another one with the same problem or have someone come rip the screen apart to install another one that might have the same problems. what you do guys think?Any help is appreciated!

Yours is far better. Mine had more bleeding than this. Area to watch for is bottom left. Reported to Premier support. Waited three weeks, LCD was back-ordered, two times panels replaced, bleeding issued persisted. Now they are sending me new replacement. No point in calling for this, as my problem got worse. The replaced LCD part had stuck pixels. If the bleeding is affecting you and if you are within the return window return the laptop for refund/replacement. I am past 30 day return window, good thing about Premier Support is they escalated and they are sending me a new replacement unit.

Since I got my laptop there has been a problem with screen backlight bleed in the bottom left-hand corner of the display. It is clearly noticeable when in a dark environment, showing dark content on the screen or when the screen brightness is turned up high, however, it is not that noticeable in normal use. Lenovo has offered a repair but I am interested in hearing whether people think this is worth it. I am worried that after the inconevience of backing up all my data and sending my laptop away, the repair will not make much difference to the issue, as it affects nearly all laptops so some degree. Does anyone have any experience with getting this kind of issue repaired and if so was it worth it?

I spent a lot of money on this and if something's wrong with it I wanna return it and exchange it while I can.So the problem I'm having is the screen.

Well i had some time yesterday to sit down and mess with the laptop and changed my wallpaper and it's a black wallpaper well I noticed the top left and right corners of the the screen there is some fade to yellow or white at the corners. So would this be IPS glow or back light bleed? I tried to take a good picture it's a little more noticeable in person but this is close. Also another question.

I just ordered a Dell Inspirion 15 7577 on the black friday sale (11/24/17) and, before anything, I'd like to say that Dell did a fantastic job on this model. Great thermal management, stunning graphics and highly solid and durable chassis. I am in love with this laptop.
But unfortunately, my screen did come with some backlight bleeding from the start and some clouding. It is not noticeable when gaming, except when I go into a dark area. But it is there and I cannot seem to ignore it.
I have ran the color tests (power button + D) and they are not noticeable then, but are very noticeable on a black screen.
What are my options and next steps?
Many thanks.

P.S. I am attaching a photo of my screen. The bleed is in the upper-mid section of the screen. And the clouding is most apparent on the upper-left and upper-right corners.

Hi there,

Sorry about the title I wasn't sure how to put it.

My newly built computer seems to have an issue with either the graphics card or the monitor or both and i am not sure which. The three problems I have are the windows aero animations have gone into slow motion as if the GPU can't handle them (it is the same for games) Also the monitor sometimes randomly goes blank while I am using the computer (most often when something graphically intense comes on screen) When I say 'go blank' I mean the desktop dissapears off the monitor but the monitors back-light is still on, I think is the computer crashing but can't tell because the monitor isn't showing anything. Finally the colors sometimes bleed in certain areas. Here is a demonstration of the bleeding. http://i41.tinypic.com/jkc183.png

What confuses me is that my monitor has different issues when plugged into my mums mac but still doesn't work properly. Also my mums monitor works fine in her mac but I still have all the same problems above when it is plugged into my pc.
Here is my PC spec:

Intel Core i5 2500 @ 3.30GHz
ATI Radeon HD 6870
MSI Motherboard H61
8GB RAM (all being detected correctly)
Corsair CX500 PSU
Seagate Barracuda 1TB
LiteOn IHAS124 24x
Here are the drivers I have:

My monitor (Novatech 24" Widescreen LCD Monitor Full HD) - I can't find any drivers
Mums monitor (Dell SE198WFP) - Driver version 1.0.0.0
ATI Radeon HD 6870 - Driver version 11.12
Thanks in advance

A:Blank Screen, Slow Motion and Colour Bleed. GPU Failure?

First thing to check is to make sure that the GPU is properly seated all the way as well as the rest of the hardware. Next would be to make sure that you have both 6 pin power connections connected and seated all the way. Thirdly, making sure that you have the latest driver installed and finally checking to make sure you that have the native resolution set correctly.

Hi,

So, when I am using the Windows lock screen, especially when I am not currently signed in, Windows tends to set my lock screen accent color to purple, much like my wife's account on the computer. She has chosen a purple accent color for her account, which is fine, except that mine is red. Now, this is not really a huge issue, as everything is normal once I have logged in, but the fact that everyone else's account is normal and it isn't assigning that color to any other accounts is extremely annoying. I've just been dealing with it for the past few months and I'm just tired of it.

Does anyone have any possible solutions to this? Or maybe an explanation as to why this would be happening? Thanks.

Hello,

I'm updating a friend's computer. It already came with Windows 8.1. It's an Asus Transformer T100.

I have this strange problem. Normally, the screen has the correct color and brightness. However, whenever I'm using Windows Mail (Windows 8 app), the screen will change to this yellowish/grayish hue or tint. I switch to another app or a desktop program and the screen returns to normal. Only with this app do I have this problem!

I went to color profiles and management to see if it was a setting. I'm not very familiar with color profiles so I didn't do anything. I did run the screen calibration utility. No fix.

I turned off adaptive brightness.

It's just Windows 8 Mail that has the problem!

A:Windows 8 Mail changes screen color.color profile problem?

I found out what's the problem is.

Asus has a utility called Asus Reading Mode or something like that. You can add apps to that list and any apps on that list will cause the screen to change color to make it more readable I suppose. You can disable the feature by flipping the toggle switch in the app. Then all the apps will maintain the correct screen color.

Hi dear yoga fellows. After tossing and troubling with how to fix my black screens and flickering that mostly accured on battery mode when the laptop is dissconnected from the charger, i have finally found a solution that actually WORKS:1st thing, either contact lenovo online/via phone and ask to be emailed all the latest drivers for you machin, including the latest Nvidia and Intel graphic drivers available. (you can also use intel's website for that matter and lenovo bridge)2nd, once you have all drivers ready, install one by one and with each install finished RESTART MACHINE. yes, little hustling but im prevents software conflicts.3rd, Once done with all the driver install and reboots, go to intel graphics control panel by clicking right mouse click on your desktop. there, go to POWER > ON BATTERY and DISABLE Panel Self Refresh. By now youre suppose to have your flickering and black screens fixed.  if that is not the case than go ahead and tap windows button and type "edit power plan" > "change advanced settings" > "display" > "enable adaptive brightness" and turn off on battery or for both. Hope this solved your problem - please comment and let me know  SHIRAN

I'm not sure if this is where I should be posting this. I have a laptop and whenever I take it to class, it is running off of the battery. only when it is running of the battery do I get this random thing on my computer where the screen goes black twice for just a split second. It's almost like it is blinking. It usually only does one set of two "blinks" each time that I unplug it and go to class. I wasn't sure if this is something I should be worried about or not. It never does it when I am plugged in. It is not an issue of low battery as it can happen when I have 80-90% remaining or it can happen when it is low around 20%. It does not happen every time. Any ideas or thoughts about this would be appreciated.

And I also have this thing when I turn my computer off (Again, not every time) where sometimes it will say it's shutting down something called Shell Icon hidden window...is this a bad thing to see?

having a problem with my lg 700s studioworks monitor, it wasn't flickering that much before i got this registry mechanic download, i clicked tune up, and i tried the recommended and minimal options, and then tried to restore it the way it was, (didnt even think about the monitor acting up) but i still have the problem now, and am without the cd, so i forget what the default settings are for this monitior with this hard drive, just wondering, what can be done about my problem to make it flicker less/ none perhaps..lol..could there be any default info somewhere for this setup?...(like i said it could be a problem specifically somewhere in the registry, permanent damage or something..not 100% sure if its a registry issue tho either) any help would be a plus!

thanks!

i go this card when ccc versions were in the 10's, i updated it to the 11's when they came out and ever since then one of my screens flickers i can get them to switch screen flickers from screen to screen by changing 60hz to 75hz but cannot get it to go away all together. now the one thing about this is i have ccc disabled on startup. at start up i have no problem but as soon as i start ccc it will flicker. if i manually close the program it keeps the flickering until restart. it doesnt just constatly flicker but durring game play it does or scrolling up and down on a web page. if you know of a fix or something to try please let me know. i just installed 12.1 and no change.

just checked and only happens when ccc is over clocked

hi you say it only happens when the settings in the ccc are ticked to overclock? i have seen this problem from other users/forums and they all UN-TICK the overclock box and then the flicker stops. so if you don't really need this function on when using the pc don't use it mine is turned off and it does not affect my games when i am playing them.

Recently my screen has been flickering every so often. I first noticed it playing some video games, but I thought it was a graphics setting. Now it seems to be happening while reading on Firefox. Is this a problem with my graphics card? It's a Radeon HD 5500.

Try changing your graphics card refresh rate. Make sure that your monitor and the card are within eachothers' compatibility range, ideally as close as possible.

Verify XP installed the correct driver for your graphic card. If it is, try adjusting the refresh rate.

Over past two days noted a flicker on screen, notably in top bar area of FF and in a game, Not constant but there occasionally.

Nvidia GeForce GTX 750ti on 24 inch iiyama flat screen

wonders if anyone after recent update applied?

Is it the monitor doing something weird? This happened to my neighbor a few weeks ago. It turned out to be a bad monitor. Also, what cord are you using to connect your display to your desktop? (Displayport, VGA, HDMI, etc)
Is the cord twisted? I doubt it's a twisted cord. Maybe a setting in the game itself or it's just part of the game and you just never noticed it. (Again, I doubt that's the cause too.)

What's the game you've been playing?

I have the same problem. I am afraid it might be something serious. Have you managed to solve your problem somehow? My laptop is also one year old. I have not installed anything yet.

It just started today. Windows XP Pro, office 2003, Firefox three, lots of RAM, plenty of hard drive space, Dell precision 390 about one year old.

The image on the screen flickers like it's being reloaded several times a second. Additionally, the mouse is not responsive.

After using Alt F4 when I reload the program (Outlook or Firefox) it is stable for a period of time.

Where should I begin to locate the source of the problem?

Thank you
