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.

I bought an Hp notebook AU003TX..Second day of purchase I found my notebook's screen flickering and it was uncertain,it occurs may be one time or two times a day. Called the tech support no they told me to ON it in BIOS mode and it. was flickering in BIOS mode also so they said it's an hardware prblm we will send an engineer.Engineer arrived and in first half hr he said there is no prblm bt after some time flickering occurred and he said there may be some problem.I demanded DOA BT they denied and said there is no hardware issue drivers has to be updated so I got it replaced from my dealer and the previous notebook when checked drivers were already updated.Now after 4-5days again the same issue was found in my new notebook.Now service people says window or drivers has to be updated and these are already updated.They took the notebook and after two days returned saying there is no issue however the tech support says there is hardware problem as screen is flickering even in BIOS mode. The case has been closed and the problem is not solved yet.

I recently got a HP Pavilion Notebook 15-au018wm ( I7 @ 2.5ghz  w/ Nvidia Geforce 940Mx). Whenever I start playing any type of game be it hearthstone, World of Warcraft, or even Xcom 2(on Minimum settings) the screen flickers ever 4-5 seconds.  I tried updating the driver for the graphics card which didnt change anything.I tried a hard reset and made sure norton wasnt installed. I used the support assistant and made sure everything was updated.Ive tried mutiple games all at diff settings and it doesnt matter it still flickers.  Nothing has worked thus far - If i could get some assistance that would be great  Thanks!

This laptop is about 2 years old but I only used it for about one year. When I start to play music or anything that is video related, vertical lines appear. I can restart it, but if the movie of whatever is still playing it could start flickering again. If I leave it alone sometimes it will "Fix" itself, sometimes I will play with the screen or tap it and it go in and out. But basically it happens when there is some kind of player up like flash or a movie, and there are vertical white and blue lines, then the screen will go to black.
Yes I can plug it in to an external monitor, but i don't own one. And as a really cheap working student, I don't have the money to spend to take it in and pay for maybe...

What would be the best possible ways to fix this probplem as cheap as possible?

Thank You

I purchased a Pavilion 27xw monitor last week and began using it yesterday. I've immediately had this issue where the screen will flicker off and on for a second when I perform certain tasks such as scrolling through twitter. It does it every time I watch a video and close the media player. I know it's a problem with the monitor since I have never had this issue before. I bought this monitor to replace an older one that had failed. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

I recently purchased a HP Pavilion X360 and I have been having problems with the display. Unless the laptop is flat on a surface, the screen goes black/very dimmed (I can still ever so slightly see the picture still). It won't brighten back up until it's flat on a surface. As well as being a nightmare to use, I also can't use the tablet mode as it flicks off as soon as I go to turn it over. Is this is a setting or a faulty laptop/tablet? Thanks

Hi,Did you contact official HP technical support available free of cost since you're well within warranty? I think HP technicians can easily diagnose the exact issue.http://www8.hp.com/us/en/contact-hp/ww-phone-assist.htmlhttp://www8.hp.com/us/en/contact-hp/ww-contact-us.htmlWarranty check: https://support.hp.com/us-en/checkwarrantyHP support forum is not official technical support, since HP maintains no official presence here.We're just volunteers helping members troubleshoot issues.Did you connect the laptop to external monitor through HDMI cable and see if issue is persisting in the external monitor too?What about when you enter BIOS setup of the notebook by tapping F10 key as soon as you power on laptop - is it there?RegardsVisruth

Screen has been flickering all over. I'v read for some people that only small parts of the screen flicker but mine is completely flickering. It also has a slight purple tint to it and some lettering is almost pixle like. I dont know if its a worn out wiring connected to the LCD screen or maybe its just old. This labtop is about 3 years old and I did replace the screen a year ago for a completu unrelated reason. Thank you.

Try hooking it to an external monitor. See if the issues appear there. This will separate a screen problem from a video chip (motherboard) problem.

Hi everyone,
I have a HP Pavilion P6-2004nl with Windows 10 running on it. 
A couple of days ago i started up my computer, after a long loading screen it gave me a "Corrupted file" message.
Restarted and i never came further than a black screen after the BIOS with a flickering underscore.
I have two HDD's:
Samsung SSD 120GB (Probably windows 10 is installed on this drive, because when i only plug this one it gives the flickering underscore)
SATA HDD 2GB (Gives me a no bootable device found message when i only plug this in)
Anyhow on both harddisks my bootable USB with the windows 10 files installed on it wont boot. And in the bios it shows my Sandisk USB in the plugged drives but not in the boot-menu. 
I have Aptio 2.11.1210 BIOS with superlimited options and i have no idea how to boot the windows install disk from my BIOS.

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?

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

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.

A:LCD Monitor Flickering Issue

Read other 6 answers

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.

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...

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 have tested another monitor and a separate cord and I have determined the issue to be with the monitor it self.

Hello, guys, as you can see in the print screens I attached, sometimes it's impossible to read anything on my screen, so forgive me if I post this on the wrong forum.

Starting this afternoon I started having a weird display issue. I'm using Windows 7 64-bit (latest SP) on Bootcamp in a Macbook Pro 13' (model 2011). Now almost always the screen is rendered illegible by some weird pixelated noise and flickering, with parts of the screen content missing (see pictures attached). As I move the mouse/type on the keyboard, sometimes the text/icon/image/whatever I'm trying to visualize appears again, sometimes not. I wasn't using the latest Nvidia drivers when it started (was ignoring the Nvidia Experience message saying that updates were available). So I thought it was a problem of outdated drivers. I updated the drivers, rebooted the system and the problem persists. When I boot the system on Mac OS, the screen is fine.

I wonder if this is some kind of virus/malware. i ran an AVG scan but it said my system was clean. Thank you very much for your help.

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.

First of all hello from a new user, I have a problem with my computer but I need help to nail it down to one part (I think it's the graphics card, but who am I to tell).
A friend of mine said people over here are very nice and competent so why not try to get help here.

Long story short, I played a game, Velvet Assassin, that is rather buggy (I.e. it didn't let me change the resolution to my native 1680x1050).
After some time the screen started flickering in complete white with some color bars here and there. I thought it was another bug on newer systems and changed the resolution; the problem seemed resolved.

Until my little brother started to play Forge of Empires, that little browser game, where the problem again occured at an even faster rate.

I hope you can help me, I made a short video of the issue, I know it's not of best quality, but maybe it helps.
Thank you in advance

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

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.

hi, Today when i turned on my computer everything was fine. I used it for a short while and proceeded to put it in standby mode for about 1 hour or so, when i woke it from standby i immediately noticed that in the top right and bottom left corner the screen is flickering [as though i have set the refresh rate lower, but i have checked and it was not changed from 85hz] I am prone to migrains so i absolutely have to have the refresh rate set as high as possible to use my computer and it was never been a problem. The weird thing is that sometimes it stops flickering and goes back to normal, but that doesn't last long. I'm completely at a loss as to what is causing it as i didn't change anything between yesterday and today. I tried reinstalling my gpu driver with no luck, i've checked the cords and they are all plugged in correctly. My computer is by no means showing any different behaviour it runs just as good as always just this flickering. unfortunately i do not have another monitor so if anyone has any idea what this may be i would be very grateful. - Could it possibly be that the power cable from my monitor to plug socket is dying? It almost appears more as the corner of the screen is shaking slightly.

-UPDATE. My mothers room is right next to mine and i happened to go into her room and notice she had a heater directly on the wall separating our rooms so i turned it off [while the flickering was happening] and i moved it and so far i haven't experienced the flickering bu... Read more

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"

Back in October I started noticing flickering green pixels on dark backgrounds on my screen, the flickering green pixels, when they are present are always in the same place.

The first thing I did was buy a new DVI cable and then I ran it from the monitor to a different DVI port in back of the GPU. The issue seemed fixed but then a day later the intermittent green pixels came back, at that point I totally uninstalled the newer Nvidia drivers I had recently installed using DDU and installed the drivers I never had issues with which were from early 2014. After I did that the problem seemed gone and everything was fine until last month when I replaced my mouse. I noticed my mouse pointer had three black dots following behind it in a horizontal pattern. I then removed the Nvidia drivers from early 2014 and installed the most current Nvidia drivers, I believe they're from the 14th of December. After I did this the three black dots following behind the mouse pointer vanished but a week or two later, the intermittent green pixels came back.

1. The intermittent green pixels do not show up in screenshots, I've taken numerous screenshots of the screen when they are present but in the screenshots they are nowhere to be seen.

2. They're showing up more often lately.

3. They don't seem to show up when if I set the display to a lower resolution or when I'm in the bios screen.

A:Flickering Green Pixel Issue = Monitor Or GPU

Hello and welcome Deviancy now my first thought was the monitor may be going south but in view of the changes around you swapping cables and drivers and the fact that the card is five years old now makes me wonder if the card is going south.

Have you access to another monitor to see if the same thing happens?

Second it may as well to test that card with this FurMark: VGA Stress Test, Graphics Card and GPU Stability Test, Burn-in Test, OpenGL Benchmark and GPU Temperature | oZone3D.Net now this can put a fair bit of stress on the card so best run when you are nearby to check things like temps etc.

Hi,  I have a Lenovo Z50-70 laptop(GeForce 840m(4gb) and i7).  When I plug in my external monitor using VGA cable, it starts flickering and looks like its trying to auto adjust every 3-4 seconds. I have latest Intel HD and Nvidia display drivers installed. I tried to attach the same monitor to my old laptop and everything works fine, so its not cable or monitor problem. Also tried to remove laptop charger, changing display settings etc., and the problem still remains. No idea what else can I do to prevent this permanently.Interesting part: When I launch any game then flickering goes away. When I exit the game, flickering comes back. Its so weird. Thank you in advance for your help.

A:Lenovo Z50-70 external monitor flickering issue.

Check the output frequencies the monitor/display is getting. Either they're exceeding the display capability and/or the refresh freq is off, 60HZ is the norm for flat panel displays while some will handle higher up to 75HZ but only lower will be visible to the eye. The resolution may also be wrong as it may not be detected to set the correct resolution for that display as well.

I experienced screen freezing problem and overheating, I need to close and reopen the lid to make the mouse move.  I tried to resolve this issue by reinstalling the OS. Unfortunately, after reinstalling OS, I got a new issue: screen flickering. It happened just entering the windows and randomly when using. Screen freezing seems solved but the new issue comes. By the way, the keyboard still very hot though I am in a room with AC.

Hello, I have a Thinkpad x270 laptop running Windows 10.Laptop is connected to external DELL P2719H monitor through HDMI cable. Resolution is Full HD. I am using wireless keyboard and mouse.I have updated all the drivers in 2 steps - first, I did "Windows Updates", and then, second, I went through all devices in "Device Manager" in order to update all the remaining drivers.  Problem is the following -  my display has flickering issues. Generally it happens when I move the mouse. You can see this on the video below. Flickering on the video bellow happens when I go over the small video built-in into the website. This happens couple of times per day. I thought that it might be caused by wireless mouse or HDMI cable or Display, but my testing showed thata) similar flickering issues sometimes happen with mouse turned OFF and disconnected from the laptop andb) I don't experience such issues with the same HDMI cable, same DELL P2719H display, but with different laptop running Windows 7. So I think it might be caused by x270 or Windows 10 problems. What are your thoughts? What troubleshooting steps could be made?

I still can't use my touchpad.  I've tried driver updates, checked f6 but still nothing.  Due to the limited number of usb ports I need the touch pad to work.  Even when the touchpad is not turned off (f6) there is no synaptics drives listed in device manager.  Even when I run Lenovo's system check for upadate it does not identify that it is missing.  Also, from what I can tell there isn't even a serivce listed in Computer Management for the touchpad / synaptics. Please provide me with a solution as quickly as possible.  Thank you.  Peter D

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?

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 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.

A:Dell 7559 screen/display flickering issue

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.
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.
