Lenovo Helix 2 - flicker of display

Q: Lenovo Helix 2 - flicker of display

Please, could you help me, I have the problem with display. The laptop was obtained from the repair with the re-installed OS Windows 10. I noticed that sometimes there is the flicker on the monitor, which makes the eyes very tired. Flicker can be seen, for example, on a gray background. The drivers for all devices are installed, as well the latest OS updates. I tried to reinstall the OS on Windows 8.1 and noticed that there was no flicker until I installed the graphics driver (all the drivers were installed from the Lenovo website). Please could you tell me how to solve the problems with the flicker on the screen?

Got this message from the customer service it worked for me I hope it will help The symptoms you have described indicate an error that may have been caused by a slight surge of tension. Therefore, a residual current discharge is necessary. This discharge eliminates residual currents in the internal components of your notebook. Please carry out the following steps so that the device is ready for use as soon as possible: 1. Turn off your notebook.2. Now disconnect all devices from your notebook (printers, scanners, hard disks).3. Also remove the memory card in the card reader when plugged in.4. Connect the power cable to the device.5. Now press the NOVO button (on the side of your notebook or next to the power button, curved arrow to indicate) and select the bios.6. Remove the power supply again.7. Now let the notebook run in the BIOS until it shuts itself off8. Now hold down the power button on the notebook for about ten seconds.9. Next, plug the power cord back into the device and allow the battery to charge.10. Now you can turn the notebook on again. Experience has shown that the notebook now works perfectly again

Hi everyone, I have recently purchased an IdeaPad 320-15 IKB and i'm experiencing some weird flickering of the display. The problem is that I don't think it's a hardware issue, because starting windows in Safe Mode solves it. As you can imagine, I cannot use the laptop in safe mode  Has anybody experienced this behaviour and are there any fixes? Drivers i could install/uninstall? Software i should check? My main concern is determine the cause of this.  What i tried until now: uninstalling and reinstalling Intel/Nvidia drivers, applied a display flicker fix from Norton (even though i'm using Bitdefender) - i know... but desperate times - and i ran out of ideas. I would get it to an authorised service, but as i said before, chances are it's not a HW issue. Thanks

Hello! I have had this problem for a LONG time now, and it is getting very frustrating now. Whenever my screen has a large area of a dark color, my whole display begins to glitch out and flicker. Not only do I have this problem, but there is a problem where there are pink and green areas covering places where it shouldn't be, if that makes any sense, I don't know how to explain it. I have tried so many ways to fix it, but none have worked. I had reinstalled my drivers MULTIPLE times, I had sent it back to Lenovo for repairs, I had unplugged some cables that people had said would fix it, but still, the problem still persists. I do not know what could fix this, and it is so aggravating! It seems like everyone who had this issue as well can never get it fixed either, and their thread gets suppressed and never to be heard from again... any help is appreciated at this point, I can't even bear to look at my laptop screen anymore because the flashing and flickering irritates my eyes. This seems like a problem with ALL y510p's, and I don't understand why anything can be done about it. Thanks in advanced.

I have a Lenovo Helix 2 with docking station. The problem is that the Helix 2 doesn't always recognize the docking station and I only get one monitor. After several times of deleting the display driver and rebooting it / undocking and redocking it will work for a while.
 
Then for some reason it stops recognizing the docking station again and I have to go through this process again.

To start, I have updated all drivers from the lenovo site.  I was using a second screen via display port to DVI and when I woke up the next day, it would no longer detect or identify the second monitor , but would say "2. Display port on:VGA."  It never said this before. So, I took the second monitor to another laptop and it works fine.  I also went into the bios and changed the display configuration to all three settings.  Nothing!  This has become mind-boggling.  Any thoughts?

One of the systems we have is a Lenovo ThinkPad Helix. Recently it has been over heating. Nothing seems different, other than the over heating issue. As far as I know, nothing has changed on the system (updates, hardware, etc).

The system is out of warranty (ended May 30, 2016 <-- Bummer!). Any suggestions of what to look at would be greatly appreciated.

I don't have access to the computer right off as the main user of the machine is not at the same location as I am, so replies might be a bit slow.

Thanks.

Hello Community I have a ThinkPad Helix (1st Gen) N3Z6CGES running Windows 10. Bought it back in 2013.Long time i was very happy with the device. Smaller issues, no big deals.Among others: Some static Windows control buttons burnt into the screen. Therefore, in September 2017 I decided to give it to a certified dealer, before my ThinkPlus service runs out.They changed the screen and since the Helix has this new screen, I have the same problem as it is seen in this video:Lenovo Yoga 3 14 freaking around... [YouTube]Exept for my phantom touches only occure in the lower corners of the screen. Which doesn't make it any better, though.Rebooting gives me a break for a few minutes, but then it start again out of nowhere. Sadly, for some time, after the repair i haven't used the notebook at at all, so I didn't realize there is this problem.During this time, of course my ThinkPlus Service and the warranty for the device run out. But then again I needed my notebook very urgently, saw the problem and didn't have the opportunity to give it to repair again.I improvised and turned off the touch screen in the Device Manager. I could only use the digitizer, but at least i was able to work with the Helix. Few days ago there was a Windows update and i noticed that this update resetted my settings in the device manager. I was able to use the touch input completely problem-free again and felt happy like a little child, not knowing how much is missed this comfort!The problem w... Read more

Hi there, I've seen many forum topics relating to the pressure sensitivity on Paint Tool Sai when using a Lenovo Helix.I too am struggling with the issue. It's not only the pressure sensitivity that doesn't seem to work, but pinch to zoom and other tablet functions don't seem to either - I'm making the assumption that Paint Tool can't recognise that I'm using a tablet. I've tried every piece of advice on here and Google - although most advice seems to be regarding Wacom sensitivity which doesn't really help me. I've tried changing the settings within Paint Tool and also downloading the most recent Wintab drivers as well, restarting the laptop without the stylo in the hole etc. But nothing seems to work. I have emailed Systemax to see if they can help, but I'm really not sure what there support will be like. I was just wondering whether anyone knows anything else I can try?

Hi from germany, i have exacly the same problem here. I bought the identical helix system with i7 and 8gb. Sadly i have the same issues. The touchscreen started to be unresponsive and/or laggy, all over the screen. Then somehow it started to make phantomtouches on one point again and again. This phantomtouches are fighting with the stylus,trackpad and sometimes touches of my hand. Needless to say that the rate of phantomtouches is that high that you can't win the fight. I tried recalibration, driver updates, windowsupdates, did a rollback (2x) and reseted the whole Helix Thinkpad to the original delivery status. After doing the reset via windows the notebook rebooted and .... the phantomtouch was right on the exact same point as before. Even before i could register my pcname and so on. Not to mention that this error accured in tablet and notebookmode. Sometimes the phantomtouches stopped, but they just returned 5minutes later. Would love to see a solution there.

A:Re: Lenovo Helix Touch Screen Malfunctioning

I received my Helix (36984SU, i7, 8gb RAM, 256 gb HD) approximately 10 days ago.  Over the weekend I began to experience malfunctioning of the touch screen when using in tablet mode.  At first there was a single vertical section of the touch screen that was unresponsive.  Now, the problem has spread to the entire touch screen although the bottom half (when held in landscape) is basically inoperable - the screen detects "phantom" touches and very inaccurate real touches (as shown below).  Squeezing the bezel around the screen seems to cause more phantom touches to be detected.
 
The stylus works fine although it tends to battle with the touch screen because the touch screen is constantly detecting "phantom" touches.
 
Also, I just re-docked the tablet last night and found that the touch-pad mouse also gets stuck in the bottom left of the screen but is released after about 10 seconds of being docked.  This may be due to fighting with the touch screen as well.
 
I tried re-calibrating but I can't even hit the targets given in the re-calibration tool due to the inaccuracy.
 
As you can see in the image below, I drew the red arrows with the stylus and then I went back and traced the red arrows with my finger thus producing the green lines with the touch screen.
 
I also created a couple videos of the malfunction in action:

Hello, I have the issue with Recovery partition on Lenovo ThinkPad Helix. I accidentally deleted this partition when I'm tryed to install custom Windows 7 on this tablet PC. Thus, I have a question, how can I get this recovery image for Lenovo Helix? Thank you in advance. 

A:Recovery partition on Lenovo ThinkPad Helix

Hi Murdoqq,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
If you deleted the recovery partition, you have deleted the files needed to create the recovery media without which you cannot create a recovery media.
 
If you get the OEM ISO and re install it, the key should register automatically because it?s flashed into BIOS.
 
Otherwise, you have to call Lenovo Technical Support and order for a new set of recovery discs. Refer here for further information regarding the same.
 
Hope this helps!
 
Best regards,
Mithun.

Okay, so my keyboard dock works fine. I restarted it once (paperclip method) after dying on me, but afterwards nothing was really wrong with it. Now, the tablet's battery is acting funny. At first, I thought it was just my keyboard dock not charging my tablet, so I detatched the keyboard, and the tablet completely shut off. I plugged the AC adapter into the tablet, and it came back to life, but it would not charge at all. The keyboard dock would be at 100%, but the tablet itself would only be at 8%. I have installed the Lenovo Dependency Package thing and the firmware update, but it didn't change anything. Now, even though it says (plugged in, charging) on my tablet, it's not really charging. So, whenever I unplug the tablet or detatch the tablet from the keyboard dock, the system completely turns off because it's only at 8%. Please help me! Thank you!  EDIT: Okay, so I unplugged the AC adapter while the keyboard dock was on and then Battery #1, the tablet battery, drained down to 0%, and its status is now Plugged in, not charging, while Battery #2 is plugged in, charging. I also got a pop up notification saying there's an error in battery #1, see replacement options. I clicked it, but it was a dead browser link.Also, when I go to the Support app, it says under messages that my battery is not valid... but I don't know how that happened. I've only had my Helix for about 2 months now.

ThinkPad Helix 2, came with Windows 8, upgraded to Windows 10.  Having quite a few problems that I am solving one by one.  Computer is running slow and the memory is saturated. 
 
Try to run "Lenovo Companion" to see if I can address some issues I am having.  When I go to use this program, I get a popup to install "Lenovo System Interface Driver" for "full functionality".  After the file is downloaded, it will not completely install.  Get error messages toward the end.

I've had a virus on the laptop/tablet for a while now and it was ruining the PC for me. I tried multiple different free malware detection services but the actual problems always slipped through. I didn't want to have to pay for a whole new program just to clean it out, and because this is a fairly new device I decided to just factory reset the whole thing. I followed the steps in the user manual and a couple of different internet sites, but I've hit a brick wall. When I get to the reset screen of the laptop, all of the possible options I can use encounter errors. I tried to use "refresh your PC" and get "There was a problem refreshing your PC". I tried "reset your PC" and it gets about half way through the process and says "There was a problem resetting your PC". I went into the advanced options that looks like the image I've attached to this post. It says I do not have any point to restore to, I don't have an image backup, the system repair says that it couldn't repair the PC, I have no idea what to do in command prompt, I couldn't find anything useful in the UEFI (But then again, I didn't know what to look for), and startup settings doesn't do anything.

Hi, I am facing 2nd issue with my newly purchased T430. This issue mostly happens in the battery mode. For the past 10 days I was not quiet sure but yesterday while I was working on some of my photogrpahs and as I was switching from very bright image to a dark image I can see the display reducing its brightness automatically in the darker image with few flickers. I tested it again and again just to make sure. I noticed that as I return back to a bright image the screen brightness gradually increases, infact to an extent that you feel like reducing the screen brightness manually.  Has anybody faced this issue. If yes please share a solution to this problem or is this a hardware issue ?  I read in one of the threads for unchecking Dynamic Brightness Control in lenovo power manager which by the way in my case are all unchecked.  Please help.  Thank you

A:Display flicker problem

RELEVANCY SCORE 53.2

It's a new build, all new compatible stuff.

I thought it might be the video chip ATI Radeon 3300HD, on a FoxConn board. So I bought another board - BioStar (with the same vid chip), and put the CPU and ram in, and fired it.

IT'S DOING THE SAME THING - FLICKER AT 1 SECOND INTERVALS!!! 30 - 40 times, then skips 10 seconds or so, and picks up again, at PERFECT 1 second intervals.

There is also an intermittent display problem - web pages do not 'finalize' the page load - the fonts stop loading in a large size. 'Refresh' the page finalizes font sizing to the smaller size...

So is it the CPU? Or the ram?

CPU is Athlon II X3 440 3.0 Ghz.
Ram is Kingston KVR667K2D2 1G x 4 sticks.

Both are compatible with each board FoxConn A7DA-S, and BioStar TA790GX.

Since this seems DIRECTLY related to the system clock, is it possible that boosting clock speed might have an effect on this problem, even if only for diagnostic purposes?

Hi guys,my mom has a Lenovo Y50-Y70 that she bought around Christmas,and she has her Screen flickering almost all the time.The problem she's having is,that she went with it to Lenovo service 4 times by now and the problem isn't fixed.This last time hey said there's no problems with it and just gave it back to her.But it's not fixed, she sent me videos of her screen still flickering(sometimes is a white flicker or black).What can she do now?By the way she lives in italy and she tried(to no avail) to solve the problem of her laptop thru Lenovo italia service.The guys there,told her there's no problem with it and they won't give her a new unit,a diferent uinit with the same value or just give her the money back.

A few months ago, I had a problem where the screen would lightly flicker for a while. It got longer over time to the point where it takes 5 minutes to get to the Windows 10 boot up screen. Any advice?

Hello guys, i recently bought a Lenovo Y-50 and i have a problem.

The screen "flickers" quite alot. This means: black horizontal bars flickering across the screen or a random pink flash (happens occasionaly but the black bars are 97% of the flickering). It seems to be that my screen is not properly connected.

I have a solution but it is a really lame and unefficient way of fixing it.

When i am watching a livestream or playing a game the screen does NOT flicker. The fix i have right now is: opening Twitch.Tv (gaming streams) and just leaving it open in the background when i'm doing stuff. This works verywell... My screen does not flicker at all, but ofcourse when the wifi drops or i am not at home i obviously can not watch a live stream, causing it to flicker again.

So at this point i am convinced that the screen flicker happens because of the low prestation when i am not using things like a livestream or a game.

Is there any way to fix this? As in... a background application or settings fix.

(i will stay active in this thread and i can post printscreens if needed.)

Note: i have 3 years of warranty so when i finish this school year (few months left) i could always bring it back to get it fixed. It is not possible right now due to the fact that i need my laptop everyday and i can not afford to lose files.

Thanks in advance for taking your time on reading/ trying to help.

Hello, I have just purchased a brand new HP 23-R115a  All-in-One PC, and was examining the properties of the Screen, when I discovered that the Windows 10 system has a "Generic Monitor" installed. Is this the best possible option?I have some screen flicker when I turn down the brightness to a comfortable level, and I have noticed that the screen refresh frequency is locked in at 60Hz.Note Also that I can seem to elimate the flicker if I boost the brightness up to very high, but I dont like this as it's far to bright. In Australia, we have a 50Hz 240volt Mains power frequency, so I was wondering if the 60Hz refresh rate is clashing with our 50Hz system. Or should I configure the system with a better fit specific HP display profile? Please see the screen grab of the proerties of the Generic Monitor where it seems to identify the HP monitor by I.D.I tried to do a search for a driver but I couldn't find one. Your help would be appreciated. TIA.

In case of connection of the external monitor through HDMI flicker on the screen permanently get out. When using without external monitor there are no such problems. How it can be corrected? I tried to put manually new drivers on P530 and m1000m - but it doesn't help!

hi,

Im having a problem when i connect my laptop with external display.
My laptop is HP tx2(12" display) with windows vista sp2 and my external display is an LCD tv of Onida(Xaria 22")

When i connect my laptop to the LCD tv, the connection is ok... display comes properly....resolution is also good...
but after some time of using it(either watching videos or even normal browsing) the display flickers and then gets diconnected(with the disconnection sound or tone) and automatically gets connected again.
sometimes after auto re-connection the resolution also gets changed....this is really annoying..

Iv used the help section... they asked me to increase the flicker rate to atleast 75 but my laptop has a max freq of 60hz only. iv also applied max resolution to the screen...but the same thing always happens again..
then i also connected the same lcd tv to my another laptop(hp dv6000, 15.4", vista sp2) and the same problem never comes. even the flicker rate of that laptop is max 60 hz. both have same resolutions also

iv tried all that i cud.... advise please.....

Just bought a 900 during black friday. I noticed that my screen flickers when I use split screen. By split screen I mean I have excel operating on one half the screen and word on the other half. Any thoughts on this issue?

Hi, My Lenovo Y40-70 (Windows 10) flickers on battery. I purchased a new battery, thinking this would fix the issue, but it did not. When I connect my computer to a second screen, the laptop screen flickers but the second screen does not. Usually the battery goes to about 90% with minimal flickering, but then it gets pretty back by flashing at 1 second intervals. So far I have done the following: - Checked the display cable connection to the LCD panel. - Cleaned the laptop insides and made sure that all cables were sufficiently connected (as far as I can tell). - Reset all power options to default. Interestingly, when my disk usage goes up - the flickering increases. When it idles at about 3 - 5% it flickers, but just less frequently. I have disabled windows search and superfetch too.- Updated all GPU drivers. I have an Intel one and a AMD Radeon one.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks.
