Lenovo y50 screen flicker

Q: Lenovo y50 screen flicker

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.

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.

I have a Lenovo G530 laptop that has an issue with screen flicker that is getting worse. The computer screen will start going thru a crazy screen flicker then will stop and start again. I have already checked cable connection to lcd on motherboard and reseated connection of lcd to motherboard located under the keyboard as someone suggested in another posting I found online that resolved issue for them. I am starting to think it might be a bad inverter or screen because I have hooked up laptop to external monitor and it is running fine with no flickering happening when the flickering is occurring on laptop. I am attaching a link to a small video I shot of the issue as it is occurring on laptop screen. Does anyone have any further suggestions? Bad inverter or screen? Screen flicker vid

"Bad inverter or screen?" Yes, most likely. But which one? Cutting in and out like that, I have not seen.My thinking is the inverter is cheaper, so I try that first. It is still possible that the cable is faulty, though. Not much help, I know.

Lenovo Thinkpad X200, around 5 or 6 years old, used every day for past 4 years. Screen has started flickering. No black screen or white outs, just flickering very quickly/lightly, but very obvious.

Tried to check ribbon cable to screen and it seems ok. Started and restarted computer with battery in and out, checked PSU/plug with my spare set and both ok. Changed from 50hz to 60hz resolution and screen still flickers.

Have checked lenovo help site but caught no joy.

Does this sound like the screen needs replacing or the inverter needs replacing or is there something obvious I've missed ?

Apart from this screen flicker it works fine.
 

A:Solved: lenovo thinkpad x200 screen flicker

It sounds a bit as though the backlight is beginning to fail.

Does moving the screen back and forth make any difference. If so it may just be the connector to the motherboard that has worked loose and needs re-inserting.

New Yoga 700 11. Screen flickers continuously after returning from sleep. Stops after a reboot. Problem started right after unboxing and remains after running Windows Update. Windows now at version 1511. Intel HD Graphics driver now at 20.19.15.4300. Searching for Intel HD Graphics driver updates from Device Manager doesn't detect anything -- though I see the Intel site has a 15.40.14.4352 version that claims to address screen flicker. Automated brightness management is off. The laptop is plugged in, so battery power saving shouldn't be a factor. Question for the community: can I install the 4352 driver from the Intel site? Or do I have to wait for Lenovo to add special OEM features to the stock Intel driver?

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.

HiI have had this flickering issue ever since I updated to windows 10 2 years ago.I have updated the graphics card (and every other driver). Updated the BIOS. Played with the VGA intel driver settings (suggested by someone online). All of that and more and still the issue doesnt go away.When it becomes so bad I open the laptop and deattach/attach the screen cable. This resolves the issue for a couple of days and it comes back even worse every time.Although this may suggest it is a hardware issue, it never happened before the win10 upgrade. It also seems to happen more severly when certain websites are open, and also when certain programs are used. Check this video I uploaded to know what I mean.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1AQWGk40YwMA few months ago the problem suddenly was complicated and the screen went corrupt (green haze with white lines). I had to buy a new screen and install it. Things seemed fine after that for a month, and it is now back again flickering!I have a separate monitor connected by HDMI to the laptop and it works fine (thus it is not a VGA issue)I am frustrated and tired. I payed top-dollar (back then) for a laptop that acts as a workstation/gaming platform and this flickering is killing me (along with the heat in left side of keyboard during gaming, but ppl online says it is normal so I dont mind)Please help. I am out of waranty.

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

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?

Hi guys!
How's it going? Recently built a new rig for working and gaming but I've noticed that there is some slight screen flicker when I load up a game and sometimes even if I'm just on a greyscale webpage- the machine doesn't crash or anything though. There's also no "System information" in my DX Diagnostic so slightly confused why that is as well- I did a scannow scf thing for it and it seemed to repair something but don't know what. I'll write how I built the machine and perhaps that'll give a clue.

I installed all parts in the case as directed and set up. I ran Windows 7 but since I couldn't find my original CD key I couldn't register my copy (I assure you it's all above board- I got my copy of Windows 7 via the Academic Alliance my University has with Microsoft) so with it installed I used the upgrade function of Windows 8 to upgrade and do a fresh install. Once completed I ran the NVideo 310 driver for the GPU I've got. It seemed a bit buggy so I did a complete uninstall of it (unstalling through Device Manager then deleting the NVidia Files in My Programs (realising it was a Beta driver) and replaced it was a slightly earlier WHQL Driver- which is far less buggy. However, this has not fixed the Screen Flicker issue.

Since a couple of weeks I notice that the screen flickers from time to time on my Dell XPS15 (4K display).

Hi STEEFD,
What is the exact system model? What is the current OS installed on the system? Does this happen with or without the adapter connected? Is the adapter frayed? What applications are you using when you notice the screen flicker, while using the keyboard to type?
Connect an external keyboard and check if the screen flickers while using the external keyboard.
Connect an external monitor and check if the issue is seen there as well.
Restart the system and press f12 key on startup - choose diagnostics. Let it run the diags and if you encounter any errors - make a note of the complete error and report the same to us.
Run the LCD bist - Turn off the system and press and hold the "D" key + power button to turn on the system and it should run the LCD built in self test - see this link for more info - http://dell.to/1SkXNrG
While running the tests above, use the keyboard and press any key, although the keypress would not come into effect on the display, check if the screen flickers while in this mode.
Also, run a custom test on the keyboard through Support Assist and check if the screen flickers at that point - http://dell.to/1NEc1Y4
Based on your response, we could isolate the source of the issue.
Also, please click my DELL-username and write me a private conversation with the service tag and your contact details(Name and Email) for case records.

I just got Windows 7 Home Premium today and installed 64bit edition. I must say, I'm over the moon. Great OS.

Have a very small annoyance issue I was hoping someone could tell me is a result of a feature that I can turn off that isn't a major.

So here's what's happening

In Windows Explorer / My Computer when it's maximized "full screen", when I double click a folder and navigate around the directories, the screen changes brightness to bright then back very quickly to the original level (it basically flashes). If a folder only has a few other files inside of it, it even changes brightness when I hover over the icons. It's not a major and doesn't do it when it's not fully maximized. Even if I make it the size of the screen by dragging the corners when it's restored down it doesn't do it. Very weird, and kind of hurts my eyes, especially when it's getting late at night and I should be in bed already.

When I disable visual themes, the problem goes away, but then it looks like rank, and I want to have all the flashy things that are unique to this version of windows, so....

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

a visit to the manufacturer's webiste and a quick driver/profile download sorted it out - the one and only time i've needed to download a monitor driver ever, i think. luckily the same monitor has no problems in any of the 7s that i've tried.

Hey all,

I have a Packard Bell PIII 450MHz PC running Windows 98SE that I've recently been making a few amendments to (wireless network, addition of RAM - originally 64MB, another 256MB added). I don't know what has caused it but the screen will flicker very badly and I think the monitor might be near its end. The PC has an inbuilt graphics card and is installed with another one (Hercules) but I don't think this is the problem as it ran fine for a long time with both of them in. I recently tried changing the refresh rate to 75Hz AFTER the monitor started to flicker but that didn't make any difference. It seems the top of the screen is worse than the bottom and its starting to go a yellowish colour at the top. Doesn't sound good I know. Do you reckon I need to change the monitor or could it be the graphics cards? Thanks for your help.

First, check your monitor's refresh rate; make sure it's set to the highest available value.

Failing that, update your video card and monitor drivers from HERE. Ideally, this should have been carried out prior to the SP3 install, however, as you've had no major issues, you seem to have got away with it, so give it a whirl now.

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.

I've been having an issue in Windows 7 since last night.

Every game I attempt to open, and some application windows, are giving me flickers as though the screen is trying to minimize and maximize repeatedly in rapid succession.

I was recently using Advanced System Optimizer and I'm guessing the problem stemmed from my brief stint with it. Unfortunately my computer wasn't set to take a restore point, or this could've been avoided.

I'm using the most recently updated version of Windows 7 Home Premium right now, and I'll gladly provide any other information you all might need.

Ideas? Anyone?

I'm not sure when it happened but my screen flickers constantly. I was thinking it was something with the refresh rate but I'm not experienced in this sort of thing so I could use some help.

Wrong forum?

A:Screen Flicker

Whenever I try to open the File Manager, it doesn't open and the screen would flicker. Also, if I right clicked on an icon on the desktop, the screen would flicker and doesn't open that thing beside the icon. The only way to access the FIle Manager is to search a folder in it, but if I try to interact with it, it will close and the screen would flicker. It's been happening since I tried to download an uncompatible AMD driver into my laptop. I emailed the AMD support and didn't really get an direct answer. Been trying to find a driver for my laptop, but none shows up. I'm really despreate for a solution, please help. (I hope this is reversible, but if it isn't, oh well) If you ask me why I tried to download an uncompatible driver on my laptop, it's because I didn't know at the time and I'm not a hardware/software expert.

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
