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.

I have a 9360 with the 3200x1800 touch screen and 16 GB of RAM.
When I connect an external 4K monitor and also use the internal laptop monitor, the external monitor flickers on and off every few seconds whenever the laptop is doing something graphically intensive (just zooming in and out of google maps is sufficient to trigger it, but lots of other things can too).
So far, I have tried two different 4K monitors, two different 9360 laptops, two different docks, connected directly to the laptop w/o the dock, a bunch of cables, and different intel graphics driver versions.  Currently running the Dell driver (21.20.16.4664) but they all have the same problem.
I can avoid the flickering if I disable the internal laptop screen when using the external screen - but that's not exactly optimal -  I'd love to be able to run both simultaneously.  I can also avoid it if I use a lower resolution monitor, but, according to the specifications, this laptop should be able to run 2 4K external monitors at 60 Hz simultaneously, and here it is choking on one + the internal display which isn't even 4K!
Has anyone else experienced this problem?

I have 3 4K Monitors connected to a TB-16 docking station.  One monitor blinks erratically and has been an issue since my first purchase in May of this year.  I am on my 3rd replacement laptop and since it arrived 6 weeks ago, it has the same issue and DELL PREMIUM support says they are working on it but I have not heard back from them for now 6 weeks.  
I've seen many posts on this similar issue.  Is this just a defect that cannot be resolved.  If so, issue a refund and this will be returned.
And Yes, I've updated every driver in the order that was recommended by the DELL technician and they also did the same.  It has gotten more erratic and ridiculous that I have to pay this much money for a laptop that is unstable.  Help me escalate this to Mr. Dell and get this working or refund me.

I have had this Elitebook 840 G3 about two weeks.  When I am using the laptop by itself, the screen flickers and goes black.  This occurs randomly and only lasts a few seconds (maybe about once or twice per hour).  When an additional monitor is attached directly to the laptop, either through the HP Displayport or the VGA port, then both screens flicker and the external monitor will actually go black for a few seconds at a time.  When docked in a slim docking station, the same problem occurs with monitors connected through the dock as with those directly connected.   I first upgraded all the drivers using the HP Support Assistant.  Then the flickering still continued and I upgraded the drivers for the Intel HD Graphics 520 directly from Intel.  The system is currently on driver version 20.19.15.4483 dated 7/1/2016.  This laptop has an intel i5-6300U processor, 8G RAM, and is on Windows 10 Enterprise with all the latest updates applied. I do not think this is a hardware issue, because:1) There are 2 others that work with me that also just received new 840 G3 notebooks that are having exactly the same problem2) It happens when using the laptop alone, when using the laptop with monitors directly connected, and when using the laptop monitors connected through a slim dock3) When the flickering occurs and the external monitors go black, the open windows on the screen do not move back to the laptop screen unless you unplug t...

Hi all,

This is not the first time I am posting regarding my current problem, though this is more directly related to the graphics card.

The short version of the story is that a few weeks ago my hard drive probably sustained some light damage and the laptop wouldn't boot up in any way. After a check disk was done from another computer Windows could load again. However, it critically failed (and forced a 1min restart) during the start up. After running SFC, I manually replaced some corrupt files (though it still says they are problematic) and somewhere there normal mode stabilised again.

For the last week or so it has been working ok except from some sporadic BSODs (all with nvlddmkm.sys at fault). Some artefacts would show up on the screen and some times they would go away and other times the system would deteriorate and crash. A reboot or loading the last known working settings seemed to do the trick when the problem persisted. However, as of yesterday it has all gone to hell. No matter whether I clean installed two versions of the graphics drivers or various system fixes the problem is still there. Mind you, it doesn't seem to result to a BSOD anymore. If I try normal mode, after the Windows logo I get white and black vertical lines, then artefacts show up everywhere and the laptop restarts. On the other hand, safe mode displays no problems whatsoever.

Now, ideally I would like the whole problem to be fixed without having to reinstall Windows. Part of it is that... Read more

A:Display produces artefacts and crashes at start up, maybe corrupt OS

Hi,
If the machine boots into safe-mode with no issues then I would say your issue
is most likely driver/software related. (With the exception of the graphics card)

To test please disable your GPU, then re-boot into normal mode.
To disable GPU navigate to:
Start>Computer>system properties>device manager
Locate>Display Adapters and expand
Select your Graphics card
Right click and "disable" and it will ask you to confirm and reboot the system into Normal mode.

Observe the reboot for any of the isses you mentioned (lines, artifacts etc) and use your computer as normal with the exception of Games/ graphic related programs.

Also you could try the 306.23 stable nvidia driver, this may at least stop your BSOD's:
Driver Fusion.
Reboot the computer in
Advanced Boot Options, safe mode. Search Driver Fusion in your start menu,
and remove all components of your nVidia display driver.
If it says the the free version of Driver Fusion cannot remove all the elements, stop there and follow
Drivers - Clean Left over Files after Uninstalling
Boot normally now. Go to:
Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers, Drivers > Beta and Legacy; search there with your cards particulars for:
GeForce 306.23 Driver, dated 13.9.2012 and install it.

Did you run SFC from boot?

Hello Everyone,
I have Dell N5110 which had recently Display DIM issue.  I have contacted the local repair store, they've diagnosed and said it had issue display IO controller and needs to be changed.
They've replaced it and display was working fine for few weeks. After few weeks, I had my battery changed as it's health was in bizarre state after running diagnostic test and it prompted for replacing the battery. 
I have new battery installed and the display started flickering. The battery is original one as I have purchased it from dell store. I want some one to help me out in fixing this issue. 
I have installed Windows 10 recently, could that be a problem. If nothing can be fixed by troubleshooting, please help me out with nearest authorized service center so-that I can have the laptop checked once.
Thanks & Regards,

Okay, so my problem is that my screen flickers everytime i type ANY charactor, have ANY mouse movement, or ANYTHING is being loaded. I have already reloaded my video card drivers and that did not help. I see horizontal lines every time i type, then sometimes the whole screen goes black untill i stop typing for a few seconds. I assume this has something to do with refresh rate because i only have a problem when something moves or new is added like a new letter to this paragraph. I would also like to mention that some letters seem to be jumbled for a moment, then when i type again they are fixed. I am not editing my thread because when i submitted this i was givin a message on a black screen that said "2 Digital input cannot display this video mode."

Sounds like the backlight is about to go out. There is a fluorescent tube inside the monitor that has only so many thousands of hours of life,like fluorescent lights at the office. My friend used to repair LCD monitors. When you buy refurbished LCD monitors,they are used monitors with a new backlight inside. You could replace the backlight now or buy a new monitor since prices have dropped.

I have a problem with a display that occaisionally flickers on and off to a light blue tone. This happens at no consistent time, sometimes as soon as I turn on the computer and sometimes after an hour or more. I have a viewsonic G773 monitor and a Diamond Viper II video card with 32 meg of memory. Both drivers are the most current available, and I have swapped out both the monitor and the video card alternately, and still have the problem. It seems this is a system problem not related to either the monitor or video card. What do I try now??
 

A:display flickers and changes color

I think your videocard's refresh rate isn't quite right. For a non-flickering display, it should be set at 75 or above. TRy that and see if it works

Hi, first time poster on the forums, great job you guys do here

My problem is probably related to having just moved my computer to a new apartment, but I'm trying to isolate the exact cause.

The Problem: My monitor flickers at various Screen Refresh rates except the lowest one available (which hurts my eyes to begin with).

Things I have tried: I instantly thought my old CRT was on the way out when it happened, so I switched monitors to no avail.
- re-installed display drivers.

What I just recently noticed (since I rarely restart my PC), is that the screen flickers even on the Memory/BIOS screen before I even enter windows. Which leads me to believe it is not a problem with my OS or drivers.

So, I'm wondering if there is a fix or if my mobo/graphics card might be broken.

Thanks

I have uploaded a video of my laptop to better show the problem:

I am thinking something is wrong with a connection or some cable just don't know which. Never fixed a laptop. I broke the panel before I figured out the screws were hidden behind tiny black covers. Also broke the metallic part of the screen on the right side but I guess I will crazy glue it somehow. My most important issue is the flickering.

If anyone knows how to fix this issue please let me know I would really appreciate it.

At certain position the screen doesn't flicker, mostly if it's set back at a greater than 90 degree angle.
 

A:Laptop display flickers

It's sensible to check the connectors to the screen but unless you find a video of how to get inside your particular laptop and study it you are highly likely to break other pieces too. I worked out how to take mine apart thanks to Google but although I was careful I still broke a connector. Putting that right took me ages.

when i boot my E6420 with AC adapter connected, the backlight doesn't come on. (i can see the screen image with a flashlight so the LCD is working).
with the computer booted, when i remove the AC, the backlight comes on at full brilliance but it flickers and flashes.  (flicker--very quick dimming;  flickering--very quick alternating between LCD on and totally off).

then when i reconnect AC, the screen dims to the level it would be on battery (dimmer than on AC) but still flickers--but the flashing is gone.

if i boot with AC not connected, the backlight works properly for about 10 seconds, then the backlights flashes between on and off every 1/2 second.  after a couple of minutes, the frequency of the flashing on/off goes to a couple of seconds, and when it is on it flickers.    so---flicker flicker flicker  flash off   flicker  flicker   flicker   flash off   etc.
i ran the pre-boot diagnostics.  it flags the LCD cable as bad, but the display is passed as OK.  I can easily replace the LCD cable, but any other ideas?

i thought maybe the DC in jack/cable was bad, but i replaced that to no avail.

thanks in advance

Go into UEFI diagnostics (F2 as you power up) and look for the component tests and there is a display test. Run it and report results. The cable can go bad but very rare. More likely it is the display panel itself and it goes bad at the cable connection point. This will create intermittent issues for a while then the screen will go out.

Recently I've came across a problem while using my dell laptop.
Whenever the brightness is lower than 100% the display starts to flicker in a strange way ( sort of video artifacts) Also happens in bios and on boot. On 100% brightness no flickers are to be seen.
I've tried updating the bios and graphics drivers none of this solutions would help, though, after updating the bios (installing any version of bios) the problem seems to go away for a little while, then it comes back.
I've seen that it is a very common problem. The laptop is fairly new, I have it for about a week or so but the problem had been there since the very beginning. 
I believe it is a software issue but found no solution to it yet.
Returning it to the shop isn't really an option as it would require me sending it back to the country where it was bought from so it will make things more complicated.

Hi We are having issues with two Elitebook 850 G1 laptops running Windows 10 and using external adapters via the HP ultraslim docking station. It proves to be nearly impossible to come to a stable setup, either the external display is not working, either the laptop display is not working, opening the laptop lid does not work. In short, it?s a mess. Note that this was working flawlessly whit the same machine on Windows 7. Looks like a driver issue to me. Naturally the latest drivers are installed. I recently installed an Elitebook 850 G2 laptop and that one works like it should. This type of laptop has two graphical chips: AMD and Intel. I notice that when I disable the AMD driver the laptop display is not detected. When the Intel driver is disabled the external display is not detected. Maybe someone can explain what is so beneficial in having two graphics adapters. And maybe it is possible to disable one of the two completely and let the machine work with just one? These laptops are not used for advanced graphical work, but their users would be very happy if they could use them with their external displays. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Koen

A:Issues with external display on Elitebook 850 G1

What driver versions do you have? Have you updated the Docking Station Firmware?  There have been a few releases over the years to improve compatibility with displays.  WIndows 10 may "expose" new features that other Windows releases haven't. Dual adapters are provided for performance/battery concerns.  The thinking is the integrated adapter is used for most tasks and uses the least power/battery.  The additional adapter is used when you need more performance/displays/features.

Hello.  I am having an issue with my USB Type C port on my EliteBook 1040 G3.  Can the USB C port on this laptop be used to pass video?  I have looked through the documentation on line, but it makes no reference to the the USB C being able to act like a display port. I purchased a travel monitor (ASUS) that uses USB C, but when I plug in the monitor in the USB C port all I get is Windows does not recognise this device".  I have update all my HP drivers, and all appears to be in order. So my question is, can this laptop use the USB C port for video, and if so how does one enable this. Thank You!

Dear All,. I recently upgraded my laptop to the EB 840 G3 with Displayport and no DVI-D. I need to use a samsung SyncMaster 2233 as a shared screen between the elite book and my other windows 7 machine. I have interconnected the 2 machines and the monitor via the Belkin SOHO DVI KVM which was working perfectly with my old DVI-D laptop. Since using the EB 840 and displayport with the maplin passive displayport to DVI-D Adapter here - http://www.maplin.co.uk/p/maplin-displayport-to-dvi-d-adapter-a30qh The laptop does not setect the samsung display at all. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
