My Y700 keeps flickering in game when it is plugged

2017-03-03, 5:16 AM

I've just received my Y700 and days ago I found it was flickering during game when I plugged the adapter. It works great when using the battery and even great outside the game when plugged. Any ideas..?

I've just received my Y700 last week but from last weekends, the screen begins flashing in game when I plugged in the adapter. I've chatted with the support departments and updated all the drivers but it did not work

Any ideas of that issue? Is there something wrong with the hardware?

Return your laptop. There are many Lenovo with this issue, and Lenovo hasn't done a thing about it for more than a year. Supposedly fixed laptops come back defective. I lived with the problem for more than a year, without any help from lenovo, until I got rid of my laptop.

 

Get something else - anything else. Your computer cannot, and will not be fixed by lenovo.
