Y700 screen flickering and image retention

2016-01-26, 23:58 PM

This is my third replacement for my y510p, I first got 2 y50 with dead pixels. I finally got a new replacement a beautiful y700 with 512gb ssd and all the best configurations. However, now this is worse than the other 2 bad replacements, the screen started flickering and retaining images and I just can't anymore with lenovo. In the image I'm attaching you can see windows I opened way before many restarts and shut downs, I updated the intel driver, I uninstalled it, I reboot it, I don't know what to do anymore. How can I get 3 bad replacements. I'm about to call lenovo, but I don't know how they're going to react, I do have the 2 year accidental damage warranty. But at this point I wish I could get my money back and buy another brand. I paid like 1600 for the original one. Ugh :(

Be strong and send that ... "thing" back to Lenovo.

Let's flood them with those bad laptops!

The main reason why You keep getting malfunctioning equipment is because Lenovo still don't know what is 

the cause of this problem with screen flicks!

IMVHO it's the matter of luck.

I was lucky, aned second Y700 i recieved seems to be good and has no problems with the screen so far.

You'll have to call support and send it back. Maybe it can be done in that country if their International Warranty is worth anything.
