Re:lenovo y740 screen flickering after driver update

I have the exact same problem. I also installed 457.51, and hit the SAME flickering problems on boot sometimes. When I installed the Lenovo-updated driver in Vantage, same problem. 452.06 is what I am stuck on for now.

I had the same problem. But I enabled the hybrid mode in Lenovo Vantage, and now it doesn't flicker any more.

I'm in the same situation with the annoying flickeribg... and as someone that's far from being a tech-savy this whole thing became a very frustrating source of headaches.

 

They picked up my laptop on Friday so...let's see if they fix it.

 

Another problem I had was that after turning the laptop back on after running out of battery,  the display would start to freeze  gradually until it'd completely stop responding, so I was forced to reboot.

 

So everytime I'd run out of battery I'd turn it back on and restart it right away to avoid the issue.... 

 

Can't believe this is happening with a new fricking computer.

Unfortunately the fix for me was no fix at all as they kept me waiting for the "piece" they needed to fix it. Later they told me said piece was a new screen, but later on they said it was also a new motherboard. A month went by and by the time the piece should have arrived to the repair center they told me that I was going to have tokeep waiting almost till mid June as they still hadn't received all the pieces...so, given that I sent my laptop starting April and that they were not honoring their word , they offered me a refund and I took it. So....not happy... but now I'm happy with my new Asus. 🤷🏼‍♂️

Hey after turning on the hybrid mode, I started seeing flickering issues in the YouTube videos. Rolling back to older NVidia drivers have worked temporarily for me. Still, nothing can be said for sure. Surprised to see that many people are having such issues. It's not just the screen that flickers for me, but also the keyboard led lights. They also blink irregularly. The premium call support has been useless so far. They don't do anything other than asking me to wait.

To me it seems like there's a problem with handling two graphic drivers. If it now only happens when you're watching a youtube video, then it has to that it doesn't know which one to choose, when you're watching video
