Re: y700 14inch screen flickering when gaming

2017-07-05, 15:04 PM

Hi max000

 

The email response mentioned that this happens with a SPECIFIC game?

Is that true? Does it happen with other games?

 

Which game is having issue (if only one)?

Thanks.

This is a hardware defect for sure.

 

Just tell the support that you have issues playing games and that the screen flickers, tell them you suspect it's the GPU failing. Then send it for repair.

 

Thanks.

Re: y700 screen flickering when gaming

2019-03-21, 6:18 AM

Hello,

 

Is this problem solved? I am having exact same problem. I have lenovo y700 14isk. Games flicker only while playing when AC power cord connected. I tried resetting AMD drivers million times. Also tried reinstalling windows. Is this a hardware issue? When i connect to second display it works fine on second display. Really need to figure out this issue..

 

Please help!!

 

Thanks
