Lenovo G500 flickering image in-game

2015-04-22, 22:30 PM

Hello there.
So I bought my laptop several months ago, a G500, i3 3110m 2.4GHz, 4gb RAM and AMD HD 8570m. The problem is that when I try to play some games like South Park the Stick of Truth or Heroes of the Storm, I get some sort of flickering of the image, like the first image that appears stays still and the rest of the game runs around it changing between these too, if you know what I mean. I'm running on Win 8.1 now and when I had Win 7 I had the same problem but I found out that it was because of the latest driver, once I installed the driver from the lenovo website I didn't have this problem. On 8.1, I tried with the latest driver and with the one from the lenovo website but no luck so far, should I try some different versions or what do you guys think? Thanks in advance.

You can try installing the driver for windows 8 using "compatibility" settings. Also - install AMD Catalyst drivers for Windows 8.1

I do not work for Lenovo, I only provide suggestions based on my personal willingness to help others. All advice and comments are based on my experience, and do not reflect Lenovo policy, terms or conditions.

Using the compatibility mode did not work, unfortunately. Also, I have the catalyst drivers installed and the latest amd drivers. Thanks for the advice, though.
