Small separate bar of screen beneath taskbar and screen is flickering sometimes

2018-05-24, 9:31 AM

Hello,

 

I'm kinda new in posting here so correct me if I'm doing something wrong. Since a week or so my laptop has been showing some weird behaviour. I have a Lenovo 520-15IKB (Type 80YL) Ideapad.

 

The first thing I noticed was that I now have a very small bar of what is seemingly the top of my screen, under my taskbar. It sometimes goes away when I have restarted my laptop however it always comes back.

 

The second thing is that sometimes my screen flickers black for a moment and then returns to normal (always with the bar of screen beneath my taskbar). This happens the most while watching vids on Youtube or so.

 

I can't find how to fix this, my laptop is about half a year old. Can somebody help me please?

Hello KayGee

Thanks for using the Lenovo forums.


Are you able to post a picture of this at all?

 

Does this happen when you move the screen about also by any chance?

 

Try to download the Video and Chipset drivers for the unit from the support page. Make sure to reboot after an update on the unit.

 

Hope this helps, let us know how you get on.
