ideapad 720s-13arr screen flickers - bios/amd driver update

2019-08-24, 11:34 AM

Hello, 

 

I hope somebody here might be able to help me:

 

So I noticed like 2 weeks ago that my screen flickers, when the cpu, ram or gpu usage is high. Once the usage drops, the screen stops flickering and everything goes back to normal. 

Now is my question: Can this be related to the bios and amd drivers? 

I tried to update my bios but it throws me an error that I can´t update my bios. Currently I have the 6KCN28WW version running. 

My amd driver version is 19.5.2 regarding the amd auto-detect software. 

 

Thanks in advance!

 

Chris

Hey, 

 

no worries, I figuered it alredy out by myself. It was a driver issue. I installled the latest AMD graphic drivers and apparently it caused the flickering screen issue. After deleting the driver and installing the previous version it was all fine. 

 

Thanks anyways for your reply. 

 

Cheers!
