Display flicker for Lenovo 320-15IKB-81BG

Hi everyone,

 

I have recently purchased an IdeaPad 320-15 IKB and i'm experiencing some weird flickering of the display. The problem is that I don't think it's a hardware issue, because starting windows in Safe Mode solves it. As you can imagine, I cannot use the laptop in safe mode Smiley Happy 

Has anybody experienced this behaviour and are there any fixes? Drivers i could install/uninstall? Software i should check? My main concern is determine the cause of this. Smiley Sad

 

What i tried until now: uninstalling and reinstalling Intel/Nvidia drivers, applied a display flicker fix from Norton (even though i'm using Bitdefender) - i know... but desperate times - and i ran out of ideas. 

I would get it to an authorised service, but as i said before, chances are it's not a HW issue.

 

Thanks Smiley Very Happy

Try uninstalling Intel HD graphics 620 drivers and normaly use your computer and see if the flickering stops. I guess it will. It's not a fix in any way, but better than safe mode.

Pretty... Brutal solution Smiley Happy Wouldn't this affect the performance of the laptop? Aren't there any official fixes for this? Smiley Sad

I know, but couldn't find anything else to stop the flickering, makes you have headaches.

It seems like the particular model has some sort of a problem, i have found numerous cases of people complaining about the same thing around the internet. 
Even at the forums here:

Well, i have submitted the issue at Intel and we'll see if they have a workaround for this, or maybe even a fix Smiley Very Happy I will keep you posted if anything else occurs. Meanwhile i will uninstall the driver Smiley Sad
