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
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.
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.

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.

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 I will keep you posted if anything else occurs. Meanwhile i will uninstall the driver
