Lenovo P400 Touch screen flickering when closing or readjusting lid

Hi.  I was wondering if guys have any ideas on this.


I have a Lenovo P400 Touch laptop and everytime I close the lid or adjust it the screen flickers.  Sometimes it even goes out.  It usually comes back when I readjust the lid.


Anyhow, when I'm using the laptop the screen usually never flickers.  Just when I readjust the lid or close the laptop.


I had a service plan with Best Buy (which I don't have anymore) so I had them try to fix it.  After having it for 4 weeks they said they replaced the LCD screen and they said the screen checked out fine before they sent it back to me.  But when I got it back it eventually started doing the same thing, flickering when I close or adjust the lid.  So I don't think the problem is the LCD screen since it's a brand new LCD screen.


What do you guys think the problem is and how can I fix it?

hi Tecmo_SB_Guy,


Thanks for Posting!


Best thing to isolate it first is to go inside the BIOS Mode.

Tap F2 When you turn on the computer.


Now Once inside BIOs Adjust the LCd and check if the proble is still there.


If No This has something to do with the Software,

If Yes, Then this is not Software, You might be having problem with the LCD Cable, a Lenovo system should have 1 Year standard warranty with Lenovo. You can give them a call for assistance
