When on battery my screen flickers to the point that the laptop is unusable. No problems while it's plugged in. This issue started under Windows 8, but only appeared when using heavy graphic applications like Photoshop. Under Windows 10 it starts happening almost immediately when unplugging the power.
I've tried changing the power options to ensure it's set to maximum performance while on battery, and tried both on and off for the adaptive display options with no improvement. I've seen "replace the LCD panel" as a solution in another thread but that does not seem to be a logical fix given that the system works fine under power.
Anyone have any other suggestions? This seems to be a common problem, so I'm hoping there's a driver/update fix. Has anyone tried getting a new battery?

Battery status says it's good. I also saw a suggestion on another site and hooked up an external monitor. No flickering on the external monitor while on battery, so I'm leaning toward the battery not being the issue.
