Strange Flickering Problem with my Y500 Screen

So I've had my Y500 for about 4 months now, and just today I noticed something quite unusual to me when I clicked a link from a friend to www.ratemyteachers.com. I noticed the blue borders on the sides of the screen were flickering and wavering like crazy, but nothing else displayed a single problem.

 

After some research, I've found other posts showcasing such instances of flickering on different makes and models of laptops.

 

Here's a prime example that I found:

The above image drives my screen absolutely wild.

 

I'm wondering if all Y500 15" 1080p screens have this problem, or if this is an isolated issue for my particular Y500 screen.

 

Anyone with (or even without) a Y500, please do let me know if you do or do not see the flickering on your screens!

 

Thanks so much, everyone!

The blue on the screen flickers for me too. It's an issue with the website. Scroll down the page and it goes away, it's only at the top of the page that it does it.

It looks normal on most screens; check the second link in my post to see what causes our screens to do that.

 

I'll assume all Y500 screens have this problem, though.

The second screenshot looks like a graphic driver crash to me.
