Y530: blinking (flickering), white screen

Hello!

 

I have Y530 with Vista 32-bit and problem with blinking (white) screen shortly after boot, usually after Windows load and asked for login. I suppose that it happens when working on battery - but I'm not sure.

 

Can you help? Smiley Happy

Hello mate,

 

You can try to install the latest driver.

 

For Intel : http://consumersupport.lenovo.com/us/en/DriversDownloads/drivers_show_947.html

For NVidia : http://consumersupport.lenovo.com/us/en/DriversDownloads/drivers_show_948.html

 

If it doesn't solve the problem, call Lenovo for the warranty look like a hardware problem.

Nope but some Y530 are equipped with intel and some with nvidia. As I didn't know your model I posted the 2 options.

I see. I have GeForce 9600M GS but installed drivers directly from NVidia site - that drivers from Lenovo are from 2008... But mayby that is solution. Smiley Happy Thanks again.
