Y70-70 Touch Laptop screen flicker

2017-05-02, 19:03 PM

Hello

 

I'm new to this forum.

Recently i got a lenovo Y700 laptop with Win 10 from the company where i work. the model itself is a bit older and has older components.

The issue i have is that occasionally the screen flickers when i'm using it. it's extremely irregular and unpredictable. moving the screen does not provoke it, it just happens on it's own. it NEVER happens when i'm running a game with the NVidia graphics card, from what i can tell it happens only when i'm not really doing anything with the computer. like when i'm on the internet or somewindows programs. Sometimes it goes black for a fraction of a second and sometimes it turns a weird purplish color for a fraction of a second. i've tried to get it on camera but haven't suceeded yet.

i've tried updating all my drivers and it hasn't had and effect.

i have Intel HD graphics 4600 and NVidia GeForce GTX 860M

 

everything else is running perfectly

Y70-70 Touch Laptop (Lenovo)

Serial Number *******
Machine Type Model 80DU00NLMT
 
Mod's Edit: Serial number removed from public view to protect owner from its unwanted use.

In addition to Crosspython,

Right click on Desktop and select "Graphic Properties"
