Re: screen fickering on Y40-80 on battery

I like to know what is Lenovo's official response to faulty screens and batteries on Y40-80 laptops that were sold to customers?

Just to confirm, I also replaced the screen and the laptop works fine now.

Mod's Edit: link to drivers was removed at the request of member since they did not resolve the issue.   Member is still looking to resolve the problem.

Which drivers did you update?

 

The AMD and the Intel Display drivers?  Both on mine on the system are either equivalent (AMD) or later (Intel).

 

Was there another driver you updated?

 

This laptop is essentially power cord mandatory at this point.

Re: screen fickering on Y40-80 on battery

I had not used my laptop in a long while, and decided to try to fix this issue today. It appears updating the AMD drivers fixed the flickering on battery for me as well on Windows 10. Looks like the AMD Catalyst Control Center is reporting

Driver Packaging Version: 15.20.1050-150630a-186237C-Lenovo

 

I was about to order a replacement screen and/or battery to try to fix this issue. Glad the driver worked. It's a shame that Lenovo didn't jump on this and figure it out and let us know.

I'm pretty sure from there. Unsure if that's still the version that fixed my issue, but looks like those are from 2015, so you may get lucky.
