The SSD [RapidDrive] isn't really an issue, just want to know how it works with Windows so I can take advantage of hardware that I've paid for. With Linux, I can write /boot and / to the 32gig SSD [RapidDrive] then put my other parts on the HDD because they are accessed less, which makes sense.

 


The driver combines the two and removes the partition table from the SSD. If you boot to linux and write a partition table to the ssd using gparted, you can see and install Windows to only the SSD. Smiley Happy

@all,

Is this issue visible if you were to capture it using camera or a video cam?

 

For those who are having this issue, please update the drivers to the latest available on the support site and test. If problem persist, we would need a volunteer from the US to ship their laptop into the lab

I too am having this problem with mostly light colors. I'd be willing to send my computer in for testing, if I could get a loaner and compensation for the inconvenience.

 

Example Colors: rgb(210,214,249)  rgb(238,238,238)  rgb(232,238,250)

 

I haven't tested cool vs hot, time since boot, or power plans. I will test and reply or edit. Thanks for your help Lenovo staff.

 

@edit: Video via HDMI and VGA is clean to a 120hz Sony LCD TV @1080P.

Edit2: On battery vs plugged in doesn't make a difference.

Edit3: I would also send it in if you'd exchange it for a similar spec'd y570. (I'm being serious too, not kidding... email me if we can talk mdneilson at gmail dot com)

Here is a video of the problem. It isn't great quality, but you can see the dancing pixels at the bottom of the Chrome tab underneath the text "Speed Dial."

Re: Lenovo y560p dancing pixels again!!!

To Lenovo Staff:

Is there any info about the "dancing pixels" problem? At least some feedback would be good...

Or we'll have to live with this problem forever?

Re: Lenovo y560p dancing pixels again!!!

I'm really getting annoyed at the slow response on here... why have Lenovo reps on here if they aren't going to communicate?

@All,

Engineering mentioned that they are unable to see the issue thus would require a machine shipped in. Also we aren't able to provide a loader / compensation for this. If you are not willing to send the system in then do contact service to get the hardware checked.

I'm afraid I can't send my laptop Smiley Sad

But Mdneilson a few posts ago asked about how long you'll need the laptop for tests
