S205 screen flickering

Friends,

 

I have one realy anoying problem. Since I buy my Ideapad s205 ( E300, 2GB RAM, 320HDD, HD6310 )

i wanted to put Linux, first I tried is PCLinuxOS, but with flickering with generic drivers,

then I tried Ubuntu 11.10 x64 also with flickering but after instaling Properietary drivers... with generic it was ok???

And for try I instaling Win 7 64bit Ultimte, using drivers from CD, and also get flickering... tryed downloading drivers from internet but without sucess. Only time when I get rid of flickering is when I changed from 32-bit ( True color ) to 16-bit (High colour )

So what can I do!? I thik that there is some problem with Mother board or with... RAM?

 

Please take a look on this short video and help me if you can.

Best regards,

Jovica

Re: S205 screen flickering

Did you ever solve this problem? 

 

I've experienced the same issue (and, in my case, the only way to temporarily solve it is by rebooting).

Re: S205 screen flickering

No, the latest drivers don't fix it.   Windows is fully patched; all of my drivers are up to date (I get my video drivers from AMD, not Lenovo), and I still get random "electrical interference" lines across the screen horizontally.

 

Since rebooting stops it, it is unlikely to be a hardware issue.  Am still trying to isolate what triggers it.
