Lenovo 700-11ISK Screen Flashes (goes dark briefly)

I have a new Lenovo Laptop with Windows 10 preinstalled. For some reason the screen flashes (goes dark and then comes back). I'm not sure why this is happening. Lenovo Solutions doesn't find any updates. There are some Lenovo Solution Center display-related options but i'm not sure what they do.

Welcome to the forums Pencilboy!

 

Set Intel graphics to Max Performance.

  • Right click on the Desktop
  • Select Graphics Properties
  • Click on Power
  • In both the Plugged In and On Battery tabs, select Maximum Performance (I also disabled the setting to extend battery life for gaming on battery). 

Disable Adaptive Brightness for both Battery and Plugged-In Power Options

  • Right click the Power icon in your System Tray
  • Select Power Options
  • Click Change Plan Settings next to whichever power plan you have selected
  • Click Change Advanced Power Settings
  • Open the Display menu from the list
  • Open Enable Adaptive Brightness
  • Change the setting to Off for both On Battery and Plugged In options. 

Could you update your DirectX and see if that helps?

 

Let us know how you get on.

Regards,
