New Yoga 700 11. Screen flickers continuously after returning from sleep. Stops after a reboot.
Problem started right after unboxing and remains after running Windows Update. Windows now at version 1511. Intel HD Graphics driver now at 126.96.36.19900. Searching for Intel HD Graphics driver updates from Device Manager doesn't detect anything -- though I see the Intel site has a 188.8.131.5252 version that claims to address screen flicker.
Automated brightness management is off. The laptop is plugged in, so battery power saving shouldn't be a factor.
Question for the community: can I install the 4352 driver from the Intel site? Or do I have to wait for Lenovo to add special OEM features to the stock Intel driver?

I would install the graphics driver found on the Lenovo website:

That's generally good advice. However:
- The 4279 version currently available on the Lenovo support site is the version that was installed out of the box, when the flickering problem first appeared. I tried rolling back to it, but that didn't fix the problem.
- Windows Update insists on rolling forward to the 4300 version, despite my selecting "don't update drivers" in the System Control Panel.
By the way, the Intel 4352 version doesn't install as it's "not validated for this computer".
Any other Lenovo Yoga 700 owners having this problem with the Intel Core m3-6Y30 and HD Graphics 515?

I downloaded the Intel 4352 driver version from the Intel support site and installed it using the procedure described by snoop_rogg at https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-Yoga-Series-Notebooks/yoga-700-failed-test-in-solution-centre/td.... This bypasses the "driver not validated" roadblock.
The 4352 version solved the flickering problem completely. Also, the same version got reinstalled a while later by Windows Update, so presumably this problem will now go away when people run Windows Update as usual.
