Lenovo Yoga 910 screen graphical glitching/flickering after BIOS update

2017-01-07, 3:03 AM

Hey!

 

Got myself a brand new Yoga 910 and installed the latest BIOS update to fix the fan noise issue: http://support.lenovo.com/se/sv/products/laptops-and-netbooks/yoga-series/yoga-910-13ikb/downloads/ds119202

 

However, immediately after installing the update, the screen started having graphical glitching issues with artifacts flickering on the screen all the time. For example, if I'm on my desktop, I have the Trashcan and Spotify icon at the top of my desktop, and I will see "ghosts" of these icons flickering over the lower half of the screen. I tried updating the graphics driver to the latest version but it didn't help: http://support.lenovo.com/se/sv/products/laptops-and-netbooks/yoga-series/yoga-910-13ikb/downloads/DS119192

 

The graphical artifacts that flicker on the screen seem to be based on what content I have on the screen currently.

 

The computer was fine when I got it. My exact process has been:

 

Getting the computer, everything is fine

Running Windows Update

Using the computer, everything is fine

Downloading and installing latest BIOS update

Noticing flickering which never was there before the BIOS update

Restarting computer

Installing Intel Driver

Restarting Computer

 

But it's still flickering all the time.

 

EDIT: The flickering disappears when I start a game like World of Warcraft or Open RollerCoaster Tycoon 2 (I tested both in windowed mode). When I guit RCT2 the flickering/glitching starts again.

 

Needless to say this makes the laptop unusable. Is there some way to revert to the factory BIOS?

Try toggling hardware acceleration, perhaps?  But it shouldn't be doing that

How do I do that? Can I get the original BIOS somewhere? How can I check if it's a hardware fault or a software fault?

Is this with BIOS v34?
I'm at BIOS v32 (as delivered) and don't see this issue.

Actually I'd try this patch - someone else complained about a similar issue and this was the solution until an updated driver is available http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/products/Laptops-and-netbooks/Yoga-Series/yoga-910-13ikb/downloads/DS119754

It's this BIOS that I linked in the OP, don't know if it's v32 or v34:

Sorry, I missed the reference in your OP.

Thanks for the data point. That's 34.

I installed that patch and restarted the computer but the issue remains. When I've logged in the flickering starts, then I'll launch a program that renders stuff such as a game like Hearthstone, everything will be fine, even in windowed mode, but once I quit and just look at the desktop, or open a browser like firefox, the random flickering of "ghosts" of the top half of the screen at the bottom half returns.

If a Lenovo employee could post here and gives us a link to download the old BIOS to see if that helps, that would be great. My computer was manufactured at the end of september as far as I could tell.

 

I think I might also prefer the old BIOS settings for the fans in any case. Now it's an incessant whistling that never goes away because the fan now more often runs at lower speeds.
