Sorry, it cut everything off when quoted. For GP settings, i can't read the values you set for Device ID's fully. Can you provide text for these?

Thanks again for the guide. Hope this helps as i have had this sitting on a shelf for 6-9 months and was about to go but another and thought to give this one more shot....after i renamed it to POS after i did a fresh install and still had the issue (thought it was an issue from upgrade to 8.1 to 10 at the time)

Hi Ryi,

 

I'm running "Intel Graphics Driver for Windows 10 (64-bits) - 15.40.37.4835 - From Intel" without a single flicker event for months now with Energy Manager trick.
You can get your driver values @ Device Manager \ Display Adapters \ Intel HD Graphics Family \ Details \ Hardware IDs \ Value

You can order a new Battery for USD70.00

 

Y2P_Battery.jpgOriginal Lenovo Battery L12M4P21


Just Google it! NEWEGG's Offer
I already upgraded my Y2P (20266) with:

 

- New Original Lenovo Battery L12M4P21
- New Samsung 850 EVO 1TB mSata
- New Intel Dual Band Wireless AC 7260 NGW
- Windows 10 Professional (1709)

 

Compared with other new Ultrabook (2-1) I'm totally satisfied with my 3 years old version.

ah, perfect! you beat me to researching it.  Thanks!  BTW, how many hours are you getting off the new battery?  i have been seeing some reviews that they are not getting over 3hrs with replacements?  also, good improvement for WiFi with that radio?

I don't see any difference in battery performance now compared to when it was new (3 years ago).

 

- Watching Netflix (Full HD) or 1080P MKV Movie through WiDi (Wireless Display / Miracast) with Bluetooth (Sound); 4 hours
- Working with Office 2016 (Word or Excel), Internet (Edge) and EMail (MS Mail or Outlook 2016) simultaneously; 6 - 8 hours

 

NOTE: I strongly recommend to upgrade WiFi Card with Intel Dual Band Wireless AC 7260 NGW that has great performance and connection stability improvements @ 5Ghz AC.

 

 

I ordered mine @ AMAZON's Offer

Perfect.  Thansk again for all the help.  I just ordered the batt and radio.  Are you using any specific dated driver for the wifi card to make it play nice?
