Holy cr@p, that was too easy!  I hadn't noticed the down-facing arrow next to power.  :smileyembarrassed:

 

Thanks once again, indest!

Re: Yoga 2 Pro - Screen Flickering and Screen Blanking

I have tried everything out of those mentioned solutions and nothing works. I have even tried disabling the service for brightness, still no joy.

 

I'm terribly dissapointed by the non-responsivness and false information by Lenovo's support. Saying their newest BIOS fixed it when in fact it was the same old BIOS that did nothing. Why are you playing us like that? I've spent my hard earned money on this thing intended for serious work and now all I'm getting is false hope and ignoring me.

 

I'm writing a review for my experience with this laptop where I will explain all these flaws and I have recorded a video of both flickering problems. I will be posting the link here soon and I expect comments from people with similar issues just so we can see if we have the same problem or not. I refuse to give up my 1200 euros and throw them in the wind. I paid for an actual working device and I like to own one such device. My work has suffered ever since I bought this laptop, I don't plan to change laptops every few months just because of one uresponsible product and more importantly support.

all... I uninstalled the graphic drivers and installed the latest ones from Intel directly. I have not hand the screen blanking issue since then (hopefully it wont reappear :)  )

 

If just installing the new intel driver doesnt help, then uninstall it from device manager (but do not tick the checkbox that asks to delete the driver.) Once you uninstall, windows will reinstal it (using the saved copy which was not deleted). This I believe should help.

 

I have never had the flickering issue and I have the occasional screen backlight dimming (which is a Win8 feature) but I am ok with it.

 

What has not been resolved yet is the #$*% WiFI issue on my laptop .. no matter which driver I use   :(

The answer is: Deactivate automatic brightness in power options........

 

At least it did the trick for me in the last 6 months. :P That and I limited min brightness in the registry.

This is what I did in the first place and nothing changed. Everything from this guide has been done: http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Idea-Windows-based-Tablets-and/Yoga-2-Pro-Auto-brightness-feature-and-how-to-disable-in-Windows/ta-p/1294763

 

I even tried disabling that service for the brighntess that someone in the comments suggested.

 

Didn't change a thing. The flickering continues at low brightness settings and on battery.

It's surprising, this is the first time I've ever had this flickering issue (1 hour ago) and I realized that it happened after I upgraded the intel graphics drivers... I just thought it was because I forgot to disable the auto-brightness (Which I find terribly annoying anyway)

 

This thread made me realize 2 things: Lenovo has horrible driver support and I that paid way too much for the crappy service and quality Lenovo has supplied as of now with this Yoga 2 pro purchase.

just wanted to say i've moved onto a Dell XPS 13.  great little computer, much happier with my perfect screen that doesn't flicker and change brightness randomly.  it's a shame i had to do that, i wanted to love the yoga 2 pro, but after 6 months of this, it was time.  actually, i waited way too long, i should've done this awhile ago.  take care and good luck

So, the yoga pro. 3 has now been announced. It might be at least a little worthwhile to take to social media.  Let prospective buyers know of the unresolved screen flickering problem with the yoga pro 2.

 

I did yesterday and plan to bring it up getting the word out.
