Yoga 710-15IKB Laptop: extreme screen flickering

Hello all--am seriously considering returning this laptop---if this cannot be resolved.  Just bought thiis laptop about a month ago.  Doesn't matter which browser I use, but within 15-20 min online it starts to flicker violently (the word that comes to mind), and also today started blacking out.  It only does this when I am online, and it doesn't matter which site I am on.  It happens with all browsers, but with IE it starts almost within minutes of going online.  I am forced to shut the browser down. I've tried the Lenovo suggested Task Manager check---but I have not downloaded any apps that might be interfering.  Literally, this laptop is brand new! I've not installed anything. I don't want to remove the battery...I shouldn't have to do all this stuff to a brand new machine. It's frustrating since I got this specifically to do online things---work, design, surf, etc. I've searched hte knowledge base and the community and cannot see anything similar except for Tablets. Any ideas anyone?  TIA, Diane

Re: Yoga 710-15IKB Laptop: extreme screen flickering

I am having the same exact problem. I got this lenovo 7 weeks ago for my kid at college and she is having terrible screen flickering. I have tried updating the computer and nothing. It seems like this is a main problem with this laptop because there is many complaints online. I purchase a ASUS and this Lenovo and kept the Lenovo because of a previous laptop that I have working great. Now I am regretting it and should have kept the ASUS.
