Re: yoga 3 pro - screen wont stop flickering since installing windows 10!

2015-08-16, 3:37 AM

Hi Amy and all others,

 

I had shared the same issue since upgrading to windows 10 that made me downgrade to 8.1 again. Until 2 days ago, I found Amy's solution and downloaded the latest BIOS, as well as other drivers, and upgraded to windows 10 again.

Yesterday worked fine. It seemed to have solved the solution and I was happy with my lenovo yoga 3 pro again.

However, I am again experiencing the same flickering issue since today. 

 

I wish I can upload a video of my screen (if this can help in any way I would be happy to do so). So again I'm here contemplating going through the long and time-consuming process of downgrading to windows 8.1 again, or just sticking with using my laptop on another monitor (on second screen mode). 

 

One thing to note is that when I'm using my laptop on dual screen mode, only the yoga 3 pro's screen flickers and does not affect the second screen/monitor. This was the same before the BIOS upgrade. 

 

Hope Lenovo can respond?

Thanks

Problem  seemed to go away after I rolled back driver to .4240 but a couple of days later it returned. So yes, screen flicker occurs with both versions of the graphic driver. 

Doesn't seem to be related to leaving laptop idle either. Today I shut it down for an hour, booted it up and it flickered right from the get go.

@jtitman

Windows 10 TP versions did not exhibit this issue (not for me atleast). Even still some random Y3P are showing this. My Y3P was fine after a re-install of windows 10 (without the BIOS fix).

 

@mhz4016

Di you apply the BIOS fix?

The BIOS flash absolutely fixes the problem. Haven't had the flickering in three day. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Sounds like good news but still the odd report of flickering. As I'm going on vacation think I'll stay with my 8.1 setup for a while longer and play the cynic in this for now especially as Win10 doesn't seem to be bringing anything new to the party - for me anyway. Also I'm kind of wary of OS's updating themselves without my knowledge of what is being updated. I know this can easily be disabled with a 'local account' but why oh why have M$oft gone down this road. Is it to promote their Store - me being cynical again and no, I won't pay them a penny to remove the ads from Solitaire!!

 

Irrespective as to the BIOS, the graphics driver should be robust enough even though Win10 is paddling away during idle time updating itself. I'm no programmer though so just supposition on my part.

I've been flicker free since the BIOS update. Thanks again Amy for the rapid fix. 

 

BTW... Love the rebranded logo on boot. :)

Thank you for the link. I tried to install it few times but it kept failing. It had AC power at the time but I had it in conservation mode. It seemed to install fine when I tried it again with the battery at 100%.
Not sure if it was a coincidence but thought I would post my experience.
