Thinkpad E560 random screen flashing

2017-03-14, 15:05 PM

Hello, Does anybody experienced this problem on Thinkpad E560?


Whenever I use it whether in battery or via AC adapter, the screen flashes randomly. It flashes similar when our eyes are blinking. When I use my machine, the screen flashing occurs 2-4 times. It doesn't affect what I'm doing but the thing is this is very annoying. I tried the following solution: changed the refresh rate to 60 Hz and disabled refresh rate switching in the intel graphic driver. The flashing is still present although it solved screen flashing when switching from battery to AC adapter and vice-versa.


From the recent posts, I have observed that a flickering problem is present when the machine is connected to external monitor. I think this is a major problem for this thinkpad model.


Anybody who knows solution to this problem? I'm using Windows 7 pre-installed OS with integrated graphics driver.
