Lenovo P50 external display just shutts off and flickers from time to time

2016-11-21, 8:33 AM


new proud owner of a Lenovo P50 here.
But I have an anoying thing to report.

I'm using a system with Intel HD 530 + Nvidia Quadro M1000M. Bios version 1.35, currently 21/11/2016.
The machine is on a Lenovo Pro dock (with 230w PSU) and I have 1 screen hooked up via DP to DP cable.
It seems that when I watch Netflix with Firefox or with any other browser for that matter, the external display just shutts of  when I choose a next eppisode. Meaning it refreshes the flash window from what I understand.
When turning the screen completely off and on again. The picture on the external screen is back like nothing is wrong.

Another annoying thing is that the screen seems to flicker from time to time. In the screen corner like it overlapps some windows or something. It's only for a splittseccond but it's bad never the less.

Any ideas on how to fix this?
