Screen flickers

2019-06-16, 15:16 PM
I am experiencing intermittent screen flickering issues on my Lenovo T569 laptop.....?  The display acts like it is bad . The odd thing is that the problem is acting like both a hardware and software issue.....? Every once in awhile the mouse pointer will go away and screen will flicker until I reboot the laptop.I am fairly certain somethng is loose because when I shake the laptop the video will flicker as well. The odd thing thing is that this does not happen all the time...? Already tried reloading the drivers and this has not resolved the problems...? Also noticed that the screen flickers during the boot process so makes me think it is hardware related.

I have a touch display and the screen is very expensive.  So can I use a non touch display..? I am fairly certain the video card is built into the motherboard. I am also thinking of using a higher resolution screen can I use that one instead....?

Hi rshimizu12!

 

Welcome to the community forums.

 

The best way to isolate the issue of the flickering screen if this is software or hardware issue is by connecting the laptop to an external monitor. See if the flickering will also appear on the external monitor. If you notice that the screen flickers on the laptop's LCD and not on the external monitor. This is a hardware issue. If both display flickers at the same time, this is a software issue. 

 

That is when we want to proceed if the laptop needs replacement parts or not. 

 

Regards,

Matt_lenovo
