thinkpad yoga ultrabook screen flickers

2014-07-11, 13:29 PM

I just got a thinkpad yoga and I have noticed since I started using it that the screen randomly flickers.  I can't narrow it down to a time where I'm doing a specific task.  Any help in tracking down the problem would be greatly appreciated.

I am using the default settings which is "Balanced".  I tried changing it to Maximum but that didn't seem to make a difference.  Below is a screenshot:

Thanks thinkpadfreak....Turning off the "Panel self-refresh" option seemed to do the trick.
