This time I get a vidz of the display flicker
It don't flicker like this normally but this one is more funny, but just by taking it from the left corner on the table give me this.
That would be great that some lenovo could answer to the thread.
But for me it's hard to call support, I need my laptop daily and don't have time to deals with phone support.
And it's sound like a design failure... I would appreciate that lenovo tech support contact us, since it's an expensive laptop (for me).
I don't even retalk about the battery inside since is almost a joke, they lost capacity quickly (maybe for a new thread)

I had the same problem and fixed it.
I opened the bottom and tightened the screws of the internal battery and harddisk. Then put it back together and tightened the screws for the bottom.
No problem since.

I am from India and facing the same issue with my Thinkpad X 240 purchased in June 2015. I have complained to lenovo many times and they have changed the motherboard and RAM but issue is still there. Screen Flickers any time and screen got freeze if I move X240 from one place to another.
I undersnd that this is manufacturing defect / design issue from Thinkpad.
Lenovo must take some action and replace faulty X 240 Series laptos immediately.

I am having these same issue on X260. I will try and get the screws tightened on the left side although I know the HDD is now on the right side. Only the memory is on the left.

Yep here on an x260. I took off the lid to see what specifically might reproduce it. Couldn't identify anything. Just applying pressure on the left palm rest to flex the board a little causes the thing to crash. The screen blacks out with a flash of a few small rectangles with noise.
Never happened before just happened one day. Now I can't even put my computer to sleep and carry it around in my backpack. It'll just crash. Also seems to the a problem where if the computer is on for long enough, the screen freezes and the colors slowly fade to black. seems to be independt of this crash, cause appying pressure can still crash it while it fades.

I have the same issue in my X250. But the HDD is on the right side since X250 models I guess. It appears the sensitive area is where the processor and ram are. Did anybody find a solution to this ..? Would be highly appreciated.
