Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Yoga 4th Gen - Screen Flickering problem

2021-04-13, 19:40 PM

Hey everyone! I need help on the following, my laptop has 1 year and 4 months old, and back in February 2021, the computer started failing. The screen flickers all the time. I had done this to try to solve the problem:

 

- Upgrade the drivers

- Delete the old drivers

- Update the Windows

- Delete Updates on Windows

- Hardware scan on Lenovo Vantage

- Reset 3 times to factory 

- Rollback to old Windows 10 (Currently using 2004) - I used to have the 20H2 and It was the worst. 

- Stopped services that could impact the screen

- Stopped Startups applications

- Go to SafeMode and try to delete the drivers and re-install them. 

 

I have done everything I have found in Lenovo forums and more. 

 

On SafeMode the computer does not flicker, but in Windows 10, it does. I do not know what to do. I called Lenovo and they told me since the computer is out of warranty, I would need to pay. Funny to say that it cost me more than $1200 to have only one year of warranty. 

 

If you know what I can do before thinking it is the GPU, please let me know. Thank you!

Hi GianL, And welcome to the Lenovo Community! You're not very specific about the flickering. Does it flicker 10 times a second? Once every 10 minutes? Regularly or randomly? A bit more info will help the community. I don't see Emergency Reset in your list (button in pinhole on bottom). Hope this helps!
USB-C: Just cos it fits don't mean it works.
I don't work for Lenovo. I'm a crazy volunteer!

Hi banana man, Thank you for your reply. It does after the device has been in sleep mode for let's say 10 minutes and it does it like 10 times a second. When it starts, I have to restart the device. After I restart it, it does it less frequently, once every 5 minutes or sometimes it does it again 10times a second. It also does it if I have a monitor connected. I have not tried the emergency reset. I will try it out. Thank you for the tip.
