THINKPAD x100e PROBLEMS screen flicker

2010-02-02, 20:32 PM

Let me start by saying I am really enjoying the x100e (size wise)

I am currently running the 8.66 catalyst drivers.

EVERY TIME - note every time I run video (hd) black lines will appear on the screen running up and down. They will appear in the movie screen itself (sparingly). They will , however, occur all over the place (many many many times) if I am in another window. It is not the drivers fault, I have pre-emptied this response by updating to the most current versions of all drivers. I have formatted the computer more than once and re-installed all drivers from scratch, making sure to clean old drivers (too). 

I even tried to update to the 10.1 catalyst driver. However, I think lenovo locks you out of doing this.

I have even returned the laptop to frys (the black box store) and exchanged it for another laptop (to rule out a bad chipset). 

I have tried so dearly to love this laptop, even without the soon-to-be-coming dual core processors, but I will be forced to return this laptop if these issues cannot be resolved. 

EDIT: bios is also updated to the most current version 1.10a

Please HELP
