I used to get a little studdering on the screen before I manually updated the Intel video driver. I thought it was normal and didn't really give it much attention...but after updating the driver (for other reasons) things seem much more fluid.....

I'm also having the flickering problem, not on my X1 itself but on the extended monitor. I've updated everything and many solution discussions note turning off the refresh. With Windows 10 I can't find that option.

i thought the updates resolved the problem but that was not the case!
the screen flickering came back a while ago so i went to the authorized lenovo service. they suspected it was either the graphic card or the lcd screen. after hooking up the laptop onto an external monitor the problem was with the lcd screen; the laptop flickered but not the monitor.
so the brand new x1 came with a faulty lcd screen and it is being replaced right now.

I'm having the same issue on my 6th Gen Carbon X1, brand new from Lenovo as well. Was curious if the scrren replacement fixed the issue or if there are other solutions out there. Thanks!

I bought x1 6th gen 3 months ago. Today my x1 6th screen started to turn off for a few secs and then came back. So it started flashing randomly. The symptoms looked similar to what have reported on this site.
Does it mean i have to contact Lenovo service to replace the LCD? :-(

Yeah, you'll probably want to submit a service request. I got my X1 Carbon 6th gen back a few weeks ago and the flickering and screen turning off periodically seems to have been resolved with a replacement screen. Annoying, I know. Good luck!

Hello, I am using the X1 7th Gen and having the same flickering issue. tried uninstalling display drivers and restalled after restarting. tried several options but seems one worked as temp solution. when connected to external display, both the external and lenovo screen are stable. If you disconnet external monitor, again screen starts flickering. Have to try display change .
