X1 Yoga 3rd Gen Display Issues: occasional screen tear on scrolling

2018-04-06, 3:53 AM

Hey everyone,


I got my X1 Yoga 3rd gen a couple days ago with an HDR screen, and noticed that when I scroll up and down in Chrome and OneNote, there is a screen tear quite noticeable with a zig-zag shape is like this:









I had the same problem when I got the 2nd gen X1 Yoga, which was fixed after a graphics driver upate from Lenovo. Anyone else experiening this issue? Is there a way to ask if Lenovo is aware of this issue / plans to release a driver update to fix it? 


Thanks a lot,

I have seen this happen once on my X1Y3, with exactly that shape. Searching around I found another report of this in a X1Y2 as well, see here. (edit: wait, that's probably you :) ) First I thought it was some kind of Chrome bug, but it also happened in Word. This was after installing all available updates. A reboot fixed it for me and I haven't seen it since. I hope it stays that way, because it's very annoying when it happens.
