X201i - external display flickers

I've had this problem since the first day I got it. I don't think it's my monitor's problem since it's the same situation on two different displays. I'm running windows XP. Today I decided I can't live with it.


I've tried everything I got from online knowledge base. I just updated my BIOS and display driver. I adjusted the graphic power plan setting to "on battery". I even ungrounded my display's plug. None of them works.


Forgot to mention, it stops flickering whenever I unplug and run on battery. And interestingly enough, whenever I start skype video, the flickering stops too.


More update: the flickering stops if I set external screen as the only display.


And update: I unplugged my ethernet and now it's not flickering! Gotta go with wireless!
