Re: flashing screen

Hi @GicareeV!


Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums.


When did the issue start? Did the issue persist on one specific software only? Kindly unplug the docking station and try to access the BIOS settings on your laptop and observe if the screen will experience the same problem.


If the screen is not flashing without the docking station, we suggest that you update the ThinkPad USB-C Dock Gen 2.
