Hello there!

 

Please let me know the below required information->

 

1. Do you see the display tinted from the moment the computer boots up. Or does it happens only after Windows loads.

2. Move the laptop's screen back and forth a bit 3-5 times slowly. Do you see any change in the display's color/tint.

3. Is the color of the tint same everytime you boot up computer or does it change.

 

thanks

I downloaded the link and used the driver detective but my screen is still flickering
Expert:  vasanth replied 4 years ago.

ok, this can happen because of following reasons

1. Your display (LCD Screen) has gone bad and needs to be replaced. 99% this is the issue in your case.

2. The cable connecting the motherboard and the display has a crack or is loose.

This is not a software problem and needs repair/replacement of the malfunctioning part.

If laptop is in warranty contact for free repair. Else take a quote from few shops and then get it repaired.

 

thanks

After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents.
