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.

the screen goes from white to black and some times with line in between the white to normal screen. it happens as the laptop is being turned on and loading as well as when it has running. is happed when ive turned it on for a bit or running for a while. its alway a fast flickering. i have tried moving the screen back and forth an sometimes it stops it but not always. after the flickering stops the colors of my screen are normal.

I downloaded the link and used the driver detective but my screen is still flickering
Expert:  vasanth replied 7 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.
