Hi,

I'm new to this site; hope you can help.

My college students each have a Lenovo with screen flicker problems. One is a Yoga 2 Pro running Windows 10. The other is a Y50-70 running Windows 8.1. All drivers seem up to date. I have run Avast antivirus on each; also Malwarebytes.

The problem does not occur when in Safe Mode with Networking. 

Any ideas what I can do?

Thank you

Dave

My guess is its a bad screen....safe mode doesnt use all the same colors/textures that safe mode does, which is why safe mode doesnt have any issues. Screens are usually relatively cheap and easy to replace on a laptop.

Thank you for your insight. I was hoping it would be a simple setting. I guess I'll take it in to get it fixed. Nothing else seemed to work.

you could, but you could also fix it yourself, usually there are youtube videos going through how to change screens on each individual laptop. Theyre generally not hard, 9 times out of 10 its a simple matter of removing the bezel from around the screen, pulling it out, unplugging it and plugging the new one in. For that matter, it might just be a loose plug.
