Hello,

Try this 1

1) Try updating the "Display drivers".

2) Check your screen resolution and also the screen refresh rate.

You can find the screen refresh rate in display properties --> "Settings"tab -->

Click on the "Advanced" button --> Clik on "Monitor" tab --> Try the "Screen

refresh rate" 60 Hertz

3) If the problem still exists then

When you switch ON your laptop, keep pressing the "F8" key to get

"Windows Advanced Options"( if boot menu appears, press "Esc" key and keep

tapping the F8 key)

Select the option "Enable VGA Mode" --> Press Enter

If the problem still exists then

Connect an external monitor to your laptop. Just look for the VGA connector (

there will be a monitor symbol ) in your laptop and connect it to the external

monitor then switch ON your laptop.

Note : If you failed to get the display in external monitor, then use the proper

combination keys(like Fn+F5/ the function key that's having the monitor symbol

on it) to toggle between your laptop screen and the external monitor.

Now check if the flickering problems exists in the external monitor or not.

If the flickering problem only exists on the laptop screen then the problem may be

coming from the inverter which is going bad.

Good Luck
