  1. Drop-down menus in display settings flickering


    The drop-down menus in the display settings are flickering, making it difficult to adjust resolutions or adjust external monitors sometimes. This is happening on 3 different Lenovo ThinkPad P52 laptops running Windows 10 Enterprise Ver. 1903. I have run all Windows and Lenovo updates, and updated BIOS and display adapters. The problem does not occur in Safe Mode, but does occur in clean boot environment. Any help would be appreciated.

    :)

  2. Drop down menus of screen settings flicker and not able to change options

    Hi,

    I have a problem where the drop down menu of screen settings keep flickering.

    I go to settings-> Display , the orientation drop down menu keeps flickering. It doesn't let me change it from default "landscape".

    Then I go to "advanced display setting" and the resolution drop down menu keeps flickering and doesn't let me change it.

    I tried update the graphics driver and changing the screen refresh rate. But doesn't make a difference.

    Please suggest the fix.

  3. Drop down menus of screen settings flicker and not able to change options

    Hi Roshan,

    The problem with me is not screen flickering.

    The issue is with only the dropdown menu flickering. And that too only in the display settings.

    Please check if you have seen such an issue.
