  1. Laptop Screen Flickering issue when the Battery is low and the Computer is unplugged


    PC: ASUS XJ555U

    OS: Windows 10 Home

    Graphics card: Intel HD Graphics 520

    CPU: Intel Core i7-6500U


    The screen of my laptop flickers every time i unplug it and the battery is low enough (the breakpoint is slowly raising and it's now about 70%). I tried several solutions and though some of them worked each of them solved the problem only partially. Here a brief list of what I tried:

    - Updating the drivers, in the rare cases where new drivers were discovered it didn't change anything;

    - Change the Power Plan in the Control Panel, any of the plans available didn't work. I tried a custom plan too but nothing;

    - Change the Power Plan in the Intel Graphics Control Panel, this helped for a little while but then the problem returned;

    - Running lots of troubleshooters, this never helped;

    - Make my built-in NVidia GPU the main rendering card, same as before;

    - Search through every setting the computer had;

    - Running the System File Checker tool through Command Line to check the system files state.


    Please I need help. This issue is really something terrible.

    :)

    Laptop Screen Flickering issue when the Battery is low and the Computer is unplugged

    Screen starts to flicker after logging in for a while


    Hello

    This is an entirely new issue. My screen starts to flicker after logging in/turning on computer for a while, and/or if I launch an app that uses my Nvidia card (my laptop has Optimus), I'm not exactly sure which of these two causes it. For the first while after a restart, the screen appears fine. The flickering appears on desktop background + internet browser as well, so I'm pretty sure it's not a program compatibility issue. The flickering is not severe (the type that looks like horizontal bars sliding up) but it's an annoyance.

    Tried:

    • Disabling Windows error reporting + problem reporting service in msconfig
    • Restart computer
    • Resetting Nvidia global settings to default in Nvidia control panel
    • Checking for display drive updates in device manager (all up to date)
    • Checking monitor refresh rate (60Hz, can't be changed)

    Laptop I'm using:

    • i7-4700MQ 2.4GHz
    • 1900x1080
    • Intel HD 4600 + Nvidia GT750M

    Thanks for suggestions.
