  1. Screen Flicker on Surface Pro 5


    So out of the blue the screen started to flicker on my Surface. I know this is a known issue for the 4 but not for the 5. I love using my surface so I've been trying everything to try and fix it. But i've run out of ideas. Here is what i've done:


    - talked to the windows store for help they told me it was hardware and I had to replace it

    - got the device to boot to Linux, with no screen flicker, proving it was a software issue

    - deleted the drive and reinstalled windows 10 pro Did it twice, once with updates and one without

    - made sure it couldn't go to sleep


    I'm not sure what else I can do. Any ideas before I wipe it and go to Ubuntu?

    :)

    Surface Pro 4 - Half of my screen Flickers / Shakes

    Maybe caused by hardware

    It looks like a that your gpu (intel hd graphics) is going to conk out! If this is the case, then its a hardware problem and the microsoft support or any other technical workshop would be the last hope for your surface.

    I had the a similar problem with my notebook. It was a hardware issue and the only thing that I could do was it to send to the manufacturer support. He told me the same as I told above, and it was true.

    Or is it just a bug?

    Below are maybe some interesting article:


    After a small google search folling possibilities to troubleshoot this issue:

    • One article above say that this issue is caused by when the Hyper-V role got installed. They say a deinstallation of Hyper-V from your Surface shoud fix this problem.
    • In other article I read that this issue is caused after a bad update of the intel hd graphics drives. Get the old driver version back or what until microsfot fix this bug!
