  1. Screen flickering, can't do anything


    A couple of days ago my laptop screen suddenly started flickering - it's not only a visual issue since it's impossible to do anything on the computer either. When I start Task Manager, it is flickering as well. A quick google search tells me that this most likely means that it's an issue with the display drivers. However, I have tried to update these but to no luck.

    A complete reinstall of windows 10 solved the issue temporarily - I was able to use the computer as usual for a couple of hours, but then the screen suddenly started flickering again.

    Anyone have any ideas about what to do next?

    :)
