I have a Lenovo laptop with NVIDIA GEFORCE and I've updated my video and display drivers like other similar threads have suggested. However, the pink and purple flashing and display issues are still persisting.
Some other threads were suggesting fixing a ribbon in the hardware of the laptop?
Can anyone elaborate on how I would do that or other possible solutions. Also the issue does not get worse or get fixed when the laptop screen is moved around. Thanks
Most times this kind if error is damaged signal cable. So as suggested check other display. Should work normally. damaged cable depending on how it was damaged, can behave differently when moved. This is not a good way to check, it is just a clue.

It's a Lenovo Edge 15, as far as connecting an external monitor goes, I don't have an HDMI cable so I can't test how it looks on a different monitor. I've had this laptop for about three years now, but it's been used pretty much everyday for that time.
Is it necessary to test it with an external monitor before fixing the internal ribbon? Or can I try fixing the ribbon to see if that resolves the issue?
Dogwithavlog.... Did you ever fix this issue? Did you replace the cable? I have a Lenovo Y50-70 touch. I have flashing screen issues as well as a purple tint with ghosting. Did you replace your cable yet and how difficult was it?
