Flickering screens on Lenovo laptops have been reported since Feb 2013. I have been looking for a solution for 6 months now and tried everything I did find to no avail. It's ruddy annoying and Lenovo don't seem to have an answer, sometimes blaming it other software / windows 10. Mine is always worse just after boot-up / sleep. But never flickers whilst on the initial login screen ... it settles down after about 30 minutes (ish). So is it hardware or software issues? I wish someone could tell me. I certainly will not buy another Lenovo if this is typical.

Here's the official solution from the Lenovo website. https://support.lenovo.com/gt/en/solutions/ht104147 I had the same issue and got it fixed with those instructions. Maybe you need to do step 3.

1. Update BIOS to V3.03 9ECN43WW (or later version).

2. Update the Intel VGA driver.
3. Change the Panel Self-Refresh setting to “disable” in the Intel HD Graphics control panel. (some versions do not have Panel Self-Refresh setting, skip this step.)
