For the past few months I've been getting a flickering, horizontal effect across my laptop's monitor under certain circumstances. The effect comes along with purple lines striking horizontally across the lower half of the screen. I can clear this by either restarting the laptop or simply waiting, EventView isn't showing any display errors or driver crashes.

I was not able to get the effect to appear when running FurMark extreme burn-in or under any other high stress environments, it does not show up in screenshots and so far has only happened under two specific conditions: I boot the laptop after a longer period of it being powered off, or I alt-tab inside of fullscreen specifically Fallout 4 while running on battery, which has a chance of causing the effect to appear. It so far hasn't shown up when alt-tabbing other games and I haven't seen any rendering artifacts in games or stress-testing programs.

I need to try repeating the effect again to see if I can troubleshoot with an external monitor.
I did also manage to find a video on Youtube that shows an identical situation to mine on the same machine, and many reports of the same thing in the comments, but no solutions.

Typically in games the temperature doesn't reach above 75C on the GPU, when running off the battery, the lowered clocks keep it around 60, the issue occurs almost entirely when the laptop isn't plugged in.
