Question Why does my laptop screen sometimes start flickering ?

Sep 15, 2019
You know I have been using asus laptop for a long time. Nowadays its monitor sometimes starts flickering at the time of turning on my laptop. When it starts flickering, I just shut it down. Then after a few hours I start my laptop again. And it is found that it runs smoothly like a brand new laptop. I went to a technician who has advised me to replace the display of my laptop. I have noticed that the task manager of my laptop doesn't flicker. I have asked the technician to check my screen cable. I asked him to examine whether the screen cable is loose or damaged. In reply he again emphasized that it would be better to replace the laptop screen though I'm still using the same laptop. The operating system of my laptop is windows 7 64 bit. Is there anyone who can guide me how I can get a better solution tofix the problem that I sometimes experience when I start my laptop…?
First check the temps when the flickering starts and make a note of how high they are, especially GPU temps.

Then try starting up the laptop in "Safe Mode". While you can't do most things in that mode, you can see if the flickering happens in there. If it doesn't, then it may well be the GPU that is the problem rather than the display. However if it happens in "Safe Mode" then it is likely the display. "Safe Mode" uses integrated graphics rather than any other GPU.

How to enter "Safe Mode" when booting the computer.

In Windows 8 and 10...

As your computer restarts, press F8 (possibly a few times) to enter "Safe Mode"

a. Press the "F4" key to Enable "Safe Mode".
(The computer will then start in "Safe Mode" with a minimal set of drivers and services.)

b. Press the "F5" key to Enable "Safe Mode" with Networking.
( Once "Safe Mode" with Networking starts, Windows is in Safe Mode, with additional network and services for accessing the Internet and other computers on your network.)

c. Press the "F6" key to Enable "Safe Mode" with Command Prompt.
(In "Safe Mode" with "Command Prompt" starts Windows in Safe Mode, with a Command Prompt window instead of the Windows interface. This option is mostly only used by IT professionals.)

Now sign in to the computer with your account name and password. (If you have one set.) When you are finished troubleshooting, you can exit "Safe Mode" restarting your computer.

In Windows 7/Vista/XP...

1. Immediately after turning on the computer, or restarting it (usually after you hear your computer beep), tap the F8 key, repeatedly, in 1 second intervals.

2. The computer will then display hardware information and run a memory test.

3. Next the "Advanced Boot Options" menu will appear.

4. In the "Advanced Boot Options" menu use the arrow keys to select "Safe Mode" or "Safe Mode with Networking" and press ENTER.
