Why Does My Laptop Screen Flicker?

Why does my laptop screen flicker?

This is getting really annoying, and even causing me eye strain.

The computer might not be going in to hibernator energy saving modes correctly.

How would I fix that? Control-alt-delete might be a solution for that.

That’s Microsoft’s default solution for everything.

If it is a software problem, you might want to uninstall any apps you’ve got that are taking up resources to the point it can’t present a decent image.

It is like trying to run a video game and other graphics intensive applications.

It isn’t like I’m gaming a lot.

The video card could be going out.

That’s especially true if you are over-clocking it or if it is getting overheated.

It isn’t like I’m trying to run “The Last of Us” on a cheap PC without a video card.

The screen itself might be burning out.

I didn’t even know that could happen.

If it is cracked, it could interfere with the image.

I would notice a cracked screen.

Flipped bits could cause something that looks like flickering.

The only thing flipping out is me worrying if I need a new laptop.

Or you might have messed up the refresh rate,and the flickering is because it can’t keep up with the refresh rate.

That at least is easy to fix without refreshing the whole computer.

I wonder if that is like replacing the gas cap.

Never heard of it.

You keep the gas cap and replace the rest of the car.

What’s another solution? Take the computer to the repair shop and let them see if there is a burned out resistor or component on the video card that needs to be fixed.
