Hello FoXz, according to the graphics team the latest graphics driver included a fix related to flickering.
I would recommend checking if the version you have installed is the 3621. If it is not, you will be able to find it at the following URL
I would like to confirm you that this driver did not fix my issue related to flickering This is quite annoying because I removed the Intel HD driver and with the MS generic driver is not happening (I guess that the reason is it is not using the total hardware acceleration).
I have noticed that there is a new one (188.8.131.5252 - beta one), I will give a try as it also has flicker fixes.
Kepp you posted.
Finally I could not install the beta driver because do not apply to my graphics model.
I continued doing some troubleshooting and seems that if I set resolution one step lower, flickering does not happen (from 1280x800 to 1280x768).
Maybe a refresh issue on that native (1280x800) resolution?
oh...he came again
I think the reason is sleep mode.
It appear when tablet sleep over about 2-3hours.
c6 or c7 may cause flickering.
we need new driver Mr. INTEL.
I have tested about DVMT memory.
did you change the dvmt size on bios?
128mb is not enough I think.
so I have set 256mb
and now flickering has gone away surely. gracias
I have this same problem with my Asus X200MA touchscreen laptop, uses the Intel Celeron N2815 CPU and intel HD graphics, it's very annoying because sometimes it doesn't just flickers, it stays black until you interact with it again, then the image reappears.
I've had this happen on two different laptops of the same model (but different colors), so I think it must be a software issue.
I'm having the same issue with my Sony Vaio VPCEG16FM latop. I ended up having to reload the computer with a fresh install and updated the graphics driver to the latest version and it keeps flickering like a strobe light, but the image is still visible. So kind of like the beginning of the original posters video before it blacks out.. I thought it was a connectivity issue at first, so I took it apart to make sure the cable was secure in the back of the screen, but it still did the same thing. After that, I ended up uninstalling the driver to the default "Standard VGA graphics" driver provided by Microsoft and the issue hasn't happened since. The following was taken from the DxDiag:

Sorry for the length of all that, I figured the more info I give, the easier it might be to figure out the issue. Please, I am unable to use the laptop at the moment with the latest driver. Without it, it works fine, so I've eliminated the hardware. If any further information is needed, I'll do my best to provide it.
