Screen Flicker issue with Intel HD Graphics 3000

Hello, I am having a screen flickering issue for some time now and I have narrowed down the issue to my graphics cards and settings.

I have an Asus x73s Laptop with both Intel HD* Graphics 3000 and an Nvidia 610m GPU.

The screen flickering I experience is when I am on my windows 7 desktop. It doesnt matter if I have any programs open or none at all my screen usually flickers. Sometimes it can go hours without doing this. I have no external display available to connect it to through HDMI to check if it happens on an external display.

I have sent my laptop in for repair under warrenty for this before and they said it was not an issue with my screen after a comprehensive hardware test and is a graphics or driver issue. But because the repair depot also sucks balls their solution was to backup my files, wipe and restore my laptop... That fixed it for a few months but the flickering is back.

I have gone through my Nvidia Control Panel and made sure my Nvidia 610m is set to be the priority GPU my laptop uses and have turned off the power saveing settings on the Intel Graphics control panel as i almost always have my laptop plugged in anyways.

The strangest thing I have only just noticed today is there is no screen flicker when playing games or when a game is alt+tabbed in the background.

ex/

Currently as I am writing this post I have launched Company Of Heros via Steam and then Alt + Tabbed back to my desktop. When I tab back and exit the game my screen will start flickering again.


This is super strange and super annoying. Im under warrenty until August 18th 2015 and when I told them it was happening again all they will do is charge me another 150$ to backup, wipe and restore my laptop...


If anyone has any idea what might be going on let me know any additional information you would need from me. I have also run fresh scans prior to posting this to make sure I am virus and malware free.

Hi would be nice to see if it happens on an external monitor. can you bring your laptop to a friends or relatives to test it out? sounds to me it could be the cable from the motherboard to the screen.

See if you can do this https://forums.geforce.com/default/t...ndows-desktop/

Try with latest GPU-Z first. There are previous versions in download page if you need.

Idea is to see if you will get flickers when GPU is 100% (without a game running).

I believe I may have just fixed this...

Forced all the Intel settings to maximum proformance and maximum quality, prioritized my Nvidia GPU in the Nvidia control panel and then uninstalled the intel HD graphics 3000 drivers and uninstalled the intel graphics itself. computer restarted at the lowest resolution, re installed intel drivers, restarted again and so far has not had any issues with screen flickering

Which GPU are you running on at the moment? Change to Nvidia if possible.
