    HP laptop screen flicker

    by gmzimmer429 ·

    My HP Pavilion Model 15-cs3063cl screen started to flicker recently. I disconnected the power and held down the start button for 60 seconds before restarting which worked temporarily, but the problem recurred the next time I booted up. What would you suggest? (FYI – previous to this, the PC would “buzz” when I start it up and then randomly. I’ve cleaned the cooling vents and make sure BIOS was up to date and still have the noise. I recently updated to Windows 11 – This had no effect.)

      Could be the CPU fan that is making the noise. How old is the computer and is it still in warranty?

      It’s easy to neglect Windows software updates, especially when you know how long they’ll take. Those in the habit of putting their computer to sleep rather than shutting it down are more susceptible to the effects of outdated drivers.

      Malfunctioning internal devices can lead to poor display resolutions, glitchy internet connectivity and of course, a flickering laptop screen. Both visual aspects and functionality in PC components suffer the consequences of outdated drivers when patches, updates, and bug fixes go by the wayside.

      Wondering if your PC is due for an update? Check the status of your Windows 10 operating system in five easy steps.

      Step 1. Press the Windows taskbar button and press the gear symbol to access your PC settings.

      Step 2: Select “Update & Security” tab.

      Step 3. If your PC has scanned for available updates recently, you may see a list of pending installs alongside the names of programs, extensions, or drivers that need immediate updating.

      Step 4. If your PC has not completed an automated scan, you will be able to select “Check for updates.” This will sweep your hardware and operating system for any necessary updates.

      Step 5. Click “Install updates” and let your PC do the rest. Pro tip: Be sure to have your PC plugged in while updating – running out of battery in the middle of an update process could corrupt or damage your operating system.
