Display flickering/ Pixel Distortion

OMEN 15
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Earlier this week, I got an update for Nvidia GPU drivers, Windows and since then I'm having an issue with my screen. I have attached screenshot for more info and the problem. Is it a software issue or hardware?

I do game a lot on my laptop and yes it overheats a lot. Warranty is also over (it's 1.5 years old)Screenshot (28).png

Display flickering/ Pixel Distortion

@Cherry07 Here's what you need to do, to identify the issue and resolve it accordingly:

  • If not done already, check if it works fine on the BIOS screen to identify if it's either a hardware or a software issue:
    • If it works fine on the BIOS (Accessed while tapping F10 during a restart) it's a software issue & I suggest creating a new user account to check if that works better, for starters)
    • However, if it doesn't work within the BIOS either, I'm afraid it's a hardware malfunction.

While you respond to that, I have a few more steps that should help: 

Perform a power reset (no data loss) using these steps: Click here, proceed to next step if this works

Attempt to run a test from the HP hardware diagnostic tool, using this link: Click here for details.

 

If the issue appears on the diagnostics, it could again, determine a hardware failure,

If they don't appear on bios & the hardware tests passed: please update the BIOS & Chip-set drivers from the HP website using this link: Click here

 

if the issue persists, reinstall windows using the recovery partition or the recovery media to fix the issue,
use this link for details on performing the recovery: Click here
