Hey @morganbrynn

 

Here on the HP Support Forums, you have access to many community members with solutions and suggestions to help. I understand that you are having an issue with black lines and the display flickering. 

 

Please make sure that the AC adapter cable is not plugged into a power strip, surge protector, or secondary power source. It should be directly into a wall outlet. 

 

Please look at the Image on the screen flickers and lines link and let me know if that is what you are seeing. 

 

Have you tried in Safe Mode to see if the screen flickers?

Have you tried to uninstall the graphics driver in the device manager?

Have you tried to update the graphics driver in the device manager?

Have you done all of your Windows Updates?

Have you tried doing updates using the HP Support Assistant?

 

Here is a link to the HP Support Assistant if you need it. Just download and run the application and it will help with the software and drivers on your system that need updating.

 

If you feel this post has helped you, could help others joining in and looking for a solution or you just want to say cheers, please click the Accept as Solution button and/or the Thumbs Up

 

Let me know how this goes. If you require further assistance, I would be more than happy to continue to help! 

 

Have a great day!
