Display backlight intensity flickers on battery power and lower brightness.

HP Spectre x360 15 (2017)
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have noticed that when my new HP Spectre x360 15 (2017) laptop PC is operating on battery power and the screen brightness is turned down, the screen brightness changes intensity (flickers) a little for a few seconds after opening up a program window.  It only experiences this condition upon opening the first program window.  Opening subsequent program windows after the first does not exibit this condition.  On AC power, I do not observe this condition at all.  On battery power, I observe this condition for several seconds at lower screen brightness intensity levels.  Is this normal?

Hi,


Hope you've updated graphics driver available from your HP support page?

You can disable adaptive brightness and check: https://windows.gadgethacks.com/how-to/disable-adaptive-brightness-windows-10-for-maximum-screen-bri...

HP Support Assistanct is not reporting any new display updates and adaptive brightness is turned off.  It does seem like a driver issue though.

Download, save latest version from your HP support page

Uninstall all graphic drivers from display adapter section in Device Manager

Then install the latest one
