Re: HP G72 Notebook display Flickers



Does your notebook flickers only when using skype, or is it throughout the use of the notebook?  If it is throughout the notebook, try booting into the BIOS by pressing F10 during startup to see if it flickers there.  If it flickers in BIOS, then it seems that your LCD display may be failing.  If not, then your graphics card may need to be updated.


About the overheating message, boot into BIOS and reset to defaults by pressing F9 and select yes.  Then press F10 to exit.  Once your finish, visit the with your product # to see if their are any BIOS and graphics card update for your product.

Re: HP G72 Notebook display Flickers

Check if you increase your Refresh rate in the display settings. Also is this issue related only to Skype video calls?

You might want to check this document:


Pertaining to the unit overheating, I will suggest you to update the latest BIOS for your notebook and also clean the FAN vents.


Most of the overheating issues are related to clogged FAN vents which might be causing the unit to shutdown.
