Why does my screen flicker during startup after hours of not using the unit?

HP Recommended
HP Pavillion Laptop 14
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I just bought this unit. But recently, I experienced an unusual flickering screen whenever I turn on my laptop after hours of inactivity. I already updated my system to the latest improvements and I also do not have a lot of apps yet. Good that I just need to restart my laptop so that the flickering screen goes away. I think there's not much of a problem but it bothers me to see this on my newly bought laptop. What should I do in this case? I hope you can help me.

I reviewed your post and I understand that the screen flickers when you wake up the computer after inactivity.

 

Don’t worry, I assure you I will try my best to get this sorted.

 

I recommend you update the BIOS and the graphics driver from the below link and check if it helps.

Thank you for the response. I tried the method. I updated my BIOS and after doing so, I did experience a flickering screen in my unit after hours of inactivity. However, when I plugged in my charger, shut down the unit and opened it after a few hours, the flickering screen went back. As usual, it only goes away if I restart it. Maybe, I'll try updating the graphics driver as well.
