Hi All,

Who got their brand new Blade 15 Advanced today and have crazy screen flickering issues? I had to connect a second display via HDMI just so I could do anything. Didn't start until 3 or so minutes into the initial PC setup.

If I manually reduce the refresh rate to 60hz (down from 244hz) the screen stays on. If I try to change any settings to Intel GPU only or Nvidia GPU only it starts to flicker again even at 60hz. At that point I have to do a complete shutdown and restart to get the screen to work again.

I've done all the windows updates. ensured that the Nvidia Drivers are updated as well as the intel drivers.

I really have not clue what to do at this point. Had a FHD with 2080 Blade 15 before this one and had no issues like this.

Anyone else having this issue or know a fix? I'm currently wiping the laptop and reinstalling everything. Hope that it's just a botched Windows install or something.
