Dell Inspiron 5555 Screen Flicker

I'm at wits end with this laptop. The screen flickers very often, mostly when any kind of activity is going on. Playing games just cannot happen, and as soon as I click on anything or try to play a YouTube video it flickers. I've updated drivers from Radeon directly and from Dell to no avail. I fear the graphics card is about to bite the dust. I'm really hoping that's not the issue, but there's really nothing else I can think of doing. If anyone has any suggestions they would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Dell Inspiron 5555 Screen Flicker

Hello,

I am having issues where the screen starts flickering when I have the power cord in and select the start menu and etc. I have updated the BIOS and replace the motherboard, also install the drivers for the graphic card. Is there any solutions to the problem?

Re: Dell Inspiron 5555 Screen Flicker

I see that the motherboard was replaced which also means the CPU and BIOS which, I believe, are non removable on the laptop motherboard. That would lead me to believe that it is not a hardware issue. And the drivers are the latest from Dell? You say that when you plug in the ac adapter the flickering starts. Does the flickering go away if you are running strictly on battery and no adapter?

Hi, the issue seems to be something related to an energy saver option. Just go to AMD Catalyst/Energy/PowerPlay and deactivate Vari-Bright. Greets!
