Dell Inspiron 15 7559 screen flickering when gaming and charging

Jump to solution

Hi,

I have a problem with my screen. My screen flickering only when gaming and plugged in. But when i plugged out the flickering stop. Also, when the power still plugged in but i don't play any game (just browsing, playing video, etc) there is no flickering at all. So flickering only occurs when gaming and charging.

I tried connect to other screen with hdmi, flickering only occurred at my laptop screen. The second screen is fine.

I tried update my bios, adjust power plan, update my nvidia, adjust screen frequency from 60 hz to 48 hz, but there is nothing happened. The problem is still there.

Can you help me with my problem?

Sorry for the grammar.

Regard.

I have the 7559-5012gry and I'm having the same problem. I noticed it goes away after the power inverter heats up. I bought a new charger and it flickers for a shorter time, but i bought a refurbished adapter. I'd buy a new adapter, you can find them on Amazon for $30. Dell sells them for $80

Hi Robert,

Thanks for your advice.

I did perform a systems diagnostics test and there was no problem.

I notice that the screen flickering only when i was gaming and the A/C cord was plugging and also using dedicated video card (GTX 960m).

When I change prefered graphic processor to Intel, even when the A/C cord was plugging, the screen was totally fine.

I tried uninstall  Nvidia driver then install it back with the newest version, the problem is still there.

what should i do next?
