I have my laptop for 2 years now. Today I reinstalled windows and noticed that my screen went crazy. It flickers when I set it to 165 hz but if I switch to 60 hz it works fine. I also tried 2 older driver updates but nothing.

  1. Check for Latest Drivers: Make sure you have the latest graphics drivers from the manufacturer's website, not just Windows Update.
  2. Update BIOS/UEFI: Sometimes, updating your laptop's BIOS or UEFI firmware can resolve display issues.
  3. Change Display Settings: In your graphics control panel (NVIDIA Control Panel or AMD Radeon Settings), try adjusting settings like refresh rate, resolution, and power management options.
  4. Test with External Monitor: Connect your laptop to an external monitor and set it to 165Hz to see if the issue persists. This can help determine if the problem is with the laptop screen itself or the GPU.
  5. Check Power Settings: Ensure your laptop is in high performance mode and not power-saving mode, as power settings can sometimes affect display performance.
  6. Contact Support: If none of the above steps work, it might be time to contact the laptop manufacturer's support for further assistance. It could be a hardware issue that needs professional repair.

Hopefully, one of these solutions will help get your display back to normal!
