Hey, I have a problem with my Surface Pro 4. After some ours of work (only one note, VLC media player and firefox) my screen flickers a lot. It's so annoying. Can someone help me with it?
And no I don't have garantee anymore.
Can I overclocking the processor or anything else?

With best regards
Febru

I've exactly the same problem. The issue is to do with the Samsung screens Microsoft used. From what I understood they are more susceptible to heat damage from the unit, ie processing-intensive tasks. Mine started only when gaming and after like 30mins or more of use. Now I get the flicker in minutes after booting up even in a cold room. Ie the more you use it the worse the flicker will get.

Microsoft eventually dumped Samsung and started using another supplier which had a more robust screen.

The only fix I'm afraid is to replace the screen I'm afraid. I tried the updating driver several different ways, and it made no difference.

the question I wanted to ask folks here is it worth trying to have a "crack" at replacing the screen? doesn't look that easy and I've read online that it's easy to mess it up.

Alternative is to sell on ebay
