    I’ve encountered massive screen flickers especially after watching full screen streamed videos. The flickering stopped after shutting down the tablet and letting it rest for a few minutes. I’ve done the copper shim and added thermal pastes to where the processor sits to improve thermals but it’s still flickering as before

    The flicker is very similar to here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8P-RRcvbVjI but in my case it’s a lot severe. Anyone else experienced this and solved it without needing to get back to Chuwi?

    Have you updated the Intel display driver? I know someone before had issues with flicker and we all thought it was a hardware issue, turned up to be driver related.

    I have the exact same Problem for about 6 months now. Surbook is about 2 years old now

    solution for me was to disable intel virtualization technology in BIOS. its working without flickering currently. If I wont report back here, then the issue is fixed

    I tried disable intel virtualization technology .. didn’t work… Chuwi Support basically says they have no parts to repair the Surbook so there’s nothing they can do.

    It seems that it’s related to heat issues though, the problem only surfaces when the Surbook heats up
