    Unfortunately, it seems like I too have the screen flickering problem described here:
    http://forum.notebookreview.com/threads/screen-flickering-problem-with-clevo-p950hp6.826896/

    and by others. Unfortunately I am out of the warranty period, and I live in Canada so sending my NP8950 to Sager will be very expensive. Do you guys know how easy the problem is to fix? Can I get it fixed by local shops?

    The screen starts flickering semi-randomly, and moving the angle of the screen pretty reliably causes flickering. Also, turning the brightness above 30% causes constant flickering, which makes me think that the problem is a bad motherboard connection.

    I really need this laptop for work/school so I'm in a rut. My reseller is also of absolutely no help. Seriously, never buy from ReflexNotebook, they will scam and ignore you.

    Again, I'm desperate for a solution. Any help is appreciated.

    The first step is to re-seat both sides of the display cable.

    I'm assuming you mean this cable?

    There is the motherboard side and the LCD side is behind the panel.

    Has anyone determined a solid resolution on the P950HR screen flicker? Mine only seems to happen occasionally, will come in spurts (happening 3-5 times over a few days) and then goes week(s) without occurring. EVERY time, when the flicker happens, it's always when the laptop is cold. The flicker happens for around 30 seconds or so and then will not flicker again until the laptop is turned off and goes cold again.

    Would love to hear from anyone with a solid "fix". Thanks in advance!

    Usually that's cable creep, it would be worth reseating the cables.

    It does sound very minor in terms of coming loose but worth looking at as usually it would get worse over time.

    If not replacing the cable did it for me: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/New...ble-P950HP-LCD-EDP-30P-CABLE/32850424240.html

    Well I have a new problem now with my P950HP6. The exact same noise the fan is making in this video:


    Ended up ordering a fan from: https://rjtech.com/shop/index.php?dispatch=products.view&product_id=30616
    to replace it... ugh, I'm starting to question the build quality of Clevos after the issue with the flickering screen and now this.
