    Waking from sleep, screen continuously flickers and refreshes


    Hello, I have an Asus Zenbook UX303LA, and I upgraded to 10 yesterday. When I put the comp to sleep and wake it up by opening the lid, the screen begins blacking out and refreshing. Everything else seems fine--I can open apps, navigate the desktop and so on, in between the black outs. The problem has so far been solved by restarting each time. I can't find any information on this issue, so I don't know what might be causing it (driver incompatibility with 10 seems a likely culprit--this was not at all an issue with 8.1, which is what I was running prior to the upgrade).

    Thank you for your help!

    Actually, I found my own solution. Simply going into the device manager, display device, and using Windows to search the web for a driver update (an option in the properties menu of the display device), I downloaded an updated driver, and the problem went away.

    My Asus UX303LB had problems at sleep and wake up. After trying different things the problem was solved when I disabled the NVIIA Geforce 940M driver. There was no update available for this drive and I fine with it now as I don't play games. The display is working fine without it.

    I experienced something sort of similar--after waking the computer up from sleep, the screen would flicker, but not the black and white flashing. It looks like the lower 3/4 of the screen have dancing black lines across it and the screen image is distorted. It seems like the screen itself is damaged, but it only happens after waking up from sleep. It also doesn't happen consistently--only occasionally. I would think that if the screen was dying, it would happen at other times too. I don't play games, I do sometimes watch movies, but most of the time I use it for online research and word processor. All my drivers are up to date, and I've run DISM, which came back with no issues detected. Can anyone suggest to me something I might be doing to cause this, or a method of fixing this? Thanks!
