    Is this on the laptop screen or a display attached to the dock? Refresh rate, bad cable, failing display can be some of many causes.

    I don't think its the laptop screen because it works perfectly fine.

    1) Update the specs in the "My Computer" section:

    System Specs - Fill in at Ten Forums | Windows 10 Tutorials
    In the left corner below in your post you find 'My System Specs'.
    After clicking it you can find a link a little below that says 'Update your System Spec', click on this link to get to the page where you can fill in your system specs.
    System Info - See Your System Specs - Windows 7 Help Forums
    Include PSU. cooler, case, peripherals and anything attached to the computer by wired or wireless (mouse, keyboard, headset, printer, xbox, USB wireless network card, etc.)

    2) Remove the notebook from the docking station
    Evaluate whether there is or is not screen flickering when not connected to the docking station

    3) If there is screen flicking when not connected to the docking station then place the computer in safe mode.
    Boot into Safe Mode on Windows 10 | Windows 10 Tutorials
    Evaluate whether there is or is not screen flickering when in safe mode

    4) Open the website for the computer manufacturer > support > enter the product or serial number or model > select the operating system > view drivers > post a URL or hyperlink into the thread

    5) Run the BETA log collector and post a zip into this thread:

    That is why it was asked for troubleshooting purposes. We have no way of knowing what is the problem, if you just state that your screen is flickering and mention using a dock.

    Your video card is missing/corrupt. Update/reinstall them.

    It is a laptop with a docking station. My guess is a faulty video cable from the docking station to the screen they are using or a bad output device.
