    So recently my computer has been experiencing some issues. Black horizontal lines have been showing up all over the screen. At first they were intermittent but now they seems to be happening more often and it's getting worse. Could this be an issue with the graphics card or the graphics driver? The lines do not show up in a screenshot if that says anything. I have a Lenovo yoga 11s with windows 10 and have only had it for 2 years. I would really like not to have to replace my computer because of this.

    I see this issue about once a week. I would say about 95% of the time its a problem with the LCD or the cable to the LCD.
    One quick thing you can check is if you move the screen around and the lines change its probably the cable.

    Any other monitors, devices sucking power from the PC or USB card need reseating? Sometimes flickering is often due to an improperly calibrated refresh rate check it out.
