    Here is a gif I took of my laptop screen: http://i.imgur.com/7mndwlP.gifv

    This happens when I am watching a video in full screen (whether it be VLC, Netflix, YouTube - on Chrome/FF/Edge). I have sent my laptop in once already to get the screen replaced (for another reason, but there was already this problem before), but the issue still pertains.

    I have an Asus Zenbook Flip UX360U with Windows 10 x64, Core i5-6200U with Intel HD Graphics 520. All drivers are up to date as well. It's the model with a QHD+ screen.

    You need to copy the file directly into your reply by using the attach feature on the row of icons above where you type your reply. Take a screenshot or a picture and then save to the device and then load it into your next reply using the "attach" feature.

    Did you just recently purchase this computer?

    I bought it in February and it's happened occasionally since then. the problem comes and goes, but I do feel it happens mostly when my computer is on battery rather than charging.

    I would go to the manufacturer first and see if it's covered under your limited warranty.
