    Other than the lines flashing up for a second or so, what problems does this cause?

    hi jack. It doesn't cause any problems it is just new. I dont know if the problems with facebook videos is related

    >>> it is just new.>>>

    A new laptop? Or an old laptop with new-to-you behavior? If you have both an integrated GPU and a discrete GPU, a momentary screen distortion might happen if an app or site switches from using the integrated GPU to the disrete GPU for better FPS & smoother videos.

    (1) All facebook videos or just a few?
    (2) How about youtube videos?
