The screen starts flickering on a dark background when the laptop is on battery.

Plugged in, it the effect is reduced pretty much, but if you look closely you will see it.

How can I fix it?

    What is your laptop/desktop or AIO model number? As Screen\Flickering in Windows 11 or 10 is usually caused by a display driver issue or incompatible app. To determine whether a display driver or app is causing the problem, check to see if Task Manager flickers. Then, based on that information, you'll need to update, rollback, or uninstall your display driver or update or uninstall the app. see “Troubleshoot screen flickering in Windows”

    And yes, it flickers also in task manager.

    Hello!!

    @didi123

    Try windows x go to device manager expand display adapter right click on display driver - uninstall Restart the computer 

    It should work fine.. 

    If it is still not working Uninstall the display adapter from device manager Dont restart the computer. Go to support.acer.com chose your country type snid or chose your model go to drivers Install the display driver 


    It should work fine..

    It didn't work. Also keep in mind that this problem occurs only when I am on battery, not when the laptop is plugged.

    My guess is that it is a conflict between some display power saving of some sort, but I don't know where.

    I disabled the option from Intel Command Center
