I’ve just acquired a NC10 and everything is fine except for when I revert to battery power, when the screen image begins to judder and white lines start flickering across the screen. The problem is corrected by setting the the LCD brightness level to the maximum 8 in the Battery Manager, but anything below that level results in the same problem. I need the maximum battery life so this is a major issue.
Any advice would be gratefully received.February 22, 2009 at 9:35 pm #184658AlfiharParticipant
It sounds like a hardware fault.
If it’s new maybe ask for an exchange where you bought it from, otherwise contact Samsung to get it repaired.February 23, 2009 at 1:11 pm #184668SIXSEVENMember
Thank you for response Alfihar. I bought it via Amazon UK, so should be no problem to replace.May 14, 2009 at 12:29 pm #184680valdaMember
Hi first time poster here. I hvae exactly the same problem with my NC10. At first it was ok but now I’ve had it for a couple of weeks, the juddering has started. Strangely enough I got mine from Amazon. Hopefully the replacement will be betterMay 15, 2009 at 12:15 pm #184657ChirimollaMember
I’ve had mine for about 6 months and have recently started to get the occasional screen flicker. It doesn’t seem to be connected with running on battery power though. Occasional BSOD too. I’m considering reformatting.September 22, 2009 at 4:44 pm #184671
Mine has started doing this in the past week. 🙁 Oddly its only on mains power when it does it, I am guessing its a hardware fault which has developed.
Seems intermittent, the whole screen judders on and off. Mine is only about 6 months old. 🙁September 23, 2009 at 9:12 am #184661gerttomMember
I have the same problem. My laptop is from december 2008 and has only the problem when Power is connected! on battery I do not have a problem.September 23, 2009 at 9:44 am #184672
I had mine on for a few hours last night, and the screen “juddered” vertically about 5 or 6 times in total, grrrr. Way too intermitant to report. Going to see if it gets worse as I still have 6 months warranty on the machine. How bloody annoying.
Seems from the forums that quite a few machines are going this way.. 🙁
Anyone had theirs repaired with this fault? I tried moving the machine around, messing with the lid hinge and pressing the casing, couldn’t get it to do it under command, just randomly.September 24, 2009 at 5:10 pm #184673
Hmm been reading lots of things about flickering screens and looked at a couple of youtube videos but mine does not seem to be the same fault, my whole screen judders vertically. Hmmmm..
To be honest just wish it would do it 100% of the time now so that I can send it for repair knowing its going to be fixed, its done it only once so far today. GrrrrrrSeptember 25, 2009 at 7:35 am #184674
Another update, this gets more weird, seems it only does it when its plugged in and charging, although it seems to be getting LESS intermittent rather than worse on my machine now. Bloody annoying.September 25, 2009 at 7:41 am #184683jasoninertiaMember
I would suggest a backup of all your data , then a reformat and reinstall form the samsung recovery partition , it may be a hardware fault , but just to be sure I would reinstall everything first . I have had issues with my screen turning white in the first week of buying mine , thankfully they have now gone away after a full reinstall of all the drivers and a few updatesSeptember 25, 2009 at 10:27 am #184675
Yeh, gonna try this at some point although might just wait for my Windows 7 retail package to come and do a full re-install then.

I am having the same problem with my 10 months old NC10. 🙁
It seems to me a problem with the driver and / or Samsung display manager. I came up with a trick accidentally and seems to solve the problem for the moment.
1) Create a new DOS .bat file say
echo graphic debug
2) Add a link to the start menu so you may run it if the problem starts
3) The important part. Open the properties of the shortcut.
a) Set Compatibility to Win 98
b) In display settings tick Run in 256 colours
c) Tick full screen in display options
Apply and exit.
See if it works for the others.September 25, 2009 at 8:55 pm #184676
Hmmm not sure I wanna run in 256 colours…. Its not done it today at all, which again leads me to believe its only when its charging on mine which makes it more and more annoying and hard to diagnose. Maybe my problem is unique. 🙁September 26, 2009 at 4:55 am #184662miserlyMember
i’ve had this problem since December. been meaning to send it in for warranty repairs but can’t bear to part with the machine for weeks…
