What to do When Your Laptop Screen is Glitching

Laptops play a vital role in remote working, travelling, and in the modern era, double as TVs, gaming consoles and more. We use them for entertainment, work and communication. Because we rely on technology so much, it can be even more frustrating when things go wrong. A glitching laptop screen can cause a lot of problems and frustration, and it can be difficult to figure out what to do to fix it. In this guide, we will expertly discuss what you should do when your laptop screen is glitching.


Restart your laptop

The age-old solution of turning it off and turning it back on really does work… sometimes. If your laptop screen is glitching, try restarting your laptop. Restarting your laptop can help clear any temporary glitches and you may just find it fixes the problem.

Update Your Graphics Card Driver

Your graphics card driver controls how your laptop displays images on the screen. If the driver is outdated or corrupt, it can cause a glitchy screen.

Check For Malware
