    Hello, my acer laptop screen started flickering on startup.
    That doesn't happen all the times I start my computer, but only sometimes and only for a short amount of time after I pressed the ON button. When I reach the screen before the login page (the one with a wallpaper) it has already finished.
    That is not a huge issue, however I would like to understand why it happens. All I did recently was to disable secure boot, trying a linux live distro and then I enabled secure boot again.
    I notice it usually happens when I open in a fast way the laptop and press the ON button. If I open it in a fast way, the screen is moving because the material its made of looks really bad (it is made of plastic, not a really solid one)

    This is the model: Acer aspire 3 A315-51-3510

    I bought it less than one year ago when my other Acer laptop screen failed (hope it's not the screen again)

    Thanks in advance

    Update: as pointed by @Vasudev the hinge could be broken. That is likely because I travel a lot by train and put the PC in the luggage. Even if it has its own box, bad materials could lead to a hinge broken
