    Update GPU drivers and tell me if that fixes it.
  2. Does it doe this if you move the screen backwards and forwards? Is it old? Could be the cable ribbon to the screen.

    It is not old. This is it http://www.bestbuy.com/site/asus-vivobook-13-3-touch-screen-laptop-intel-core-i5-6gb-memory-500gb-hard-drive-silver/2990013.p?id=1219085427753&skuId=2990013&st=asus%20vivobook&cp=1&lp=1
  4. Is it on warranty then? Return it.

    I would try to return it to Best Buy or send it to asus and see what they can do. Good luck with that, though. I haven't heard great stories from ASUS support.
  6. Check your GPU drivers by searching "Device Manager" in the windows search bar. Then check for yellow markers in the list under display...
