I have an ASUS E410MA laptop (with 14" screen) with the following components (courtesy of Speccy)…

The Inland m.2 SSD card and the SDXC card, I installed myself. The SanDisk SSD came with the machine, with Windows 10 preinstalled.
The screen flickering and blinking is an issue I had never encountered with my desktop or my 2 previous laptops. Is there a way to fix this, given the CPU I have?
One other thing: Windows had no trouble detecting Wi-Fi signals upon initial installation and activation. Why did my Manjaro setup fail to detect Wi-Fi, thereby forcing me to use a USB-to-Ethernet adapter? Wi-Fi was instantly recognizable in the Manjaro Live environment (before installation) in my other 2 laptops.
