If your screen is constantly flashing and you can’t open anything, you have to do a few steps.

    The outdated or corrupted display driver also could be the reason, which resulted in the bad communication between the hardware and computer. There is another solution to flickering screen. Go to Device Manager to uninstall the display driver and reinstall again. Well, you could also use a third party tool like OSToto Driver Talent to do the troubleshoot.
