How to Fix Windows 10 Flashing Screen

Today we are going to show you how to fix the flashing screen issue when you just upgraded to Windows 10. This is a really annoying thing and we want to share the information on how to fix this problem.

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

Press CTRL+ALT+DELETE and at the bottom right corner of the screen you will see a power button. You have to click on it, but before doing this make sure that you hold down a SHIFT key.

Now it’s going to bring another menu.

You have to go to Troubleshoot, and then to Startup Settings and you will see a list of options. We are interested to reboot in Safe Mode.

Once you’ve booted in Safe Mode, you should press Windows key + R to open up a run tab here.

Type msconfig.exe and once this is open you have to go to the Services and click on the Service line to alphabetize everything. Now you should find Windows Error Reporting Service and untick it.

The same situation with Problem Reports and Solutions Control Panel Support, that’s another one to untick. Make sure that you did it properly and hit OK.

    The outdated or corrupted display driver also could be the reason, which resulted in the bad communication between the hardware and computer.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.

    This solved my problem with the flickering on a Asus Q534UX laptop, which only seemed to be experiencing the flickering when a Microsoft program, like Outlook or Word (2016), were opened. I did try updating the GeForce GTX driver first – but that did not fix the issue.
