Hi All,

Good Day.

My monitor always flickers every few minutes and I have try to switch monitor and still same, and with the graphic driver up to date.

Guess is software but it's important and I can't uninstall and install back, any good way to trace or figure out?

I am using dell desktop with windows 10, appreciate if anyone with this knowledge can assist me with.

Thanks & Regards

does it also happen if you attach it to another computer ?

if so, then the monitor is most probably faulty

I agree with the above to try another monitor.

Also, remove the video cable (both ends) and reconnect it . It could be loose.

BIOS, Chipset and Video are all tied together. Try updating these drivers.

Also there could be a loose connection inside the machine.

some reports show the issue may be caused by two Windows services: Windows Error Reporting and Problem Reports and Solutions. try disabling the two services using MSCONFIG in Safe Mode.

you may check this YouTube clip for details.

Check your cables. A display will often flicker if you are using bad cables. If you are still using a CRT display, then make sure that the refresh rate setting of your video driver is set at the maximum your display can support at that resolution. If it is an LCD display, the refresh rate setting has no function, but you should still make sure you are using the display's native resolution.

if another monitor still flickers- it can be a pc problem - so, if the one you tested with was ok on another pc, it points imo to this pc, hard or soft
when did it start happenening?  if recent, a system restore to such date can help you out
