Screen flickers / goes black when trying to drag or resize a window
Posted on 2016-08-23
Acer laptop running Windows 8.1 64bit.
When I try to move a window while clicking on the top and dragging the screen flickers and goes black, if I release the button immediately it goes back to the desktop, if I try for more than a couple of seconds it seems to crash explorer (no error message) and puts me back to the login screen.
If I try to resize a window by clicking on the handles and dragging the screen goes black and flickers as soon as I click on the edge of the window.
I have checked for video card driver updates and installed them from the Acer website.
I have tried older video drivers
The problem occurs in safe mode
I am currently running a system file check.
Any suggestions greatly appreciated.
