If the problem is physical panel, little or nothing can be done to change what happens beyond the component change. But sometimes, some modifications using software are enough to solve the problem of flickering on the screens of computers that use Microsoft's operating system. And luckily, it's not especially complicated to get this. By the way, the first thing you have to try is to change the installed driver, something you get by knowing the graphics card model in the Device Manager and accessing the manufacturer's website.

Modify the frequency of the screen or monitor

To get these you have to access the Screen Configuration, something that is achieved by pressing the right mouse button in a free place on the desktop and, in the menu that seems, choosing the option that has that name. In the window that looks like it, scroll to the bottom and look for a link called Advanced Display Settings. Select the component to modify in the first drop-down list -if you have more than one installed- and then click on Show adapter properties.

A new window appears where you can see the properties of the monitor. In the first tab you will see a drop-down list where you can modify the refresh rate you are using (on some older screens this is not possible). The ideal is to put the larger number, such as 80 Hz if available.

Check the applications you're using

To know if it's an application that gives you problems so that the screen of your laptop with Windows 10 blinks. You can know this in a simple way by performing the following steps:

● Opens the task manager by pressing the combined keys Ctrl + Shift + Esc

● If only the new window does this, the problem is with the controller. Otherwise, there's an application that gives you problems

Now you have to check if you have installed something that, now, makes you have the problems we talked about. Ideally, you should check to see if this is corrected by uninstalling any recently installed software. But don't forget to check if you have Norton's antivirus, Apple's iCloud application or IDT Audio, as these have already been reported to offer bugs with the screens in Windows 10. But, the truth is that it will have to be checked everything.
