Why Is My Monitor Flickering Window 10 & Window 11

Screen blinking in Windows 10 / Windows 11 is often caused by a display driver or incompatible operating system. To determine if the display driver or application is causing a problem, check to see if the Task Manager is blinking. Then, based on that information, you will need to update, rewind, or remove your display driver or update or uninstall the app.

Check to see if the Task Manager is busy

Press Ctrl + Alt + Delete to open Task Manager. If you do not see Task Manager after Pressing Ctrl + Alt + Delete, press Ctrl + Shift + Esc to open Task Manager

  • If the Task Manager blinks and everything else on the screen, the display driver is likely to cause a problem. In this case, see the Adjust your driver display section.
  •   If Task Manager does not blink while the whole screen blinks, an incompatible application is likely to cause a problem. In this case, see the Update or uninstall the incompatible application section.

Update or Uninstall The Incompatible App

Update the application

  • If the app is from the Microsoft Store, check for updates to apps from the Microsoft Store.
  •  If the app does not appear in the Microsoft store, check the manufacturer’s site for updates.

Uninstall the app

Some applications may not be compatible with Windows 11 and may cause a flashing or moving screen. Try uninstalling the app, here’s how:
