Windows 10 Anniversary Flicker Fix
Can anyone post graphics driver info?
Device Manager > Display Adapters > Drivers
For both GPUs if possible...
Interesting - the Intel drivers are a bit older - 3-4 releases since then. Might explain the issue.
Following up with some people to figure it out.
I am having a flickering problem on an MSI GE70 2PE Apache Pro laptop with an NVIDIA GTX 860M at driver version 126.96.36.19954, an Intel HD Graphics 4600 at Driver version 188.8.131.5244 and an Asustek MB169B+ using DisplayLink at 8.0.478.0 - the problem goes away if I disconnect the DisplayLink (USB) screen. After updating the driver to 8.0.629.0 I am still having the problem - I have to disconnect the Asustek MB169B+ to stop f.lux continuously cycling from day to night and back.
I am having this same exact problem. It only occurs when chrome is fullscreen. I tried uninstalling Win10 updates but couldn't fix the problem. It's also not exclusive to flux - my asus eye care switcher is doing the same thing. It has to be something Chrome is doing, but I can't figure out how to fix it.
I am getting the same flicking as GrahamB with the DisplayLink connected as well. If i disconnect the usb Display link then there isn't a problem.
Acer G9-791laptop with an NVIDIA GTX 980M at driver version 10.18.13.5900, an Intel HD Graphics 530 at Driver version 10.18.15.4279 second monitor with DisplayLink at 8.0.480.0
If you're having trouble with DisplayLink please see this thread:
The latest fix works - no more problems with DisplayLink.
Can anyone try to enable Nvidia as default video card from BIOS and check back if flicker is fixed by this trick ? Thank you.
Hello guys, i come back with BIG News! I managed to fix this issue on my Lenovo y700.
You have to go to Lenovo support page, select your device model and download the latest Intel HD VGA drivers. I had installed a version from 2015 and the latest was from 2016. Unpack the archive but do not run setup because it will fail.
Now go to Device Manager, right-click on Intel HD and choose to upgrade drivers.
Click: Browse My computer - Next - Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer - Click on Have Disk -> Browse and open the path where the drivers were unpacked (C:\drivers\Intel VGA Driver\Graphics) and select igdlh64.inf fro x64 OS or igdlh32.inf for X86 OS.
After installation is completed reboot your computer once or twice.
After the first reboot i had a problem with my desktop files missing but it might be due to other things i did to my system. If you encounter this issues just go to C:\windows\system32\config\systemprofile\ and create here a new folder called Desktop. Reboot and everything should be ok.
PS: flux works great after this.
