After Windows 10 upgrade monitor blinks (flashing, flickering) (Intel HD Graphics)

  • Hello.
    Today, 28.09.2016, I upgrade Windows 10 Pro x64 to version 1607, OS build 14393.0 and got issue with Flux.

    When color temperature slider on "Day Light" (most right position) - everything is OK (but, flux doesn't takes any effect when slider in this position).

    But, if to switch slider left (in direction to "Halogen" and "Incandescent") - at list in one pixel - monitors begin blink (flashing, flickering).

    I have been using Flux about 1 year - on Windows 8.1 and on Windows 10, and, before today , I never had any problem.

    I use 3 monitors - 2 plugged in integrated Intel HD Graphics, 1 - at Display Link.
    At Display link Flux doesn't take effect - nor before, neither now.
    But both monitors at Intel HD Graphics start blinking after today's Windows 10 upgrade.

    I updated Intel drivers and Flux - no effect.

    System summary:
    Windows 10 Pro x64 to version 1607, OS build 14393.0
    Processor: i3-3220,
    Motherboard: Biostar B75MU3B
    Memory: 8 Gb DDR3

    Ask me something, if You need.

    And please help!

    We patched this bug here:

  • Yahoo! This version works good. Thank You!!

  • @herf Version 3.11 also solved my problem. You should make it the default download and replace 3.10.

  • Hello, I had this same flickering problem with the Windows update on that date - but my Windows version is Windows 10 Pro x64 to version 1607, OS build 14393.222.

    This is on a Lenovo X1 laptop with Intel HD Graphics 520.

    I have upgraded to flux version 3.11, and updated my video drivers, but the screen is still flickering with flux in night mode.

    Just wondering if there is anything I can do?

    Thank you

    @rswayne Thanks and I agree.

    It looks like Windows 10 code signing and Windows XP are incompatible.

    Believe it or not, we still have >500 XP downloads/day, so we are still sorting out what to do, but soon we will make the main download have this fix in it.

    @jeffreyarcher I am running the same build on my Lenovo T440s without any trouble yet. I would look for either a setting in the Intel video driver (DPST or panel self-refresh?), or I would look for any software in the "startup" that may be conflicting. Let us know what you find.

  • @herf Thanks for the ideas. I have disabled both DPST and panel self-refresh. Following a restart, it is fine for a couple of minutes - then it starts flickering again. I also disabled any startup applications that I thought could be interferring to no avail.

    I don't get the same issue with Redshift or SunsetScreen software, so might stick with those for now and check future releases of Flux.

    Thank you again.
