Monitor Flickering



  • From the last update my monitor starts flickering a lot randomly and especially when it says the time before bedtime. It also doesn´t work in game fullscreen even CTRL Tabbing and getting out and going back in to the game. Is there something it can make it work smooth like before?



  • I've got the same problem. Dual Displays. Windows 10 Pro. GeForce Game Ready Driver 445.87



  • In my case the flickering happens at 6 am and 9 pm specifically (The wake up time is set 8 am). Firstly the warmth of the screen is abrubtly replaced by coldness, then after about 4-5 seconds the monitor start to flicker between warm and cold display, as if something restrains f.lux from working correctly, it flickers for a minute and then goes back to normal.

  • I figured out how to do this manually within the monitor (I de-installed f.lux), with Custom RGB settings (please see below).

    I'm doing ok with two monitors, and these two settings: 2400K and 3400K

    For more details, please see my post titled: Flickering screen, again, with the latest version: f.lux (v4.118) . . . (08/04/20 I accidentally put this in the V3 forum)

    Research suggests that f.lux must talk directly to display hardware to work – no remote desktops.

    I'm curious to see if you get good results also!
