How to Fix Screen Flickering Issues on Windows 11
Update or Reinstall the Graphics Driver
- Start by pressing Windows key + R to open up a Run dialog box. Next, type ‘devmgmt.msc’ and press Enter to open up Device Manager. If you are prompted by the UAC, click on Yes to grant admin access.
- Inside Device Manager, expand the drop-down menu associated with Display adapters, then go ahead and uninstall every graphics driver by right-clicking on them and clicking on Uninstall. It’s important to do this for every entry inside Device Adapters.
- After every GPU driver has been uninstalled from Device Manager, go ahead and close the Device Manager utility.
- Open another Run dialog box by pressing Windows key + R once again. Type ‘appwiz.cpl’ and press Enter to open up the Programs and Features screen.
Inside the Programs and Features menu, scroll down through the list of installed applications and start uninstalling anything related to your GPU manufacturer (Nvidia AMD or Intel).
Note: Ensure that you’re not leaving anything behind by clicking the Publisher column in order to order them one after the other.
- Next, right-click on every GPU-related tool or driver and then click Uninstall from the context menu.
- Next, follow the on-screen instructions to complete the uninstallation process. Once every relevant driver is uninstalled, reboot your PC.
- Once your PC boots back up, visit the download page associated with your GPU manufacturer and download the latest driver version that’s available for your particular GPU model.
- Download and install the recommended drivers based on your graphics card model and Windows version, then reboot your computer and see if the screen flickering issues are fixed.
