  1. Drop down menus of screen settings flicker and not able to change options


    Hi,


    I have a problem where the drop down menu of screen settings keep flickering.

    I go to settings-> Display , the orientation drop down menu keeps flickering. It doesn't let me change it from default "landscape".

    Then I go to "advanced display setting" and the resolution drop down menu keeps flickering and doesn't let me change it.


    I tried update the graphics driver and changing the screen refresh rate. But doesn't make a difference.


    Please suggest the fix.

    :)

    1. Right-click on an empty area on your desktop > Click on
      Display settings > On the right-pane, scroll down and click on

      .
