  1. Game flicker


    Hi. I am using windows 11 from the day it released. But lately the gaming laptop I am using is not performing well for playing games. The games are running smoothly, but for every 30 seconds the game will shake and flicker. Then again runs smoothly. I am trying to get a solution for this problem. What to do?

    :)
