    Minecraft red screen keeps flashing, can't open the game


    Hi!


    I'm playing Minecraft for Windows 10 bought on November 2020. I've played during a month without problem then in December after the 1.16 update, Minecraft stopped working : it can't open because the red screen appearing when you open the game keeps flashing red and white screens.


    I contacted Minecraft support who told me to contact Microsoft support : I was in contact with 2 different people, we tried 2 different things but the game keeps not working.

    I tried to contact Windows support as Microsoft support told me but it seems like the little robot's algorythm is broken...


    It's been 5 months, I payed the game, I tried many many different things, we are a lot in this case and Mojang seems to don't care at all.


    If someone has an idea to solve this or had/has the same issue you're very welcome to answer.


    Here the Mojang support forum link where everyone having this trouble manifest : https://bugs.mojang.com/browse/MCPE-102530


    Thanks

    :)

    There are many possible reasons why the screen keeps flashing, like outdated display drivers or corrupted user profile.

    • Have you tried to update the display drivers?
    • Have you tried to check Windows update?

  3. Windows 10 Flashing screen with some downloaded games

    Hi David,

    Welcome to Microsoft Community.

    I appreciate your interest on windows 10 and also for providing issue in detail. I understand the inconvenience you faced. I will certainly help you with this.

    This issue could have occurred due to corrupt graphics drivers of computer.
    As you have mentioned it is only happen with some of games so I would suggest you to try to uninstall and install game and check.

    If it doesn't work then I would suggest you to uninstall and install latest graphics drivers from manufacturer website and check.


    If it doesn't work then to stop the screen from flashing I would suggest you to follow the below steps.

    Step 1: Open Task Manager. You can do this by hitting ctrl+alt+delete and selecting Task Manager from the list that appears.

    Step 2: In the top left corner, hit “File” and select “run new task” from the drop down menu.

    Step 3: Type “msconfig” into the box.
    Step 4: A new box will open. In this new box, select the Service tab.
    Step 5: Scroll through the list and search for “problem reports and solutions control panel support” and “windows error report service.”
    Step 6: Disable the two items by clicking the checked box beside them. The check should disappear.

    Step 7: Click Apply, then click OK.

    Step 8: You may be prompted to restart your computer. This is not necessary, but definitely recommended.



    I hope this helps.
