  1. Monitor Flashing On and Off When Computer is Cold


    My wife's HP desktop PC, running Windows 10 Home Edition, is flashing the display on for half a second then off for a few seconds on boot up. This has been going on for about six months. When it started, it would do this for a few minutes, then stabilize as if something had warmed up. Over time the flashing duration has increased, so now it takes 15-20 minutes to stop flashing.


    I have updated the drivers and run several different malware checking programs and virus scans, which all came back with nothing found. The video board is part of the motherboard I can't swap it out. I know the problem is with the computer, since it does it on both the display port and the vga port and swapping the port and swapping the monitor doesn't help.


    Any ideas?

    :)

    List of software to use for overclocking and testing
    Examples:
    Wattman (and how to find and use it, like an overview, including profiles)
    Unigine Valley or Heaven (use this for quick testing while changing settings in Wattman and checking for stability / artifacts) ...just suggesting this
    How to monitor cores / mem speeds and temps during testing (I've seen screen overlays, and others using GPUz)
