  1. Screen flickers on Windows 10 machine


    I have two monitors on my Windows 10 machine, both of which flicker every couple of minutes. If I'm engaged in some kind of I/O operation, like entering data, the flicker always disrupts what I'm doing.

    Steps I've taken already, based on internet articles I've read:
    • Updated video card driver
    • Disabled two Windows services:
    (1) Problem Reports and Solutions
    (2) Windows Error Reporting Service
    I also read that the iCloud application can cause flickering, but I don't have that app installed. Some video tutorials recommend uninstalling Microsoft Visual C++, but I have quite a few (23) installations of Visual C++, starting with with a 2005 version through a 2017 version. There are obviously many installed apps depending on these installations, and I am extremely reluctant to uninstall every app on my system one by one just to determine which might be causing this problem.

    Here are the characteristics of my machine:
    Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-2400 CPU @ 3.10GHz 3.30GHz
    Installed memory (RAM): 8.00 GB
    System type: 64-bit Operating System, x64-based processor
    Pen and Touch: No Pen or Touch is available for this display
    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 video card

    Product ID: 00330-80000-00000-AA430
    Windows 10 Pro 64-bit (10.0, Build 17134)
    DirectX 12

    2 Dell P1914S (Digital) Monitors
    Microsoft LifeCam Cinema webcam
