Preferred Solution: Screen blink

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I recently started having an issue with firefox While it's open screen causes Firefox to [SOLVED] blink and i move my cursor to the top of the screen it'll start to blink If I remove my cursor quickly it freezes the computer for a few seconds and if I leave it there it will finally go blank and shuts down all apps and send my PC back to the log-in screen I have a password on my PC If I move my cursor to the right left or bottom nothing happens the computer seems fine I am currently using chrome with no issues and I tried removing and re-installing FireFox and I get the same issues It seems to have effected other windows programs now when ever i maximize the app and i put the cursor near the op to minimize or close the app I get the same blinking results and if left there to long it resets back to the log-in screen It only seems to effect windows programs and apps rd party apps adobe chrome etc seem to be fine

A:[SOLVED] Firefox causes screen to blink

If it's affecting other programs as well as Firefox, it could be a Windows problem. Try running sfc /scannow as admin with your Windows disc inserted to fix any corrupt or missing system files, then reboot and test.

I have no idea what is going on with my computer but if someone could please help, I would appreciate it more than you know! Anyway, I left on vacation last week, and un-plugged my computer. I returned today and have been trying to get on it all day with no avail. (I am on it right now in safe mode+networking) Everytime I start it up it gets to the welcome/login screen and the screen is all shakey and flickering I can barely make out what anything is...I got lucky once and clicked on a login name and once logged in it did the same thing just all messed up - i cannot see anything. I tried a system restore but only had two available dates and niether worked...Can someone please tell me what to do!! :) Thanks in advance!

A:Screen Shake, Blink, Flicker...

Taking a complete stab in the dark, I'd try to update the driver for your graphics card from safe mode. Safe mode uses a different driver to the one used during normal boots, so that points to a software rather than hardware issue and probably explains why safe mode fixes the problem. Perhaps. Maybe.

You say you don't have another computer to use, but your posting from a computer? Anyways to backup your files use a Ubuntu Live CD to a USB Flash Drive
To Repair your computer boot off of the XP CD and get to the Recovery Console, here type chkdsk /R and press enter. The Check Disk utility will try and fix any file errors.

A:Help Asus x450JN my screen blink randomly

When it does blink, does it go black then back to normal screen ? Now it could be failing hardware, bad connection from hinge to monitor and even possible interference. Also could be the Video adapter drivers are corrupted.

This is the laptop ?

I believe from specs shown here it has a NVIDIA Geforce 840M, if you can double check that, go to the Control panel then the Device manager, go to Display adapter left click it, it should tell you there the model.

If it is correct NVIDIA, first thing i would do is uninstall older drivers, either go back to Control Panel in Programs and Features do it there, but first download the latest drivers here NVIDIA DRIVERS GeForce Game Ready Driver WHQL

After uninstall reboot and install one you downloaded, see first if this helps the blinking.

My Compaq 615 laptop screen doesn't come on, instead it blinks capslock 5 times. What shlould I do? It has an AMD Athlon X2 processor, with Radeon 3200 graphics. I didn't install any new software or hardware recently. All I did was work with the system at night, shut it down, and when I turned it on the following morning, the screen refused to come up, but the caps lock blinks 5 times.

A:Caps lock blink 5 times on Compaq 615 laptop, but screen doe...

Sorry to hear that. Please refer to the Blank Screen LED Error Codes document from HP Support. It sounds like a "General system board failure." The explanation says to contact HP for assistance. The motherboard might need to be replaced, and you will probably require the assistance of a technician to fix the problem.

On my low end netbook, I patched UXTheme using Universal Theme Patcher. When I rebooted Windows, the loading screen started blinking on and off and it wouldn't load. I needed to power off the computer, restart in safe mode, and unpatch UXTheme. Universal Theme Patcher works on my laptop, so why won't it work on my netbook?

Who knows it may just not fancy it, maybe try this:

This is a really hard one to describe.

Text in a text editor or sometimes a small window like a dialog box, install box etc. will regularly blink. It's not really a screen redraw where it disappears and reappears, just a blink.

I updated my graphics driver for my Matrox G400 and it still happens. This didn't used to happen on my W2K system.

My XP install is rather new with the same hardware as the W2K system and I don't remember this happening right away. I'm not sure what changed.

I tried going down a level on graphics acceleration and that didn't help.

Thanks for any help.

hello lemonflavor,

now what i need to do is go to your (device manager)

now once there you will want to select from the toolbar of the window(veiw) then a drop down menu / from it you will select (show all hidden devices)

now if you see any (red or yellow) quotation marks , make a note of what they

now go to the (event veiwer) this is thru the (administrator tools) in the control panel
here you will find 3 to 4 subcatagories

you will want to check each of them for this is where windows keeps track of all errors
now you will want to make notes of the errors that have been recorded ( you do not have to make notes of double entries just of the dates of their happenings & how many there is)
you will get more information on the errors if you (right) click them / then select properties


do you have a Windows Xp cd, not the restore cd's that come with some systems, the cd will have the Windows logo & 3D hollowgram/image on it

if you do not maybe you can barrow one from a friend/family member/co-worker as long as it is the same version that is on your system

if you have (Windows XP Home Ed. sp2 ) then the cd will have to be that / if you have a cd with (Windows XP Home Ed. )you will have to slipstream (SP2 ) onto a disk that you create

this also applies to (Windows XP Professsional )

now if you do have the Windows XP cd with sp2 please follow these steps


performing a (sfc) system file checker

It is a scan that checks the core files & dlls of the (os) operating system and replaces them if they are corrupt or missing with the correct original version


#1 then select (run) , then press enter
a window will open
#2 type in ( cmd ) then press enter
another window will open
#3 type in ( sfc )then press enter
another window will open
#4 type in (sfc /purgecache) then enter / your pc will work like crazy / this helps in rebuiding the cache file (notice the space between (sfc & /)
#5 type in (sfc /scannow ) then press enter ( notice the space between the (sfc & / )

now a scan will start , have your (Windows XP software disk ready ) your pc may ask for this disc when it starts or during the scan( so you must sit with the pc while this scan functions ) , if it does then incert the cd into one of your cd/rom/player's , your pc will then reconnize it and continue , you will then have to minimize the splash screen for the cd to see the scan , when the scan is finished you will need to close the cd and all open windows , then remove the cd

you will then need to do a ( Disk Cleanup ) , then empty the caches & temp files thru the (Internet Options) , then do a defrag

restart your pc

then do a defrag again after the reboot

then get back to us

fter connecting the AC power supply to CPU and on pressing start button , CPU light does not blink spontaneously ,It took 3 to 5 minutes to start blinking and window start immediately as light start blinking on start button .Reliability report does not show any error.Pl suggest me some remedial action

A:CPU light does not blink spontaneously

Ehm, CPU is "central processing unit", a computer component. It does not have a light linked to its operation. If by CPU you mean the whole machine, call it "computer".

If that led is close to a symbol that resembles a lightbulb, then it's the power led, and tells if your computer is actually getting power or not. It should go on when you press the power switch and remain on until you shut down the computer.
If it is close to a cylinder symbol, it is the memory usage led, and tells if your computer is reading from its main internal memory device. It does blink randomly when in normal operation and if you don't experience other issues you can safely disregard it.

Other leds can indicate the wifi connection or whatever the maufacturer thought to place there, if it's not one of the above, try to describe it or find an image of it from google.

Please follow this tutorial to fill your system specs (step 7 to do it automatically), so we can know what is the thing you have in your hands. Without knowing more, help provided will be limited.

I get a message that says "no signal input or cable disconnected" when I try to turn on my computer and then the screen goes blank. Then the monitor goes into hibernation. I have a Dell Dimension 4500 hard drive. I have unplugged and replugged everything I can find on the back of the hard drive thinking something may have been disconnected, but everything seems to be fine there. The power button is on, but the hard drive light is not on. Also, none of the disc drives will open when I push the buttons. It's like there is no electricity to the harddrive, but there must be as the power light is on. And it looks like all the electrical plugs are ok.

Any suggestions? I am not very inept at computers so please, simpler the better.

I am curious why UAC notifications blink the screen out when they come up. When you install an app or try to work in a directory that is under the UAC watch the screen goes entirely blank then pops up with the UAC warning.

Did windows design UAC to do that purposefully, does the UAC message require some sort of display format that it has to go into a special mode?

A:Windows UAC why did they design it to blink?

If I'm following you correctly, it's to prevent taking action before acknowledging UAC. As you're aware, you can disable the feature.

I have 2 DVD drives, a Samsung SH-182M and an LG GSA-H22L, both on a single lead to the motherboard.

They were working fine up until today (both with original drivers).

I placed a CD in the Samsung drive (it contained an old Win 98 database).

Both drives simultaneously went on the blink.

They don't show up in My Computer, but they do in the Device Manager under their personal titles (as in, not unrecognized).

Both show the yellow warning sign next to them.

I have tried reinstalling the drivers, but the drives do not show up during the installation, so i can't proceed any further.

(The drivers i downloaded are 'SFDNWIN.exe' for the Samsung, and 'GSA H22L 102.exe' for the LG.)

I have no idea how to proceed any further. As the drives don't show up, I can't use the original CDs.

My MAG Innovision 15" monitor has begun "blinking" during use. In every instance but one an area develops random black and white static-like images that run horizontally across the entire screen. This happens for just a split second and on an irregular basis. It may go half an hour without an episode, then have five within a minute or so. On one occasion the entire screen went blank for approximately two seconds.

I switched the computer I have hooked up to the monitor and the problem continued, seemingly eliminating problems peculiar to the original computer and isolating the problem as one with the monitor. Should I begin looking for a new monitor? Can this one be saved? Should I even worry about it?

My Fathers PC is running vista home premium (64bit) and has decided to go wonky.

It is a genuine install, but he has lost the CD and the boot options / system restore etc is not making a difference to the problems.

I have advised upgrading to win 7, but I just wanted to check with you guys, that we can run the upgrade (with a new win 7 home premium disc) from the disc drive, even though vista itself is not booting up?

We will of course want to keep all programs and files etc?

Thanks for your help in advance...

A:Vista on the blink - can I install Win 7 ok?

Since you are using an upgrade disk you will have to use this tutorial a Clean Install with a Upgrade Windows 7 Version as widows 7 will not activate trying to directly upgrade from vista. Also some of the errors from the Vista installation may be carried over to the Windows 7 installation if a direct upgrade was possible, however If you thoroughly read & follow the tutorial in option two there is a way to retrieve some of your data from the windows.old folder but not installed programs.

I would also recommend that you get a second, third opinion from many of the skilled members here before proceeding as some have lifelong experience dealing with computers.

Another option if you do not want to lose all your data and programs would be to check the Vista forums (see link just below search) as many of the same members here are also members of that forum too and may be able to fix the wonky vista installation

A cursor is supposed to flash, but under certain circumstances it does something else: it blinks every time I type a character.
This only happens when I've typed some notes at the bottom of my doc and then pushed them down a few lines to separate them from the text I'm writing. It never happens when I'm typing on the last line of the document.
I've tried copying the paragraph mark from another paragraph to the one I'm working on, but it doesn't consistently work. Paragraphs farther up don't have the problem. Sounds minor, but for a writer who stares at the screen all day it can be maddening!

Hi, I have a Lenovo Y70, and every day I go to work on it, the cursor blink has reset to the slowest every day (often more than once a day) I have to go to the control panel, select "change cursor blink rate" and hit OK to the settings (note: the settings always show they are selected to correct position, but I have to hit OK to initiate them again). As mentioned above, I have to usually do this multiple times a day. I have thoroughly tested the computer for viruses, and it appears clean. This has been very annoying and I was hoping someone in the community knows of a way to resolve this issue. Please let me know if you have an answer. Thanks,Nate

Edit: Discovered laptop wouldn't sleep. Paused the OneDrive Sync and it slept. Running the OneDriveTS.diagcab fixed it.. No more blinks every 30 seconds.

Hello, Any certain meaning for LED caps-lock blinking (white) one-two,  one-two?No change in frequency,  no beeps. I found a page about the Caps-lock LED blinking sequences.*This one is blinking in two-times sequences.    But on the HP "legend" to interpret the blinkingI did not see a matching interpretation for that one-two,  one-two,  sequence.[The closest ones were 4.2  and 4.3 but I have "no beeps" and these are only two blinks (not followed by a slower nor faster blinks).] This is for an HP split x2  tablet/notebook.  *

I downloaded "eEye digital security" thinking it sounded good. WRONG!
It downloaded hundreds of files, eats my computer resources up and, I can't get rid of it. It did not leave an icon on the add/remove programs on the control panel. When I try to manually delete I get an error message, "cannot delete file" "Access denied, make sure file is not full or write protected or file in use. I tried to reinstall and uninstall and can't get rid of it. I e-mailed support from eEye digital security, they called from California and worked with me for about an hour and 1/2. Said he would call back. Could someone please tell me how to get this mess off my computer? In simple language? Greatly appreciated!!!

When I click show desktop to return to my desktop, or if I open a folder from my desktop, all of my desktop icons quickly blink as if refreshing. It only happens for the first time opening a folder-then it stops when I open other folders, until I switch to a program like Chrome and then go back to the desktop and it starts again. It's quite annoying. Does anyone have an idea as to what might cause this?

Hi, I'm new here and pondered what place to post this, but I ended up posting it here. It's not a computer-threatening problem, but it's annoying.

I noticed that when I save anything using Google Chrome (my primary browser), whether it be Pictures or Websites, my three gadgets (calendar, clock, weather) blink and flash to the top of my processes. I've tried disabling them and renabling them, but it doesn't work. Turning them off obviously solves the problems.

It it helps, I was recently upgraded to the new version of Twitter, which is apparently a resource hog. That could be an issue. I appreciate any help I get with this issue. Thank you!

Have you checked that your fans are spinning up? Is the heatsink sitting flush with the CPU? Have you made any changes to your hardware on the mobo?

If you have a Lexmark printer...try uninstalling and reinstalling it.

If you had a Lexmark printer at some time, this may have been a leftover startup pointer...which now has no referent.

Then could be malware...I've never seen a path with the numeral 3 in it.

Why did you restore your system?

System manufacturer and model?

I have an older (2004) Sony Vaio. I don't have the model number in front of me, but wondering if somebody can help me with a problem. Here's what happened:

Just bought a new video card for the computer (video card is the correct one for my computer). The computer was left on yesterday and I noticed later in the day the LCD screen was black and the keyboard and mouse lights are steadily blinking green, on and off. Tried to shut the computer down by the on/off button on the front of the computer. No go. I had to unplug the PC and I tried to fire it up and again it gave me no video and the blinking.

Please help me... before this happened, the computer worked great!!

Thank you for any help you all can give me!

My HP Probook does not turn on. When I press the power button, nothing happens. But when I connevt the AC adapter (both with and without the battery) the light beside the AC port continuously blinks white until I unplug it. I tried the method to unplug everything and hold the power button for 20s, nothing happened.What is the problem in this case?
