    I can't take credit for this but it is a fix that worked for me. Someone by the user name of NualaMa at PC Adviser suggested this and it worked for me and others. I felt like I needed to pass this on because I know your anguish. One thing is, though, you will have to figure out how to boot into safe mode, which took me a while to figure out. Google it if you need to know how to do that. Anyhow here's NualaMa's suggestion which I cut and paste. Good luck!

    "There is a simple fix

    Open task manager ... under file (top left) "Run new task" ... type msconfig (yes it is hard to type as screen blinks, but it can be done) ... In the new box that opens (it may be behind the task manager box) go to Service Tab .... Scroll until you find 2 tasks that need to be stopped ... (1) Problem Reports and Solution Control Panel Support .... (2) Windows Error Report Service.... Disable these by unchecking .... Click Apply ... Click OK ... If you are prompted to restart, then restart computer .....

    This is the main issue causing the screen to blink . .. Ironic that the items causing the errors are the solutions designed to report errors to microsoft"
    Thank you very much for this post. My dad was having this same problem with his asus laptop for a month or so. He gave it to me to try and fix this problem and I came across this post and it worked perfectly. One thing I might add is; I didnt have to put my computer into Safe mode to make this work. After the computer booted up and started flashing on the desk top I did all the steps as previously posted. The only difference was that this computer started having this problem after a Norton update. So, when I went into the task manager steps, I selected Norton along with the first two; ( 1) Problem Reports and Solution Control Panel Support, and (2) Windows Error Report Service. This may or may have not made a different but, I also unchecked Norton 360 along with the other two. After the restart prompt, everything was back to normal. Thanks again

    My Toshiba laptop has exhibited this problem since going to W10. None of the suggested fixes worked for me and I have tried them all!

    It is intermittent and of varying intensity. When screen is flashing keyboard is dead so only solution has been to power off completely and re-power up when hopefully system then works. As problem is not reproducible then it is difficult to know if any course of action has 'cured' problem.

    A friend suggested removing power lead and/or battery

    My battery looks OKish. It runs down faster than it predicts but
    does recharge OK as judged by battery view app.

    I am working through another blog official MS W10 one with570
    people who also have this problem.

    However last night with battery in and mains power in, when flashing occurs
    I removed mains and system immediately shut down. It would not
    restart until mains power chord put in even though battery was in and charged, then restarted normally

    If this is consistent - I have done it three times so far- it
    would indicate a power problem but whether a new battery would help I am not sure . I shall continue to run on power plus
    battery and when flashing screen occurs remove mains power

    Hi ,

    So I recently went into Best Buy to trade in my Dell Inspiron 11.3 Computer and it started to updated at about 11% then it stopped and it popped up with an error code saying it couldn't reinstall Windows 10. So at Best Buy they wanted to charge me $150 to reinstall it and give me $75 for the trade in. So I took it home did some troubleshooting myself, through the command line I used this command "regedit" and using that command I was able to get the error code to go away but now my computer flashes the update screen , then reboots and its the same cycle over and over again for hours. Any suggestions ? I can't get back to my login page and my user interface is gone. So I can't sign in nor get past the flashing update screen without it constantly rebooting.

    I did that and for me didn't help for Windows 7/10
    Fix: Start -> Control Panel -> Set custom text size (DPI) -> Uncheck "Use Windows XP Style scaling" (click OK, apply, log off now, log on again)
