I've recently updated my laptop to Windows 10 Anniversary update. I've noticed a certain bug, or more like a glitch, the brightness changes whenever I hover something, links/buttons... anything that changes my cursor to a pointer, this happens only on chrome.

Has anybody encountred a similar glitch ? I did a full wipe and reinstalled windows and chrome, still the same issue, graphics up to date.

  • This issue was resolved by an automatic update of Windows, I couldn't update Intel's drivers as it prompts me with an error saying the driver was not ment for my hardware (used both Intel releases and my manufacturer Asus release to update but without success) After a while, an Windows update noted a new driver update for integrated graphics, and magic, it's now resolved. TL;DR MSFT messed up in their AU – Rezrazi May 14 '17 at 12:06

I experienced the same problem this morning. Solved it by going to:

Start -> Settings -> Display -> Advanced display settings -> Display adapter properties

Under the 'Adapter' tab to go Properties -> 'Driver' tab -> Update driver

Hope it works for you too!

  • Thanks mate, Intel was showing the driver was up to date, while it was far behind the latest version. – Rezrazi Oct 8 '16 at 10:14

If the flicker problem only happens in chrome, go to chrome settings > show advanced settings > under the heading System, untick "use hardware acceleration when available" Hope that helps :)
