Sometimes I get flicker on my screen. It only happens, when I wake my computer from sleep. I can't do anything and is left with no other option than to restart, or turn off my computer, as it persist. I have uploaded a short video, which shows my problem. Please pay attention to the monitor to the right, as it is the one which flickers:


I have recently made a fresh re-installation of windows 10, and have already installed some drivers. I have installed the latest drivers for my graphics card, but not the chipset drivers.

My specs are: OS: Windows 10 (version 1511, build 10586) CPU: Intel Core i5-3570K 3,4 Ghz (3,8 Ghz) Motherboard: Gigabyte Z77X-D3H Graphics card: Nvidia Geforce GTX 660 EVGA

Could somebody please explain what causes the problem, and how to solve it.


You can try going to your BIOS and disabling the integrated graphics video output so it always boots on dedicated graphics card. Every BIOS has a different name for it but after some digging around you should be able to find it (mine is called PEG/IGD option)

Alternatively you can try installing the Intel HD Graphics drivers, if you have not tried that yet.


I have tried to disable the integrated graphics card through BIOS, as you suggested. That didn't solve my problem. I still get flickering screen occasionally, and last time it happened, I observed that my computer restarted after a short time.

I took a picture, when it happened last time.
