My computer constantly flashes and I cannot open drop down m

July 1, 2013 at 21:09:56
Specs: Windows 7
My screen keeps flashing and wont leave open any drop down menus long enough to select or even read. When I type a url or fill out details on the net, the cursor keeps going back to the beginning and wiping out what I have typed making it impossible to finish.
To fill anything out I have to type it in word thn cpy and paste to the web page.
The screen constantly flashes whether I'm on the net or not.
Also when it flashes while I am typing, letters and spaces that I have typed get missed in words.

Hi Jane,

Please let me know if you are using a laptop or a desktop. Also, let me know the model of the system.

Meanwhile, I would suggest you to boot the system in safe mode and check if the issue persists.

You may try troubleshooting the issue by performing clean boot. Please refer to the link mentioned below:

If the issue has started recently, System Restore can be used to restore the system to an earlier date. Please refer to the link mentioned below:

Thanks & Regards

"while I am typing, letters and spaces that I have typed get missed"

That makes me think it is a system fault (most likely software) rather than the monitor, display hardware or display drivers.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
