I have an HP530 Notebook PC that when the desktop loads (when you can see the desktop) the display flips on and off 3x then all is good. I downloaded the driver from the HP site and loaded it. Still have the problem. I just used the recovery cds to put it back to original configuration, but this issue was there long before I did this. All updates are up to date. Device manager said it was working properly. Not a major issue, but would like to resolve if possible.

Not sure if it would help primarily on the information (on/off) but have you tried the following then check the differences?

1. Running computer in Safemode.

2. Checking the power recommended options.

3. Toggling the refresh rate default.

4. Removing unwanted/remnants video drivers that were previously installed.

5. See if there are BIOS fix/enhancements feature for the particular laptop model.
