Guys, I got my new computer a few days ago and I'm already experiencing problems. So, whenever I boot into Windows, i get black screen flickering just after a user log on. I also experience the same issue playing some games, haven't tried too many stuff cause it's a new pc, not much installed....

Your video card or built-in video is already displaying that it could go south anytime. A replacement under warranty is the best choice at this point.

Did i mention it just flickers for a second, not more, after a user log on? It's like it's adjusting something, i don't know, but after that everything is completely normal. Does this change the situation? :D

Playing the game in full screen causes flickering, but when i play in windowed mode, it's all normal, I guess it's the drivers...

Do not unscrew or open the case as it will void the warranty. Do you have a different monitor to see if the problem is still present? Have you tried a different video cable or check the physical contacts on both desktop and monitor ends?

Everything is ok except flickering in full screen mode, but when I change to windowed mode of the game, then everything is normal...

So, whenever I boot into Windows, i get black screen flickering just after a user log on.

 

Do you still experience this problem before windows log in screen kicks in? If the problem goes onto game modes only , there are couple of things worth checking.

 

Default Refresh Rate or maximum support including native graphics resolution.

 

Video card GPU scaling for games related article

 

Microsoft Direct X download or update on certain games article
