I've tried that as well and it didn't fix the underlying issue. It does not do it when we have Minecraft running. It only does it within the Windows shell and it increases in frequency with usage of any browser or office product. I also tried uninstalling and removing AV product and moved to a different one. 

 

I've also ensured that windows and office have all available patching. 


I have also updated the graphics card driver to the latest available version.

Unfortunately, no. I didn't mention it before but it did it in safe mode too and throughout the windows startup options menu. It seems to be slightly better, but still blinking.

You didn't post the make and model of this notebook, please do.

 

My first thought was that this could be a driver issue, but the problem persisted in Safe Mode.  Safe Mode uses a limited number or applications and drivers.  In Safe Mode the graphics driver used is not the GeForce driver.  If the problem doesn't persist in Safe Mode the problem usually will be related to a driver, this isn't the case here.

 

While we are on the subject of drivers, there isn't a GeForce GT 750M driver for Windows 10.  The latest driver is for Windows 8.1.

 

Have you looked in the Device Manager to see if there are any yellow warning icons or red error icons displayed under Display Adapters, Sound, video and game controllers?

 

Have you tried connecting to a external monitor to rule out the notebook display?

This is a Dell All in One Desktop actually. 

XPS One 2720 

Service Tag: DGDQTX1 Express Service Code: 29288716021

 

 

I'll try connecting an external monitor tonight to see if it also blinks.

Yes, it blinks while going through the advanced start up menu and also while in Safe Mode. 

 

It is worse when I have any application full screen.
