I am new to Windows 10.
I don't see IDT Audio, but there is Conexant HD Audio. Is it safe to uninstall it to stop refreshing?
Just registered to be able to thank Tim for the IDT Audio tip. Tim how did you figure out that this was a possible issue? Would really like to know. It worked as well for me. Can't thank you enough. Actually rolled back an earlier WIN 10 install due to the refresh problem. Reinstalled WIN10 tonight after updating the graphics driver and still had the refresh issue, but not anymore thanks to you.
I did not see IDT Audio in Device Mgr, but it did appear in the Control Panel under Programs and Features. Simultaneously hitting the Windows button and the x will open a pop up on the lower left screen . Programs and Features is at the top of the list.
Hope this helps.
I had the same quick refresh issue while trying to access the Control Panel. Press the Windows and x keys simultaneously then select Programs and Features at the top of the pop up that appears in the lower left screen. This worked for me.
Pressing the Windows key 1st then the x key opens the pop up in the lower left screen. Thought I was pressing them simultaneously.
TIM. Thank you so much for the tip. I had the exact same problem with my Dell N5110. I was regretting my upgrade to Windows 10 until I found this. It fixed the problem.Thanks again.
had a same problem with fresh upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10. Windows desktop and explorer keeps constantly refreshing every 40-60 seconds.
My problem was in High Definition audio drivers. Error was cousing file RTSndMgr.cpl.
Unninstal drivers and restart windows 10. Win 10 then innstals auto drivers for your sound and thats it. Event wiever did not report any errors.
Heyy I see some of you guys can't access the control panel fast enough before it crashes...this was happening to me and then I remember about the task manager. Open up the task manager, go to file on the top left of task manager, hit run new task and a search box will pop up. Type in control panel and just hit enter and control panel should pop up. By the way before you can do all this you have to keep trying to open control panel until the screen just stays black and then open task manager with control + alt + delete....anyways once the screen is black and the control panel opens you shouldn't have a problem uninstalling idt audio like Tim said. I hope this helps
I had problems with the control panel closing before I was able to uninstall. I found this way of making it stay on .. This is what I did. In cortana type run and press enter
click on the run desktop option
In the open box type in msconfig
click on the third tab called services in the systems configure box
click on the heading service to get alphabetical order
scroll right down to Windows error reporting service and untick the box
this will stablise the control panel allowing you to uninstall the IDT audio file
fantastic fix thank you so much
