    Windows 10

    Fuzzy display that goes away if text is selected or refreshed


    Hello,
    I have a strange issue, this started about a week ago after Creators' update. I have the system to auto-update all software and features from Microsoft. All drivers are up to date. I have manually installed the latest display driver for this laptop.
    Issue:
    • When I have many windows open, the display crumbles only in selected parts of the screen as shown in the attached picture.
    • This flickering doesn't happen in safe mode (with networking).
    • Doesn't happen with a live USB linux session either.
    • This is reversed upon selecting the text (for example in a webpage or a word processor document).


    System specs: Windows 10, founders update. Intel 4 series express chipset (Centrino processor) with 5gb of ram running windows 10 creators update.

    Solutions tried so far with no success:
    • Text scaling and DPI scaling,
    • installing various drivers including Windows 7 drivers for this display,
    • Going to safe mode, uninstalling the driver and deleting it and restarting,
    • uninstalling most of the programs and features (except MS office and a few other essentials)

    Can anybody help please?
    thanks and best regards

    Welcome to the Forums raghuveerkr!

    Well, that's a new one on me. Let me look around and see what I can find, but first I must ask why Windows 7 drivers for display? Have you tried uninstalling display drivers and letting WU select one for you?

    Since the processor is more than 10 years old, they don't have support for Windows 10, so tried all older drivers.
    I had tried uninstalling display drivers and let WU select one for me.
    I finally seem to have figured out the issue, one of the two memory slots seem to have a problem. I a,m not facing this issue as of now, i will wait for a few hours of usage and then mark the issue solved. Fingers crossed
    Thanks for your time
