Windows 10: Desktop menu blink

    Desktop menu blink


    Hello
    I have a weird blink problem on my desktop taskbar menu.
    Problem is it eventually blinks
    posting here a quick gif
    I forced the problem to appear moving a pdf file from a folder to desktop and then back to the folder again.
    Notice the menu only blinks first time each time i drop the pdf file or any file on the desktop
    I have windows 10, gtx 970 and i7 6700k and 2k display on displayport cable, this been happening long ago.
    Thank you

    Hi martyalicante

    Have you tried a Clean boot to determine if this is a window issue or third party software?

    Then you now know this is not third party software.

    I would think next option is to isolate video driver. I would create a restore and more importantly a system Image using a tool like Macrium reflect. Won't likely need but better safe than sorry.

    First I would test in Safe Mode. This uses the basic windows drivers, as I understand it. If it happens in Safe Mode I would think it is coming right from Windows itself. If it doesn't happen then good indication it is within nVidia driver set.

    You could then try uninstalling driver and replacing with either older or newer driver. A word of caution. As you likely know messing with video drivers can have some undesirable impacts.

    Lets see what you find in Safe Mode.
