    Windows 10

    I cannot fix the Windows 10 flashing screen. At my wits end


    So I have a home built system that I had Windows 7 on. I did the compatibility test and it passed for 10, so I upgraded. After the upgrade, I would occasionally start getting the flashing screen. Sometimes it would last 20 seconds to 3 minutes or so. Sometimes it would go a couple of days without doing it, then would do it multiple times a day. Finally getting tired of it, I thought it was my Video card, which is a Radeon HD 7750, so I went and bought a Nvidea Card. Come home, installed, downloaded drivers, and it started flashing worst than the Radeon. So I put my old card back in and returned the Nvidia.

    So after doing a more indepth research, I started finding this is a pretty big problem after upgrading. So I did all of the "fixes". Task Manager flashes when it screen does, so Microsoft says that its a driver issue. So, I 've uninstalled and reinstalled drivers... to no avail. I went in and disabled the microsoft error reporting services as well. So I finally just did a fresh install of windows 10. as soon as the resolution changed after install, the flashing started again. Now after fresh install, it seems to do it worst and now the whole screen will just go black.
    Im all out of ideas and options here. I wanted to come here to see if anyone can help me figure it out before I reinstall Windows 7 back on it.

    I have an
    AMD FX-6300 Vishera 6-Core Processor

    An MSI 970A-G43 Motherboard
    XFX AMD Radeon HD 7750

    16GB of DDR3 Ram

    Any Help is Greatly Appreciated

    Since you had a NVIDIA card and an AMD based card both fail the same way, you might want to look at your BIOS settings and make sure your BIOS version is current as well. I just looked at your latest available BIOS version and it is targeted at fixing a "WHQL test failure" which sounds like it could be driver related:
