Installation :: Screen Flickers And Then Explorer Closes

Jan 7, 2016

On a Dell Vostro 3550 laptop, there were a few issues with Windows 7, so I erased the drive, did a fresh install of Windows 7 Pro, downloaded and installed all of the drivers from Dell. Then did a Windows 10 upgrade. When Windows 10 would first boot, it kept giving a 0x error. I did all of the Windows 10 updates and that error went away. But it would boot to a black screen.

I plugged an external monitor into the laptop and updated the BIOS to A12 and I have video on the laptop again. The main problem I have now is every minute or so, the screen will flicker and explorer restarts. As soon as it flickers, the task bar is gone for a second and then reappears. I have uninstalled the video and sound drivers but this didn't change anything. Is there something else to try to get Windows 10 to work correctly on this laptop?

Laptop Screen Goes Blank And Flickers

Sep 30, 2015

I was working on this laptop when quite often, after startup or in the middle of something (random), the screen goes blank and flickers, with random lines, etc. but you can't see anything.

When I am able to actually see because the problem hasn't started yet, everything works fine, no slowdowns, etc.

Moving the lid does nothing to alleviate the problem.

What is the potential causes? GPU? Battery? HDD? I did a BIOS test that said the HDD needed to be replaced. Laptop is older, back in the times of Vista. But I don't think it is the OS because this happens right at boot sometimes, other times at the logon screen, and others while inside.

Drivers/Hardware :: Waking From Sleep Screen Continuously Flickers And Refreshes

Aug 16, 2015

I have an Asus Zenbook UX303LA, and I upgraded to 10 yesterday. When I put the comp to sleep and wake it up by opening the lid, the screen begins blacking out and refreshing. Everything else seems fine--I can open apps, navigate the desktop and so on, in between the black outs. The problem has so far been solved by restarting each time. I can't find any information on this issue, so I don't know what might be causing it (driver incompatibility with 10 seems a likely culprit--this was not at all an issue with 8.1, which is what I was running prior to the upgrade).

Browser/Email :: Send To Mail Recipient Function Has Stopped Working - Explorer Window Closes

Sep 10, 2015

At some point in the last couple of weeks the Send To/Mail Recipient function has stopped working. When I select a file and do the send to, Windows starts thinking, the explorer window that I have selected this from stops taking input and then eventually, with no error messages, the explorer window closes and desktop explorer resets.

Start Menu Screen Opens For A Split Second And Immediately Closes When Icon Clicked

Aug 26, 2015

At the far bottom left corner of the desktop resides the Windows 10 logo.   It is suppose to open to a menu of 3rd party apps and Windows functions.
When I click the icon with a mouse, the menu screen opens for a split second and the immediately closes. This does not allow me enough time to open any 3rd party program on the menu or to employ any of the listed Windows 10 apps.
This also means that  I do not have time to click on restart or power down and must do a hard shut down pressing the power button on the computer case.

Desktop Flickers When Click On Start Menu For Longer?

Sep 17, 2015

after been using Windows 10 since launch I've got annoyed by those silly things whenever I click start menu for longer than like 2 or 3 minutes. When it happens, the windows desktop flickers to black. I uninstalled the drivers and used the microsoft generic drivers and it does the same thing. Of course, when I go to safe mode and I can't use the start menu as it just opens and closes in less than the second on its own. Because of this I've been researching this through Google and it somehow all of that kinda doesn't seem to relate to that. Also, I get the error message when I shut down and I couldn't get to see the error message because windows shuts all that stuff down.

Why Does Mail App Open And Then Closes

Aug 18, 2015

I have upgraded to Windows 10 Pro (final non-insider version) with a clean install (formatted hard drive). The Mail app worked for a while but about a 3 days ago it stopped working. Whenever I open it it closes (I assume crashes) after about 5 seconds. In the meantime it is trying to sync my e-mail and I can open a menu like settings but cannot click anything else. I can't reinstall the app since the option to uninstall is not available on this built-in app. However a friend of mine ran into the same issue and he uninstalled with a powershell script. He says it didn't work. I have 3 accounts registed in the app 1 is outlook, 1 is gmail, 1 is yahoo.

Settings Menu Closes As Soon As Opened?

Jul 29, 2015

I just recently downloaded Windows Ten today 7/29/2015 and I wanted to personalize my computer. I opened the start window and clicked settings. The window flashed up but then disappeared. It isn't showing up in my taskbar or in task manager. I tried accessing it from the tile itself and the little button on the side of the window. I also asked Cortana. All of the results were the same?

Control Panel Closes Automatically

Dec 1, 2015

After Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1511 for x64-based Systems (KB3118754) I was unable to use Control panel since after few seconds of opening control panel closes automatically and returns you to desktop view causing you not being able to use any of control panel features.

I have a Dell Inspiron 15 N5050 upgraded to windows 10 from windows 7 home 64 bits.

The Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1511 for x64-based Systems (KB3120677) that came few days later did not solve this problem.

After some days of investigation I have found that for some reason Windows 10 1511 update had eliminated my IDT High definition Audio Codec that was working well so far and it has been replaced by a High Definition Audio with Microsoft drivers. This was causing Control panel to close automatically. You can check this using Device manager, Sound video and game controllers to find that a High Definition Audio is present (using a Microsoft driver) but there is not the IDT High Definition Audio Codec that used to be there for my laptop model.

To solve the problem I was able to retrieve from Dell downloads the IDT High Definition Audio Codec driver suited for my laptop: IDT 92HD87B1 Audio Driver For Inspiron N5050 R308434, an auto executable file that reinstalls IDT High Definition Audio Codec. (If you have the same problem be sure to use only the driver suited for your laptop model)

After this driver re installation and reboot the Control Panel works fine as well as audio features, including the IDT high definition control panel that used to be present within the main Control Panel (Hardware and Sound) for my laptop model.

Browser/Email :: Edge Closes Almost Immediately After Start

Nov 24, 2015

Now Edge is not a browser I intend to use full time but was asked to try Netflix in it to figure out another problem, see my Netflix thread on that one.

Every time I go to open edge I get the blue window to come up and then everything for it closes down. Looking at task manager while this happens I see it jump from open app to background process to then fully closed, nothing listed in task manager.

Once in a while it stays open long enough that I can see the address bar and other of its UI elements start to render before it vanishes.

Moving Mouse While Search Or Action Center Is Open Closes Them

Jul 30, 2015

If I click the Search icon on the taskbar and proceed to type something, the search results show up just fine, but the second I move my mouse to click on one of them, the whole window closes. This effectively makes searching impossible. If I click the Action Center icon in the notification area, it comes up (but on the wrong monitor -- I have my taskbar at the top of my right monitor and the Action Center comes up on the right side of the left monitor) but the same issue from the Search window happens - the second I move my mouse away from the taskbar to actually interact with the Action Center, it disappears.

Moving the taskbar to the "traditional" place (bottom of the left monitor) gives me the exact same results. I wonder if this has something to do with my mouse settings in some way. In Windows 7 I had it so hovering the mouse over a window for a second would bring that window to the front without having to click.

File Explorer Requiring Screen Refresh To Be Correct?

When using File Explorer (or while on the desktop), if he tries to delete a file or folder, rename it, move it, etc. the open file explorer window (or the desktop) does not change to reflect the action unless he refreshes the windows (or desktop) by hitting F5 (or for the desktop right clicking and selecting Refresh).
