Screen Flickering RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    After applying a GPO that disables some windows services, the screen would start flickering each time the settings are opened at any server or client pc.

    Even after disabling the GPO, and starting all the services previously stopped, the issue continues to exist.

    How to stop the flickering and what's causing it?

    Thank you.

  • Hello,

    I solved the issue.

    When setting the gpo to disable the services, the system's permissions on the services were removed, which resulted the flickering of the screen when settings were opened.

    I reset the permissions to their default state and it all worked out.

    Thank you,

    Samer.

    Could you please tell me that what services are disabled?

    And except GPO settings, is there any other setting changed during the past time?

  • Hi,

    Thank you for your help.

    The methods provided are not applicable because the issue happens on a newly created machine with no apps and with all the updates installed. Also it is happening regardless if there is a screen plugged or if i'm connected remotely.

    Are there any other solutions that I can try?

    Thank you,

    Samer.
