  • I also see that issue affects the whole system. Just to make sure this is not related to environment could you please do couple of additional tests on your system. 

    While the screen is flickering, could you please press (Windows + D) key combination or (Alt + F4) and observe if the screen is still flickering. 

    Again, while the screen is flashing, try to press windows key to see if the start menu is also flickering. Please also test this issue with any documents (Word, Excel, Pdf etc)  to see if you can produce while scrolling pages. 

    I would also suggest you to do scrolling from different parts of the screen which may show us the issue is hardware related (Touch screen)  

    Please keep us posted about your progress resolving this issue, we will be happy to assist you.

    All the best,
