      We now have some PCs in our company that,  since patch Tuesday on the 14th,  have been experiencing their monitor blink off and then back on sporadically.

      Anyone else having this issue?

      Issue was not seen prior to the recent patches.

      What version of Win10 do you have? 1809, 1903, 1909?

      Win 10 1909 is the feature build we are all on.

      What video card(s) / video driver(s) are you using?  Could be time for an update?  Check your current version(s) in Device Manager, then check the manufacturer’s website to see if a new version is available.

      Windows 10 Pro 64 bit 1909

      One of my customers had a video problem after I upgraded her from 1709 to 1909. Device Manager showed video and chipset driver problems, so I downloaded the video and chipset drivers from Dell and installed them on the user’s PC. I was then able to fiddle around with the video and get it pretty good (but not perfect). My customer may have done further tweaks on it to make it even better, but I don’t know, because she was going to call me if she wanted me to look at it again, and she never called me.
