Preferred Solution: Refreshing/ flashing

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


I'm having this serious problem right now where my windows (i.e. Firefox, Task Manager) continiously "toggle" out of them and them "toggle" back. A loading sign is seen on my screen before the window flashes for a second and re-appears. It's making tasks very difficult and I have no idea what's causing this.

Windows7 64bit


In my Windows 7 (x64 bit)(all latest patches), when I open Device Manager, the entire list disappears and instantly reappears EVERY 2 SECONDS.
Strangely there is no sign any errors in the Devices that are being listend.

Also the sound card is also making a pong-pong sound - every 2 seconds. It sounds like two (low-ish) strings of a guitar being plucked... they are about 1 octave apart in pitch...

The pong-pong sounds are not QUITE in synch with the refreshing frequency of the Device Manager.

Any thoughts?
Do I have a virus? Or some weird conflict... ? or what?


A:Device Manager list flashing off/refreshing every 2 sec


Run a thorough anti virus scan

Download and run malwebytes.

Check the sound card, may be defective, and Look for current drivers.

If there are no virus and the sound card is ok, use a sytem restore from before the problem. That should bring everything back to normal

Hi Everyone!

I just joined and hopefully I can be of some help for others, but for starters I need to ask for help for myself! Before posting this, I did a search of the forums here but did not find anything identical to my issue.

I have a 10-month old Acer 5100 notebook that will no longer start Windows Vista (Home Premium if that matters).

A few nights ago I noticed the machine was at the "Windows did not shut down properly" screen (black background/white text). Unfortunately I was not around the machine when it got into this mode. The screen showed a list of 5 or less choices - I think the default highlighted choice was to let Windows search the hard disk for errors. I chose this but it didn't seem to start after watching it for several minutes. So being the impatient sort, I rebooted the PC and the same black screen with choices displayed. This time I selected 'Start Windows Normally' but when the system came back up it ends at the same screen again. (I believe the "Windows did not shut down properly" screen I was seeing was not the normal one I've always seen, but a different one with less choices, if that makes sense)

So I said forget this, I have a backup. I tried restoring a backup of the hard drive I made with Acronis True Image (I booted off the True Image CD). I chose to only restore just the C: partition. Both times I tried, it gets to over 50% complete then there's a message about the image being corrupt.

Hi guys, I was a part of seven forums for awhile.

I'm trying to troubleshoot my PC. Hopefully I'll figure this out soon. I mean hell I'm A+ certified I feel ashamed even asking for help but..

Lately I've been having a lot of issues with corrupted files, and things not working in 8. IE, I can't get into the "change PC settings" screen instead it prompts me that files are corrupted and I should pop in my installation disk and refresh my settings. However I installed using a USB flash drive and have no DVD drive in my rig. So it won't let me refresh. I tried mounting the image I also tried following one of the guides here for refreshing it via USB with no avail. So instead I booted it straight up from the USB installation flash drive and chose troubleshoot my PC and tried refreshing it from there. It error'd out and gave me this "refresh your pc this option is not supported on the operating system you've selected"

My OS is currently installed on an SSD. Intel 520 series one. I've had issues with this drive in the past. Randomly my LoL won't launch and it'll say that it's been corrupted and i've had to reinstall.

I've tried doing sfc /scannow and it DOES find corrupted files and attempts to fix them, however after I reboot nothing has changed.

Any suggestions/input would be MUCH appreciated!

When I installed Windows 8 on the day it was released, I had to do a refresh because the apps in Store were not working right. As I remember there were others having the same problem. Today I ordered a laptop for our granddaughter which will, of course, have Windows 8 on it. Does anyone know if there is still an issue where a refresh is needed?


I have been here for awhile, and I have not heard of anyone having to do an out-of-the box refresh because the apps were not working.

I read a similar thread, but thought it better to start anew.

Win XP sp2
Onboard video.
Comodo Internet Suite (scanned.)

Every so often, I think randomly but maybe a minute or so, there is a quick flicker of my screen, and if I am mouse holding the scroll button, or making a selection, either text or image, or have my mouse on a menu choice, I lose that control. I have to re-select, or click and hold on the scroll button to regain control.

This happens in any programme: word processor, photo editor, browser etc.

Sometimes, when the flicker occurs, a tiny icon appears in the taskbar. It is too quick to see properly, band when I tried to video capture it, the flicker would not occur.

There is also a very brief burst of disc activity. Maybe 1/2 second.

So it looks as if something is refreshing something when it thinks there is little or no activity.The title bar of the window I am working in goes rapidly white, so the window is losing focus during the activity, then regaining it very rapidly.

I have not been using this machine very long, so I can't tell exactly when it started. When I first noticed it, I assumed I had simply lifted the mouse button or something.

I can start stripping stuff away to see if anything that I have loaded is causing it, but given its rapidity and random nature this could be time-consuming, so I am asking if anyone has seen this who could suggest a possible reason...somewhere to narrow it down a bit.

thanks for any help

We have a web based software that we provide our clients that is accessed via a shortcut on their desktop. The first time the client accessed the site everything worked okay. However, when they try to access it now, it's almost like it is caching old information in there and not refreshing the website, so when they login it just pops back to the program's login screen.

We have tried clearing the history and made sure the reuse windows box was unchecked. Any ideas of what else we can try? I almost think something in IE9 is corrupt or not updating properly.

A:IE9 not Refreshing

I don't have an Internet Explorer 9 browser in front of me, but I'll take a stab at this, to see if I can help.


Press F12 while in your browser, to enter Development Tools.

Next, select the Cache menu (towards the top)

Then choose "always refresh from server"


This should effectively allow bypassing of cache, to show what's "really" there.

Let us know if that helps or doesn't help!

I need to do a reinstall, but I don't want to lose absolutely everything. I've got about 500gb of media I want to keep, and I've got a load of Steam games installed I don't really want to have to redownload. Will it keep all that?

And other than that, is it just like doing a reinstall?

A:What exactly does refreshing my PC keep?

When you reinstall the OS you would normally lose everything stored on the partition in question. Data on other partitions or drives should be untouched but for safety you should assume this will be lost as well. All applications, even if on a different partition or drive, will need to be reinstalled. All files of any importance need at least one backup copy while those of particular importance need 2 or more backup copies. Data can be lost dues to hardware failure and a variety of other causes as well. You need to be prepared when (not if) something happens.

I dont even know how to call this problem. I tried every thread everywhere, found nothing like it.

So here's whats going on - pc screen is doing what appears to be refreshing itself on a mouse click. Randomly, not on every click. Fx, when changing tabs firefox will flash all white and no change will take place. Same for browsing harddrive or anywhere around. Sometimes it happens 2 to 10 times in a row. So it may take 10 attempts and 10 refreshing screens to navigate anywhere.
The worst is when a windows is minimized. To bring it up again can be a pain in the bottom. It just wont respond!
On top of that, rarely, but it will do multiple refreshes in a row which makes pc look like its having a stroke.

I noticed it began shortly after reg cleanup. System restore or such is not an option anymore at this point, unfortunatly.

An important exam is comming up and my laptop has to work till then!
Any help will be greatly appriciated!

OS: Windows 7 Home Basic

A:Refreshing screen

This is an odd problem, but the first thing I'd check is to make sure your graphics drivers are up to date. If your graphics drivers are corrupt or missing, your computer then has to use your regular processor to draw the frames you see on the screen which can lead to odd behavior because it can't keep up. If the computer is being sluggish and not responding to maximizing windows and things like that, I'd also examine how much memory is being used by going into your task manager.

The problem began yesterday. Whenever I have my documents open (eg: "My Music"), I could be scrolled halfway down the page when it inexplicably "refreshes" itself, bringing me back to the top of the page! I'm just assuming that's what's happening here (refreshing). Likewise, the icons on my desktop will momentarily blink as if I had clicked "refresh". It seems to happen every couple of minutes or so and is becoming quite annoying. Does anyone know what could be causing it?

When I purchased my computer I bought Windows 8 64 bit OEM. So my computer came preinstalled and I didn't get a disc (with OEM you don't get a disc right?). Anyway, I want to refresh my computer but it asks me to insert a disc and I have upgraded to Windows 8.1.

I wonder if any one can help?

The problem:-

Pc running windows XP Pro boots ok into windows desktop THEN!

All the desktop icons including the task bar seem to disappear for a couple of seconds as if the PC is refreshing the desktop, but then once they reappear again, in another couple of seconds they disappear again! This goes on for as long as the PC is switched on....

I have managed on occasion to get to get to firefox and then to run online scans for Spyware / Virus's, all the time I was doing this, the window with the scan stayed on top and remained open but the desktop icons and task bar continued to appear and disappear behind it.

I have tried a repair install but it is still the same.

I would rather not wipe the drive clean and start again as with most people I am sure, as the disc size gets bigger and bigger = backing up things gets more and more difficult. (i don't have everything on this 120Gb disc backed up, so would rather not lose it!)

Any ideas what else I can try?

My laptop is a Compaq Presario CQ62, dual A3, 3Gb RAM, pretty much most bqasic model for this computer. The problem I am having is that the screen wont refresh. Not that it's flickering, or off, or bleeding: the screen will not refresh. If I press down/bend in a certain way at the top left section of the screen case, about a quarter of the way across the case, the screen will refresh, but only so long as I continue to bend/press down in that way. Once I let go, the screen wont refresh any longer. Other symptoms are the screen will turn white when powering up the laptop, and in order to get any sort of picture you need to press down/bend the case, as mentioned above, and open and cloose the laptop. I'm fairly certain its a cable within that's broken, but I don't know which cable it is. If anybody knows the cable or has any other solutions, please respond.Thanks!~Kenmathishd

I recently updated to windows 10 and it worked fine for a day. But today I noticed as soon as I opened my PC, the taskbar kept on refreshing. I even tried uninstalling IDT audio by looking at other forums but that didnt solve anything. Please help it continues for 2-3 minutes.

I am running Windows XP SP2.

The problem I am seeing is when I put a cdrom/dvd disk into my drive, the explorer updates with the cdrom/dvd information. If I eject the disk (either by software or hardware) and replace it with a different disk, the information in explorer retains the first disk information and contents. The only way I have found clear this info is to reboot the pc.

I am trying to install software that has 2 disks and since it won't refresh with the new disk, I can't install the software.

I am building my website in Dreamweaver 3. I am able to preview my changes in a browser, but when I try to go to the actual site my changes are not making it to my browser, although my husband's computer can see the changes as soon as they are FTPed to the site. I have my Internet Options set to refresh every time the page is accessed but it's just not working. I've also tried to have it refresh automatically with the same (non) results. I've restarted my computer numerous times and I just installed IE6 SP1 in hopes that would help, but it didn't.

Thanks to anyone who can help!
