  • kura_s,

    Can you better describe what you are experiencing?  Are you seeing the desktop blink when you are on the desktop or when you are looking at the desktop tile from the Start screen?

    What is your screen resolution set to?

    Have you tried a Refresh of you PC?

  • kura_s,

    Have you downloaded the latest drivers from the device manufacturers and ran all of the updates for the machine?

    Can you describe the blinking in a different way so that I can better understand it?

  • Since the manufacturers have not created drivers for Windows Developers Preview, I suggest you update to the most current Windows 7 driver.
    If that doesn't work, they try to install in compatibility mode.

    For the driver/drivers you downloaded use the compatibility troubleshooter to install them to see if that resolves the problem.
    You can do this by:

    ·         Enter the Start screen

    ·         Move your mouse to the bottom left of the screen to expand the Charms section

    ·         Select Search

    ·         Type Compatibility

    ·         Click Settings in the right column

    ·         Click Run programs made for previous versions of Windows

    ·         Then follow the prompts and direct the troubleshooter to the installer for your computer's driver.

    Let us know if this helps.
