MSI 1050 Ti Flickering Issue resolved
Dear All, My first post. I worked all day with NVidia support to resolve a second monitor flickering issue and I want to share what resolved it for me. I went through all the DDU process documented [url]https://forums.geforce.com/default/topic/550192/geforce-drivers/display-driver-uninstaller-ddu-v12-9-6-0-released-07-02-14-/[/url] As I progressed through the versions 375.63 - 390.77 I noticed that it got better, flickering was less frequent. I then decided on the advice of Nvidia, to install the drivers with the DDU process above, but disable my internet (I disabled my wifi card). I then noticed that installing the latest with Driver and PhysX only with fresh install disconnected from the internet that the flickering stopped. As soon as I re-enabled my Wi-Fi card it started to flicker again. I then checked the TP-Link card for my Archer T9 adapter[url]https://www.tp-link.com/us/products/details/cat-5519_Archer-T9E.html[/url] and noticed that I didn't have the Microsoft certified drivers installed, I upgraded the drivers for the internal Wi-Fi adapter and the flickering stopped. This only happened on the DisplayPort which was leading us to believe it was a Nvidia driver issue, but on doing a fresh install disconnected from the internet that's when I noticed the flickering stopped. I have been working on dual monitors for the last few hours and I have not had any flickering with the Wi-Fi adapter enabled and connected to the internet. I hope this helps someone else and if you follow the DDU process and disable your Wi-Fi adapter it may just save you a whole day of trouble shooting. Happy to answer any questions.
