Blinking Display Screen while using WEBCAM

Before we start:

1) My questions and specs are at the end

2) My video and webcam drivers are updated

- Nvidia video card -

- INTEL video card -

- Webcam -


I have been using webcam a LOT in this quarantine for video calls. I use two types of webcams:

1) Laptop built-in camera ( Hardware ID ) OR

2) My brand new external Logitech BRIO webcam


Whenever I use either of the two webcams, the issue is the same - my screen keeps blinking immediately after starting the video call and after about 30 to 40 minutes into the videocall, it freezes my screen. The moment I pause the video OR disconnect the external webcam, the computer is back to normal.

What is odd is that other than using webcam, computer runs really fast, even on hard tasks like editing video on camtasia, for example. (See Specs below).

IMPORTANT to say that the issue happens either if i’m using the laptop screen directly OR if I’m using external monitors connected via HDMI (Tried 2 monitors. They work fine).


1) Is it my machine or have you guys had this problem also with the same model or similar models?

2) Could it be the video board?
