I've had the same issue, never had it before but noticed it about 3 updates back. I haven't bothered to try an older update to see if that changes it but it's quite annoying.

For me it only happens when I turn my second monitor (msi optix) off. The main Dell one flashes so bad I have to either turn the other back on or turn freesync off.

Hi @Phoenixaura 

I do not know if this will help, but maybe try typing "Graphics Settings" into the search bar next to the Windows icon.

Then enable the "Variable Refresh Rate" option.

You can maybe also try having both monitors at the same refresh rates, it might be that the LFC algorithm is getting confused between your screens.

Kind regards
