I have an Advent branded laptop running windows 8, approx 1 year old. After logging on the desktop loads up as normal then a few seconds later the display flicks off and back on, and off, and on ad infinitum every second or so until the machine is shut down.
When booting in safe mode with networking the problem doesn't occur. In safe mode I'm able to look at the system management tool and can see the events in question under the Application section (see attached screenshot showing recurrence of the event each second or so). The faulting application is quoted as explorer.exe. Extra error detail can be provided if required.
Any clues what is wrong? I've never experienced anything like this before on previous versions of Windows!
Help would be much appreciated.
