The Device Manager in Windows 11 is one of the most functional and comprehensive utilities since thanks to it we can manage everything related to drivers and hardware changes in sections such as:

 

sections
  • network adapters
  • Display adapters
  • USB
  • firmware
  • Keyboard
  • Mouse
  • bluetooth and many more

 

 

An error that currently occurs in the Device Manager is that it keeps flashing, affecting its stability and being able to work on it. TechnoWikis has two solutions to correct this error and thus be able to carry out the support tasks that we need to carry out..

 

 


1 Fix Device Manager flashes from Settings

 

 

Step 1

Our first solution is from Settings, to use this method we go to the path "Start - Settings - Information":

Step 2

By clicking there we will see the following. There we are going to click on "Advanced system configuration" and in the pop-up window we are going to go to the "Hardware" tab:

Step 4

We activate the "No (it is possible that the device does not work as expected"" box:

step 5

This option allows available driver updates to be made by us personally but not automatically and the reason is that some of these updates may negatively affect Device Manager, after which we apply the changes.

2 Fix Device Manager flashes from Terminal


The error may be present directly in the operating system components, so review and correct this.

 

Step 1

We are going to right click on the Start menu and there we click on “Terminal (administrator)”:

Step 2

In the terminal we will execute the following command:
 sfc /scannow

Step 3

The SFC (System File Checker) command is responsible for analyzing and repairing the NTFS file system in case errors are detected. We wait for the process to finish:

Step 4

Now we are going to restart Windows to apply these changes:
