My computer randomly restarts for no apparent reason.

Also, my screen occasionally flickers on and off.

I don't know why but the flickering stops when I run a defender virus scan?

These things never happened with windows 10.

Are these windows 11 problems?

Mine did that this morning also. Is yours a supported device? This Win 11 is running on an unsupported device. I never had the problem with Win 10 either.

Have you checked in Device Manger to see if there is a problem with any drivers?

Does the Taskbar briefly disappear when it flickers?
No. It just flickers to blackness for between 5 and 10 in random intervals of 30 second to 5 minutes.

To me it does sound like a problem with the driver for the video card. I would check the Acer site or the manufacturer of the video card and see if they have an updated driver.

Updated firmware and graphics, wireless, and bluetooth drivers.

We'll see if the issue persists.

It just restarted again on its own. So, that problem not solved.

My computer randomly restarts for no apparent reason.

I just updated firmware and video, wireless, and blutooth drivers. And five minutes later it restarted again.

Is it a firmware problem or windows 11 issue?
