My entire screen flashes black - ONLY when AdWords is the tab selected

Has anyone encountered this odd issue? This just started today. My entire screen flashes black, but ONLY when AdWords is the tab selected. I have three AdWords tabs open in addition to a few other business related tabs. Only when I'm on an AdWords tab does my screen continuously flash black as if my monitor is being turned off and on. I've tried closing Chrome and restarting, restarted my computer, cleared my cache, messed with my Chrome settings, etc. to no avail. I did get a notification that popped up briefly that said there were some network connectivity issues or something but I didn't get a good look at it before it disappeared. Does anyone have any idea what's going on or how to fix this? I can't launch any new campaigns or edit due to this issue.

Hi there,


Thanks for posting in the AdWords Community. We're sorry to hear about your experience. Can you see if the same issue prevails on another computer? We'd like to see if this is an account issue or a local computer-related issue.


We hope this helps you get going in the right direction.
