    Intel HD Graphics 520 Constant WHEA-Logger Event ID 17 Errors in Event Log on Windows 10 Home


      Hi, I am having a constant problem with Event Log  errors, in addition to screen flickering or instability or flickering when using f.lux. Does anyone else have this issue?

      I also need to point out that no action or program is needed to cause this error f.lux alone is not the sole cause, but it does make it worse. (it was happening before I even installed it). Laptop is less than 9 months from Release date, and have only owned for 2-3 months. Came with Windows 10 pre-installed from factory - not an upgrade. This issue is prevalent on Tech forums and can be found in Google searches as well. See below reply for additional Info (text limit met)
