VmPlayer: Win 10 Host + Ubuntu 20.04 Guest screen blinking

This post was originally published on this site

Hi everyone! I/m using VmWare Player 16 on Windows 10 host and Ubuntu 20.04 as a guest. When I moved my VMs to new laptop (Dell 5411 10850H + MX250 GPU) I faced annoying issue – My VM screen blinking, flickering or i don’t know how to name it. i’ll try to explain:

When I click it different part of windows it becomes lighter or darker, imagine that you plays with contrast very fast.

It doesn’t depends on which monitor i used VM (external or internal).

OpenVM tools are installed.

Is there any iseas how to solve this issue. I had this VM on two laptops berfore, but only with UHD graphics, nothing like this happens.
