HP ENVY Desktop - TE01-1022
Microsoft Windows 11

It took me a few months to find the correlation but it reliably repros that every time my HDD stops spinning, the secondary VGA port connected monitor starts blinking (going black for 2-3 seconds then coming back on for a little while before going black again).  The workaround I have is to open Windows explorer and navigate to a folder on the secondary drive (HDD, the primary is SDD) so it starts spinning again.  Then the flickering stops until the drive stops spinning again.

 

This is pretty annoying.  Is there any permanent solution for this?

 

I have rebooted, updated drivers, factory reset the monitor, tried sleep settings (display and device never go to sleep) to no avail.

 

Thanks for your help!
