When I start the game, it opens in window mode. After the game is fully loaded, I open the settings and change the window mode to full screen, but after that my screen starts to blink and changes colors (as in the screenshot). I tried to reinstall the game, but it did not help.
I Have a new notebook(Lenovo Legion Y520)

Hello nipanasovich and thank you for the report.
Do you click onto desktop/windows before the game launches or do you have any window that is set as "always on top" by any chance? As we are currently aware that these actions/settings result in the game launching incorrectly. Can you try to delete the contents of your C:\Users\*username*\Documents\DayZ folder, launch the game and then wait until the game loads without clicking anywhere in your windows and let us know if the game still has launched incorrectly?
If you right click onto desktop (in windows), go into display settings and then to advanced display settings, what is the "Resolution" set as in there? And when you open your in game video options, which fullscreen resolutions are available / you have been trying to use?
Are you running any specific third party programs in the background while playing DayZ? Have you tried to turn every running program off (including your antivirus) and then run DayZ to check if the issue is caused by some program interfering with DayZ?
Have you tried to run the game in different compatibility modes? Also, since there are two GPU's in your computer, have you tried to switch between them (and have you checked if the game uses the gtx 1050 as a primary card? This can be checked in the Nvidia Control Panel > Manage 3d Settings > Program Settings)? If not, please try and let us know here.
In windows, if you right click a shortcut or an executable and select properties, in the compatibility tab you can run the executable in various compatibility modes for different windows/set the program to run as administrator by default and similar.
When you have mentioned that you have tried to delete the dayz folder and it had no effect on the issue, was the one that you have deleted the C:\Users\*username*\Documents\DayZ or C:\Users\*username*\AppData\Local\DayZ? If it has been the second, can you try to delete the one from the documents?
