  1. Make sure cables are good/connected properly. Second make sure card isn't overheating. Flickering screen is usually sign of a dying card or a dying display.
  2. If you haven't already tried installing this update I'd give it a go and see
    if it resolves anything.

  3. I reinstalled the graphics card drivers, and the problem still persists.
    I have done what dallasjoh and shadow reccomended and still no luck
    any more help on the topic would be appreciated
  4. You can always turn sleep mode off by going to;
    1. Start Orb
    2. control panel
    3. power options
    4. Change when computer sleeps
    5. put the computer to sleep
    6. never
  5. I know but knowing my computer isn't working properly bugs me, i dont like avoiding problems, i like to fix them. Thanks though.
    --Is there any chance that this could be related to the graphics drivers and maybe i should revert to the older 8.8?
