  3. Dude, I am serious!! Your laptop is archaic. A Turion processor. An old ATI HD GPU with a measly 256mb of VRAM. What's the 4gb supposed to be? And that 256gb of ram can't be right. Either you are trolling or you are ignorant.

    The screen flickers precisely because your laptop is so old. PC's don't last forever.

    However, I guess you can try reinstalling the graphics driver. If that doesn't work, I think it's time to get a new rig.

  7. I hope you didn't just install a new driver on top of the old one.

    How you should go on about doing it is as following.

    Download the application from this site:

    Run it and it tells you to boot into safe mode, comply as the application tells you.

    Once you boot into safe mode, run the application again and select AMD drivers from the list, use the application to completely remove all traces of your graphics card drivers from your PC, then do a restart to boot back into regular mode, then do a clean install of your graphics driver. This way, chances that you'll get flickering again are much smaller. However, if you get flickering later even after following these instructions, then your laptops LCD or LED panel .....whichever it uses, might be damaged.
