    *Does this happen with your battery installed by itself? Or does this happen with the power supply also plugged in?


    *Does this also happen in any other location? For instance a coffee shop or an airport?


    *Also when did this start happening?

    Happens with or without a battery
    Location doesn't matter still flickers
    I can't remember I use to just leave it alone for 10minutes and the Flickering stops. But it's been Flickering for 4hours.

    Ok, when was the last time you did a fresh operating system reinstall? Also did you try uninstalling the video driver and reinstalling?


    I do have to log out but i'll check back later.

    1. Check if the Drivers for the Graphics Chips are intact . Also try and Connect the system via an External Monitor and see if you have thesame flickering Display.
    2. Remove ,clean the RAMS with 90% Propanol . Also clean the RAM Slots on your system with a clean Brush. Reinstal the RAMs one after the other....
    3. If problem persists ,try another RAM that you know is functional .
    4. You may also remove the battery , hold down the Power Button for 60 Seconds ( without power cable) . Connect the Power Cable (without the Battery ) and TURN it ON . You may repeat Step 4 with Battery and Power Cable and Turn it on .
    5. If all of the above do not help, it may be a GPU related Problem .
