When I am browsing on Tumblr or watching a video sometimes I see a quick flicker.
It's like greenish color. It's only like on the bottom left and just today I saw one on the left center and the right center of the screen. It's not always flickering but just sometimes.

I currently have "Mobile Intel® 945 Express Chipset Family" under my display adapters.
Please if anyone can help me asap? Thank you.

Have you made sure that all your drivers are updated along with any of your applications?

I think they are all up to date? This is happening in google chrome and when I watch videos on megavideo or youtube.

You download the flash update and install it. It should be automatic.

I am thinking that non-updated drivers are the issues here.

It seems you have the latest video card driver, when do you notice this issue?

May want to try this: http://global-download.acer.com/GDFiles/Driver/VGA/VGA_Intel_8.15.10.1867_W7x86_A.zip?acerid=633958540352429912&Step1=Netbook&Step2=Aspire%20One&Step3=AOD250&OS=742&LC=en&BC=Acer&SC=PA_6

While I'm Browsing/Scrolling It just flashes on a certain spot with like lines but it isn't big it's just like on the bottom left. Sometimes it flickers while I'm watching a movie but only one time it does it on a movie. It's not all the time just sometimes.

Since this is a new machine, I think that you should call Acer. It should still be under warranty, and could possibly a loose connection.

It doesn't happen often and I tried moving the screen back and forth just to see if it's the connection but it's normal. Do you know if I could change my graphic driver to nvidia geforce ?
