I have a brand new computer (have had it for two weeks and it was built specifically for me) and have been having a problem with flickering when I go online. It hasn't flickered when using any other software so far and not during games. So I have been trying to figure out if there is a pattern and I am pretty sure it has to do with Flash. But it doesn't do it every time. For example I went to the site www.imdb.com and the flickering went crazy. There was a black line that appeared horizontally and several vertical lines all flickering on and off on that site. Then I went back to that site about an hour later and nothing. It worked perfectly.
So far I have uninstalled and reinstalled the most up to date video driver, swapped out the DVI cable, and reinstalled Flash Player, changed settings in IE9 to compatibility mode. (It also did it when using Firefox).
Here are my computer specs:
Intel i7-2600k Core i7 Processor
3.4GHz 8MB L3 Cache
Win 7 Professional 64bit
KVR1333D3N9K2/8G Kingston 8GB, 16GB TOTAL MEMORY
1TB SATAIII Hard Drives
ATI Radeon HD 5870 Video Card
Two monitors: 1 ViewSonic VG2728vm 27" and 1 Asus VE2454H 24"
Has anyone else experienced this problem or have any ideas? If I can't fix this myself I will have to pack up my entire system and go to the place I bought it so they can take a look. They are over an hour away from where I live so I want to try to resolve this myself if possible.
