It's Windows 7, my laptop  screen is flickering , i tried change the refresh screen (my laptop has a maximum of 60Hz), but it didn't work, then i formatted my laptop and the screen stopped blinking, but days later when my batterry was too low the filckering came again, then i tried using a REGEDIT : 
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop]
[HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Desktop]
and it worked,  but then when my batterry was too low the screen started flickering  again.

How hot does the laptop get? 

If it is really hot then it probably would be overheating and you would need to replace some internal components.

Maybe the heatsink or the fan has broken and it can't cool down. 

And one other question, has it ever shut down by its self? 

Hope this helps ;)
