. . . no text appears on the screen until the flickering freeze ends. When this happens, my browser says "(Not responding)".
Can you clarify this a bit please ? Is this when you are typing in say a word processing application or in an on-line document ? The reason I ask is that the most common cause for internet video or audio stuttering is a poor internet connection. Have you ever checked to see what your connection speeds actually are ? If not, try 'speedtest.net'. It's not 100% accurate but gives a good guide, especially if you observe it over a period of time. You need to register to keep a log over time of performance but it is a free service and useful.
It would also be extremely useful if you supplied the make and model of your computer, its OS and which browser you are using.
He is saying that if you're typing anything on anywhere, lets say google.com, text won't appear until the computer stops flickering,
Now back to the topic,
Have you tried testing the RAM modules?
if it is a laptop, usually there is a compartment underneath your laptop that should say ram or have a ram picture:
If not, open all the compartments until you see the RAM, depending on you're system model there should be usually 1-4 ram slots, extract all the RAM modules inside and install one RAM module in a slot and boot up, if it continues, change the Ram that is currently inside into other slot and boot up again, repeat this in all slots and if changing slots helped then a RAM slot is faulty, if this did not help, grab another RAM module and repeat the steps above, do exactly the same to the other RAM modules, until you see your laptop up and running good again if not then we can rule out RAM. ^
If you're on a desktop, open the compartment door on you're desktop and search for the RAM that should look like ^ this: ^

An its located usually here: ^

And do the same steps as I specified in the laptop RAM testing steps above>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>^
Also can you specify the next things?:
Is it a laptop or desktop
Model and manufacturer of your computer
