    flickering screens

    My screen frequently flickers regardless if using laptop monitor or external monitor. This occurs regardless of which window I have open or which program I am using. When it flickers I am unable to input from my keyboard and must use my mouse to reset the point where my typing input has stopped. When this happens it appears that a white screen opens in the background. Any help or suggestions appreciated, its driving me nuts. My computer is a new HP2000 laptop.

    1. Check if you have the latest BIOS firmware.
    2. Re-install the Video Driver

    If it's new, I would first consider bringing it back to the store. That doesn't sound normal.
