    Hi softwaremaniac. I tried this time this option. I downloaded a (new) software upgrade for my television, after installing everything works fine now. I do not have issues (screen flickering) during gaming, during using windows and watching movies. This is so great. I'm happy to see it's working fine again. So that's what the cause for having flickering screens. Thanks again!

    Hi me again,

    I got the same problem again, this time during gaming in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. A time after I upgraded the driver of my Philips tv I thought it was over, but now I'm getting the flickering screen again. It freezes sometime in game. I will test it again on an other monitor. See the video here below.

    I tested on an other monitor and I got the same, flickering screen is happening too. Maybe good to know, on station c: (Vertex 4 ssd) I installed windows on it and all programs and games, the other harddisk (station d: Seagate Barracuda 7200.7 80GB)I use for back up, this one makes a lot of noise, especially when the pc is busy, espacially during gaming for example. (I don't know of that is a problem) What can I else do to find what the problem is, I self think it's a hardware problem, maybe the graphic card. Please help. Thanks!

    Try an older version of the driver.
