    Notice you have a AMD video card -- and AMD just came out with new Catalyst 14.2 drivers. You should try those to see if that helps any.

    Right, I've done that, I installed the newest drivers of AMD. Before and after installing the newest driver I got this problem.

    I had the same problem and the monitor was the cause. Bad capacitors. Be sure to check that.

    I'm playing Metro redux with an other monitor, I lend it from my brother and I see that you are right about that, the cause is the Philips tv that I wrote here above. It's almost 2 and half years that I bought this tv. All that time it worked fine till now, but since a couple of days these flickering screen happens. I've no warranty more for my tv. The problem occurs since I reset the tv. What should I do? Thanks

    Get it repaired in a shop. I told you what it was (at leat in my case) bad capacitors. So, repair shop time.
