when you say flickering do you mean It's flikering like A a flash light being turned on and off? (if so lower your refresh rate)
If it is like looking into a bugzapper.> raise your refresh rate.

if you want it to stop flickering then raise the refresh rate to the highset i believe 75 is where you can stop seeing it but 85 is good
