Try turning the refresh rate down. If when you make it lower the screen works like it should its on the way out. but don't worry they can last upto a year in this state.

But they are very annoying.

check it man. when the screen flickers, looses colors or fades... it has nothing to do with the g-card. the screen is defective and will soon need to be replaced.
