I just installed ubuntu 10.10 fresh and during the installation there was no screen flickering but after install when I booted into ubuntu, it started giving me real bad screen flickering.

When I take a screenshot it does not show the flickering in it.

Any chance you could plug in a separate monitor to the VGA port? To see if it's hardware.

Oh yeah I just tried what you said and there is no flickering on the external monitor. Also, after I changed my brightness to full and then let it be for like 10 minutes the flickering went away and then after around 15 mins later it is back.

I think it might not be the issue with the screen itself but I think its the problem with the driver itself. Also, I am not a pro :P

thanks for your quick reply, I really appreciate it.
