just began last week.  every few days or so and getting worse.  I get blue screen start in safe mode then exit and restart and problem goes away for short time.  I do not over tax this card and havent gamed in some time. cannot raise refresh rate of dell monitor past 60 mhz but monitor is working properly.  Any suggestions? possible reasons for this issue?  thanks!

If by flickering you mean the image rapidly jumps up and down by one scan line, then its probably the infamous problem that happens when many of amd's newer cards transition between light & heavy workloads.

I have tried 2 brands of HD7850 and they both began to do this shortly before they began to have black screen / hard lock issues. They ran flawlessly for months and then became unusable, despite never having been overclocked.
