Does the screen flicker when you are accessing the BIOS as well?

I am facing flickering issue only on browser(chrome and mozilla).i reinstalled ubuntu and browser but not resolved.captcha section,on YouTube when i played any video this is the scenario of flickering.

That may be a hardware and/or driver issue. Which graphics driver do you have installed on your system, Rahul?

Rahul Arjariya (rahularjariya) said : #4

According to the Dell, troubleshooting there is no issue in hardware.issue may be in software.
I am using `i915` vga driver

A. Denton (aquina) said : #5

The driver is supported as far as documentation tells. It can safely be assumed that its not a Ubuntu related issue, but rather a hardware related one.

Can you help with this problem?
