    Whenever i open IE or firefox in fullscreen on my new aspire one, it flickers, not black and white flickering but flickering in different colors, pink blue, and red. my bios is 3305, anyone have the same issue?

    further notes: This doesnt happen on lowest brightness but both low and bright, it also happens with plugged in or on the battery

    Another further note: its a flickering of the colors on the screen whenever i make firefox or windows full size. not the screen itself. when i resize the browser windows back to less than full size, it becomes normal
    Thanks

    Further notice:

    This does not happen on new system startup, this seems to happen after the netbook comes back from a system standby or the lid has been opened

    This goes away after 30-45 seconds of the window being open

    i did some more experimentations. it seems when you take down the brightness or contrast from the Intel Media Graphics accelerator utility in the taskbar tray, the flickering stops.

    is it the graphics card or the drivers.
