First of all I would try changing the refresh rate on the monitor just in case it was that causing the problem. You can change the refresh rate either in the game or in display properties in control panel.
Next thing would be to update your graphics card drivers from the Nvidia website. Uninstall the existing drivers, restart your PC and then install the new ones.

Did changing the refresh rate work?

Download the drivers before you uninstall your existing drivers.
You can download the latest drivers from > http://www.nvidia.co...p_2k_93.71.html
Uninstall the current drivers using add/remove programs in control panel. You might have to set the refresh rate again.

Have you got the latest drivers for your monitor installed?
Does it still flicker if you reduce the resolution in the game?
Do you have the latest motherboard chipset drivers installed?

How do i make sure i have the updates for the motherboard chipset drivers I had a lot of computer problems a few months ago and my drive was wiped clean so i installed all software that came with my Dell how can i check for motherboard chipset Drivers that are suitable for my machine as i dont want anything to go wrong with it now as this took months to get all my computer problems sorted out. Thank you

Chipset drivers are here .
The latest patch for the game is here. I would recommend you install it in case that fixes the problem.
