It is late evening here in England, so if you don't mind, I will post again tomorrow.
Thanks a lot for your help.

Well should I be optimistic today?!
I ran pc in safe mode and browsing on IE9 no flashing. I couldn't access windows live to see if this was still flashing as I received error message:-
Windows live could not be started, it may not be installed correctly or that I am out of memory Ox80041161.

If you want to see if it works correctly reboot and go into Safe Mode With Networking.
This will allow you to use the internet and Windows Live Mail.

Yes I started it in safe mode with networking and that was the error message. PC flashing quite bad today.

Since the issue with the flashing did not happen in Safe Mode it is a good indication it is a Video driver issue.
Please do the following and let me know if the program finds a updated driver for your video card.
Download DriverMax and have it scan your system. It will open their website with all the out of date drivers you can update. With the free version you can update only 2 drivers per day so if you have a lot of them it will take a few days to get everything updated. I have been using it for about 4 months now and like it better then any other utility out there for keeping my drivers up to date.

VIA bus master IDE controller
VIA serial ATA controller
VIA standard host bridge (a few of these)
VIA standard PCI to ISA bridge
VIA ultra VLINK controller
VIA CPU to AGP controller.

VIA standard host bridge From what I found this is related directly to your issue.
Get these two first and update them. Let me know if the flickering stops after the second one is installed.

I have installed what you said from driver max. Still flashing. However, there are only 2 more driver updates to install:- VIA bus master IDE controller and VIA serial ATA controller. I will do this tomorrow and report back.
Thanks a lot.

There is still what is called a Parallel Installation we can try.

I have installed all driver updates now from drivermax. Still have flashing which is worse when accessing windows live as before. Any further suggestions?
