    Games flickering--objects, text, shadows

    katydid

      First off:

      OS: Windows 8.1, 64 bit

      Graphics: AMD Radeon HD 8600/8700M

                      AMD Radeon HD 8650G + HD 8600/8700M Dual Graphics

       

      I'm not knowledgeable about these things, so the best that I can describe this problem is that every game I have "flickers." Objects have areas that flicker quickly, shadows (like in the main menu of Skyrim) are shaky, and text is always flickering. I've browsed similar problems and videos, but nothing looks quite the same as what's happening here.

       

      The problem started after playing Dragon Age: Origins for a few hours, and later on, I got in about 5 minutes of Civ V before I had to stop playing. Every game (Steam and non-Steam) I've opened has the same problem, but I've been trying solutions in Skyrim.

      Things I've tried:

      Updating to the newest driver versions

      Uninstalling and reinstalling the graphics driver

      Rolling back to an older version

       

      I have no idea what happened. If I let Skyrim run in-game for a few minutes, the problem will occasionally stop completely, but only for a second or two before resuming.

       

      Thanks in advance for any help! I can supply any other spec info if needed.
