    I'm assuming your real name is Nick Collins-36 or LeRoy Butler?  Or is it Sam Shields?  If it's Sam Shields, then it's perfectly normal to see black flickering lines on your computer screen after you've had a concussion.  Smiley Wink

     

    Seriously though, have you tried updating your driver from Device Manager?  I don't have your computer model so maybe someone else can give you some ideas.  You can also try to uninstall/delete your graphics driver and let Windows automatically download and install the driver it wants.

    Edit: I probably wouldn't worry too much about it because now that I think of it, I get black flickering lines when I first start some games on my desktop too.

    i installed the latest geforce driver again and as of right now the problem seems to have gone away ill keep you updated. also like i said before it only happens on like 1 or 2 games out of 10

    Ok.  Sounds good. Check the Acer Care Center app on your computer for BIOS update.  It's not a big deal to update your BIOS.  You can do it through Acer Care Center app.

     

     They didn't post those BIOS updates because they were bored and had nothing better to do.  Smiley Happy
