I have the very latest bios, Video and chipset drivers available from Acer/NVidia but this hasnt helped my issue.
When first booting to desktop its at its worst, screen flickers pretty often but settles down a little after a minute ( but never stops completely)

Doesnt seem to happen in game. 
Laptop is only a few weeks old.

Any ideas?

    You can reset the battery. Here is how: https://us.answers.acer.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/34843/~/acer-internal-battery-reset

    If it doesn't help, then I suggest you to update the BIOS to latest version. You can download from here: https://www.acer.com/ac/en/GB/content/support-product/6965?b=1

    The latest version is 1.12 and can be found under BIOS/Firmware.
