any news about this issue?
I have a Toshiba C660D (same E350 / HD 6310), which suffers from the same issue. It is very random, and I failed to reproduce it. Some users around the internet reported good results with the latest Catalyst (or "Amd Vision Engine Control Centre") drivers (latest at the time being v12.4). Can anyone confirm this?
Also, does anyone know how to reproduce this? I tried to set the core/mem speeds, but they seem to be locked (RivaTuner, MSI Overdrive, etc. couldn't change the values), thus I also couldn't fix the values (which may be a solution as pointed out by some people). Turning on/off Powerplay doesn't change much, according to GPU-Z the values still change between high and low, although the high/low values are different depending on Powerplay being on/off.

Hey Svega and all. Here is an update for my post on 4/11/12. Since installing that AMD update/replacement for Catalyst Control Centre as I detailed I have not experienced the flicker
Also I keep my Windows 7 (64 bit) fully up to date with Microsoft updates, so maybe this helped too. Nick

Thanks Nick, much appreciated
What I'm worried about is what Aquablue25 posted. He said that turning off PowerPlay and installing the newest drivers didn't entirely solve the issue in his case. Since I'm unable to reproduce the issue, and also it's very random (sometimes it doesn't appear for a week or so), I can't be sure what to expect. All I can do is install the newest drivers and keep looking for the issue long-term..

Since updating my drivers last December (via the option within the Catalyst Control Center--the update wasn't available via Lenovo System Update), I've never had the flickering problem recur.
