Hi Kevin, My daughter has the same problem with her laptop, do you find that when you move the screen slowly back and forth it either stops or gets worse ? You will need to take your laptop in to an HP dealer and let them have a look at it. Regards :)
On a 3 month old laptop don't even bother finding out why just get it back to get fixed under warranty. The flickering can be from several things but unless it has been damaged there is no way you should have any problems even small ones with that new a laptop.
The flickering can be a bad connector or power problem which you might see on a 3-5 year old tired laptop but definitely not acceptable on a new one.
Okay, in order to isolate the issue, I recommend you to update the graphic card drivers and I also suggest you to check the same in BIOS and with external monitor. If you see the screen flickering in BIOS, you have to contact HP and they will arrange for free mail in service.
I have an Acer 5920G that's only 3 months old and it's screen started flickering. Updating or rolling back the graphics card driver made no difference. I then updated the Chipset driver from the Acer website. It hasn't flickered since! The graphics info has to pass through the chipset so I assume the driver wasn't up to the job.
I am sure that the issue is related to the cable that connects to the LCD Display or the LCD Backlight.
There should be some connection shortage because of which the LCD flickers few times as stated by dan231.
I Recommend you to get the Notebook examined as soon as possible before something really goes wrong...
