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.

When it flickers, can you still see the text when the screen goes dark?
May have to use a bright flashlight set right on the display to see
the text on the screen beside where the light sits.
That will tell you if it's the backlight.

You can also look at a grazing angle into one of the edges to see if the
backlight is flickering when the display does.
When it's cold, does it start with a slight pinkish color? That can be
a sign of backlight going bad.
Anything interesting happen when you flex the cable by moving the screen?

I'm not saying it's impossible, but I've never seen software cause
consistent screen flicker. And if the vga port doesn't flicker, sw is
even less likely the problem.

If you bet the odds, you'd bet on a bad display cable.
Won't hurt to try replugging it.

If that doesn't help, then your monitor may be dying....
