Hello Aznarel,

Firstly we need to establish if the problem is caused by the notebook's display or by it's on board graphics adapter. To do this I need you to connect an external display to the notebook. I see that the 292 has a VGA I/O port to which any VGA display can be connected.
When the notebook's screen is displayed on the external display one of two scenarios may be experienced:

  1. The problem's symptoms may manifest on the external display, indicating a problem with the notebook's on board graphics adapter. Since this problem can only be solved by replacing the notebook's motherboard, it may be more economical to buy a new one, depending on the status of the notebook's warranty.

  2. The problem's symptoms are not experienced when the screen is displayed on an external display, indicating a problem with the notebook's display. If this is the case I will suspect a malfunctioning inverter.
    Reason: When the LCD TFT display starts flickering it is a sign that the backlight is not receiving the correct current (the inverter provides the backlight with the required current).
    As opposed to a malfunctioning backlight. When a dark, faint output display is the only experienced symptom (that is; no flickering of the screen and no lockup of screen display) the LCD's backlight is at fault
    In case of scenario 2 the solution will be to take the notebook to a computer repair shop where a certified IT technician can order and replace the malfunctioning inverter.
I hope you find this information helpful in solving the problem.
Please take the time to rate this solution.
Kind regards and thanks for using the FixYa service.

Is there a yellow exclamation mark next to the video controller when you look at it in the control panel device manager. If so, right click on the affected device and select update driver software to allow Windows to search and install. Other than that, go to the Acer website and search for the specific VGA Controller driver for your laptop in their service and support pages.
