You may need to have your LCD cable updated. Also, when you game, do you get ghosting on the models? Also, are you running at 60Hz or 120Hz?

ive tryed running at both 60hz and 120hz , i havent seen any ghosting..

also the framerate is dropping as the blink occurs so im not sure it problem is the lcd cable ..
*UPDATE*
just to be sure i tested both 60hz & 120hz blinking is still occurs with Fps drop down to 10ish then after a few secs will go back to normal then the process will repeat its self

also i can only change the hertz by right clicking on the desktop and selecting screen resolution
cant change it in the nvidia control panel

to get the 120Hz option, you need to select the PC resolutions, and not the HD ones.

ive noticed the only games that i can play on battery without the screen flashing black then the huge fps drop is Left for dead 2 and dead space 2

will Asus be releasing a bio update or anything to fix this issue?

or are they just releasing newer models...

would be nice to unplug my ac and play a game
