So they sent the technician today to install the motherboard. If you have not read my video card was going bad so I had to have a new one installed. It cost me nothing to have it fixed under Lenovo's factory warranty. It is now working and is no longer flickering. I had previously stated that I was selling this laptop on criagslist but turns out I will be keeping it for a long time now. Sorry macbooks you will be left alone in the corner for right now (or until your sold).
