Is there a fix or is it a hardware issue ?

Easy way to tell if its a hardware issue or a software issue is to load up the BIOS and see if the crazy flickering problem remains..

How to load into BIOS: computerhope.com/iss…htm
(in short.. turn laptop on and tap F2, DEL or F12 [depends on the laptop..] until BIOS screen appears)

As the BIOS is not Windows and therefore doesn't use any of the Windows device drivers, you can rule out it being a software issue. If the problem does not happen when in the BIOS then I would recommend reinstalling your video card drivers, doing a full virus + spyware scan in Safe Mode (worth a shot..) and as a last resort, re-installing Windows.

its a video card issue, as it runs in a low power state on battery and full power on mains, and its getting messed up

change its settings to full quality on battery power or turn off power saving mode for the video, reinstalling video is another option, but i'd turn off power saving first
