I have an Acer Aspire 5742G latop with Ubuntu 12.04.5 LTS. Firstly I had a problem with the brightness (i couldn't change it) but afer I changed
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash acpi_osi=Linux" the brightness problem solved.

But now when I change the brightness by pressing Fn + left arrow/right arrow, all the windows i have open starts flickering and every time I press any button it flickers again.


Problem Solved!

After Changing brightness screen stops flickering if I press Alt + SysRq + r.
