Screen flickering, was told it is driver conflict or software issue?

Laptop screen flickering? - YouTube <-- Cellphone vid of the screen flicker

So a year or so ago I had to send my laptop off to Staples Business Depot where I got it to have my screen fixed. It would randomly start flickering black and loseing picture before coming back. Sometimes It wouldnt come back for a few minutes or at all until shutdown.

After staples was done looking at it they just backed up and reset my laptop. This is what was said:

"Comprehensive hardware test performed. No trouble found with testing.

Video issue was only recreated inside Windows & tested ok outside of Windows. May have been a driver conflict / software incompatibility

A complementary factory re-installation was completed to ensure the system is performing to manufacturer design.

Repair completed and final testing passed. External cleaning performed. Returning to store for Customer pick-up"

And honestly that fixed it for the time being but now the issue is starting again. Same thing, has only happened once or twice but now I have no warrenty left to have it repaired.

Thus far it has only happened while I am on my desktop or using google chrome. It hasnt happened while playing any games yet but it did previously when the issue first started.

Laptop is an Asus X73S
Intel i7 @ 2.2GHz
Nvidia 610m (all drivers up to date)
8gb RAM
One 290GB hdd, one 380GB hdd.

Ive had a few windows updates the last few days that have installed on shutdown. The issue first started on May 21st and I noticed it again today May 23rd which is why I came here for help.

Just started to have another issue.

Got rid of corrupt files and such and cleaned up my files with the help of windows Tech, couldnt get the update to install still and they wanted 150$ to continue helping me lol

I followed the steps to uninstall the updates you recommended but when I go to view installed updates it says none are installed?
