Fix for flashing horizontal lines on AMD Fusion laptops Part 2

However, that fix didn't really solve the problem. But now i think i've cracked it. Not a proper fix but more of a workaround.
You need to use AMD Catalyst 12.4 WHQL driver. You can grab it on TechPowerUp webpage. I don't know what AMD did for AMD Fusion chipsets to go crazy with any newer drivers but for me, Cat 12.4 WHQL doesn't cause these annoying horizontal flashing lines anymore under same conditions where it would start to artifact like crazy with any other driver.
Just properly (and fully) uninstall AMD Catalyst drivers, reboot system, install Catalyst 12.4 WHQL and that should be it.
It's a bit annoying if you're a driver freak like me and want to be always fully up to date. Hopefully AMD will properly fix this because this bug is really crazy one. And i've seen it on several different laptops where only thing in common was the AMD E-450 APU.
I also think it would be smart if every user with this issue fill up the problem report here:
This way, if there are enough reports of this issue, they'll do something about it...
