    I got my Macbook Air refurb a few hours ago.

    Everything was going normal and sane. I closed the lid for about an hour, came back and opened the screen, nothing happened (pitch black).

    Rebooted the computer and now all I have is a flickering screen and it already made me dizzy.

    Seriously!

    Not much I guess. I just hate wasting time on reconfiguring a computer all over again!

    It won't hurt to try a PRAM reset if you have not already. That used to fix a flickering issue on my older MacBook.
    Hold Command, Option, P, and R at startup until you hear the Apple Chime at least twice.

    Did you reset it or try anything? Seriously, give it a rest and then do the two system resets before determination of defeat. I have always had excellent results with refurbished so don't give up on that even if you did get a bad one. Sorry.

    When I turned my computer this morning I realized the screen had less flickering. I called Apple and I did the reset he told me. Flickering started all over again.
