    Have you checked at which refresh rate the monitor is set? Just saying to get ideas come by
    As for the HDMI revision of the cable it should be written on the body of the cable itself

    the refresh rate is at 60hz and res at 1920x1080 hd,sd if we set it to pc 1920x1080 at 30hz it stops flickering but the refresh rate is to low for games.

    anyway of setting it higher than 60? Most monitors support 75 or higher (might have to untic a certain OS selection for you to be able to see it). For gaming you may want to disable vsync- warning certain games you will notice graphical tearing in the middle of the screen on the horizontal plane. 60Hz Refresh causes headaches, 75 or higher doesnt
