This actually has happened to me a two times now, totally at random times and always when NOT gaming. Only since I installed the 12.11 drivers though. Interesting note, it happens on my primary monitor yet my second monitor is fine.

This is a WIDELY reported issue with AMD cards. Just google "AMD screen flickering" and such like.

Interestingly my MSI R7970 used to it about once every 10 minutes on average completely at random, only on the desktop and never in games. But then I got it replaced and my new one has only done it once in the past week.

Check your input cables by switching around your monitors' cables. If the second screen gets the same problem, then it's an inexpensive fix biggrin.gif

Happened to me before on a different GPU and just switching the cable connected to the GPU worked for me.
