LG 29UC97C screen flickers on and off on Windows 10

I recently bought a LG 29UC97C 21:9 monitor to replace my old, 5:4 monitor. My computer is running Windows 10 and the screen did not flicker when using the old monitor. However, while I was using the new monitor, I found that the screen goes flickering on and off and lot, in random bursts. Does anyone know if it is the problem of the OS (some say that Windows is causing the issue), the problem of the monitor, the HDMI cable, or the graphics card I am using? Also, it would be nice if anyone could give me a solution.
Specs of my PC (if it helps)
Intel Core i7-4770K
Gigabyte G1 Sniper M5
Galaxy GeForce GTX 650 Ti BOOST 2GB
Windows 10 Home 64-bit

HDMI may do that.

I'm rushing out the door but try VGA for now if you can.

More later today.

DO NOT get upset here. I run into folk that install 10 and totally forget that even in 10 we get to install drivers appropriate for the PC in question. For me this is a minimum of the motherboard chipset and the GPU. Then I'm off to be sure my video settings are spot on for the display. As I don't own your GPU or display I can't tell you a step by step.
