when I draw or do anything to edit the image the work area (not the tool bars) will flash to black, then to normal, then the checkered pattern fills the entire screen. Is there anyway to stop this?

Windows 8? If so, that's a known Windows 8 bug. We're working with all the involved parties to get the various drivers and OS components fixed. Temporarily you can set the GPU mode to Basic, and that usually stops or minimizes it.
