One thing you can try is (from Writer) go into "Tools" | "Options...", expand the "LibreOffice" tree (if not already expanded), and then click on "View". In the "Options - LibreOffice - View" screen, near the top right, look for the checkbox for "Use hardware acceleration". Try changing that and see how your system behaves.

I am running version 4.0.3 under Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 (64-bit), and I had unchecked "Use hardware acceleration" because when I type in the comments the whole comments area flickers, but it didn't make any difference for me. But it may help you if you are seeing flicker while typing in the body of your documents.
