For a while now, I'll log in to my computer and start using it as usual and then suddenly, in the middle of my work, my screen "blacks out" and it will stop responding no matter how many times I click my mouse buttons, press "esc" or hit my power button. The screen will eventually come back on after hitting all these buttons, and I'll be back where I left off whether I'm on the internet, typing on my word processing program, etc. BUT, eventually it "blacks out" again and I have to repeat the process. I end up having to log back in each time, several times actually, to go back to my work and it's [bleep] aggravating. The screen also remains "blacked out" when I boot up my computer and the only way I know it's actually on is by looking for the little light on the side of my computer that indicates it's on. I don't think it's an electrical issue because my computer does not shut off when it "blacks out," but I don't know what this issue could be. I know it's not an electrical "short" or anything like that. I'm just grateful that I can log back on to my computer again, but it's aggravating doing it over and over again. I submitted this issue via e-mail to a computer repair person, but I thought, what the [bleep]? I'll post it at geekstogo.com. Maybe it's just an issue of making a few screen adjustments on my Control Panel and hey-- it's free! What are your ideas about what this problem might be? What do I do to fix it? Thanks in advance for your input because it's annoying as [bleep]!
@#!%& Aggravating Screen "black out" Issue-- argh!

This is NOT a duplicate reply. As I said, I tried to save my new computer system information to my profile and the profile wouldn't save my new info. Please reply to my original topic about the screen "black out" issue. I need to know what is going on with my computer. Thanks for your prompt response(s).

UPDATE 7/10/2018: I have been waiting for quite a while now for a resolution to this issue, but no one has gotten back to me. I feel that I have been more than patient. I will give you until Friday, 7/13 to address this issue of mine, which is very important to me. If I do not get any results by then, I will never visit this forum again and will warn all my friends/family through e-mail and my busy Facebook account to never have any business with geekstogo.com regarding any computer issues because the management here refuses to address them in a prompt fashion. So, this is your last chance to resolve this issue. Please get back to me ASAP! I see that this topic has gotten over 200 "views," so please don't claim that this issue was never noticed or looked at. You have no excuse.

From my point of view it is. Both topic s have the same time stamp >Posted 02 July 2018 - 03:06 PM< and the content of this post is identical to this post, all except for the following that you edited in:
This is NOT a duplicate reply.
Why you could not just go ahead and edit your profile to update the OS and system specs for future reference is beyond me.
BTW, gotta change my computer type on my profile: I've got an HP laptop, Intel CORE 15 7th Gen running on Windows 10. I use Microsoft Edge browser, but I don't know what version it is. My computer is less than 2 years old.
It's not too often that we get total strangers who demand our attention in the way that you have in your last post. I see that you do realize that we are all volunteers here and if we choose to we do not have to help you at all. I have a feeling that those 200 views are the result of people not willing to help because of the demanding behavior on your part. I personally read the following as a threat:
