    Over the past 4 months or so the computer will black screen for about 1 second them crash.
    It will some times stutter before crashing but some times it just goes straight to the black screen.

    It happens under a large variety of situations, anything from surfing the internet, playing video games, and just while it is sitting inactive.

    I have checked for dust, it is clean. Kapersky and SB Search & Destroy both came up clean. I ran a memory tester recommended by Valve, and it tested with out any errors. It is a relatively new computer.

    A last note, It may be unrelated but iTunes and Steam both have become sluggish and go unresponsive much to often.
