    Hi we have a Dell Inspirion about 1.5 years old. Here is the Sysinfo.
    Tech Support Guy System Info Utility version
    OS Version: Microsoft Windows 10 Home, 64 bit
    Processor: Intel(R) Celeron(R) CPU N3050 @ 1.60GHz, Intel64 Family 6 Model 76 Stepping 3
    Processor Count: 2
    RAM: 4007 Mb
    Graphics Card: Intel(R) HD Graphics, 1024 Mb
    Hard Drives: C: 452 GB (405 GB Free);
    Motherboard: Dell Inc., 0787MR
    Antivirus: Windows Defender, Disabled

    Periodically, usually overnight the screen will go black. I have it hooked up to another monitor so i use 2 screens. When this happens I cannot wake it up, the only solution is to reboot it. I checked Control panel and it appears sleep mode is turned off. I have attached a screen shot of my settings.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Change the screen settings to never as well and see if it freezes. If it does, it might be an overheating issue or a program causing it to lock.
