basically what happens is I will use my laptop for a few hours and eventually the screen will flash black and sometimes the resolution changes. Sometimes it will flash back on and work for a bit longer but most of the time it goes black but keeps running and I have to turn it off. Any way to fix this?
Edit: also sometimes after the screen comes back on I can't open any applications

To help figure it out I'd like you to post a couple of reports to help us know what we're dealing with. Please use our system specs tool http://static.techguy.org/download/SysInfo.exe.

Please download Speccy https://www.piriform.com/speccy/download/standard. Speccy is a free diagnostic tool that shows the specs of your computer and information that could help determine a problem. When it finishes please click the file button, click Publish Snapshot, the click Copy to Clipboard. Return here and paste the link and post the new message.
