A while back I began having the problem that after gaming for a while, my computer would do what is listed in the title and I would have to turn it off and on again with the power button to get back to what I was doing.
More recently, it began happening that I had to turn on my computer twice: First a cold boot, resulting in this black screen, and then quickly off and on again to have it be functional. It would still exhibit the blackscreening afterward, while being used (first for gaming, then for anything after a given time period.)
Now, the black screen crash has been happening so frequently that I haven't been able to accomplish any functions: after I turn it on, off, and then on again, I can have enough time to get to desktop before it stops.
Before, I was running MSI Afterburner to see if it was a temperature problem. Nothing exceeded about 40C, so that's obviously not the problem. I just don't know what is, and I'd really hate to have a bricked computer.
