Omen screen darkens during games

HP Omen 17-an0xx

I got this laptop about 4 months ago and its been working fine except that when I play a game Ex: Fortnite or tf2 or other fps (mainly fortnite) the game works fine until a few minutes in the game when the screen completely darkens and I can't interact with it, but the sounds and whatever aplication was on was still going on such as a youtube video. The only way I found that will fix it temporarely is by holding down the power button. Once I get back on everything works as if nothimg hapened, but then I play Fortnite and a couple minutes in it does the samething, over and over and over again.

Hi

 

I can't locate your specific product using 17-an0xx.

 

Go to your PC's HP support site to check for a newer graphics driver.

 

Download Furmark. Run a GPU stress test. You may be able to see high GPU temps or dropped frame rates before the graphics card chokes.

 

Run HP boot time UEFI Diagnostics.

Hi

The game you are playing may require more processing power and might go into dim display mode if played on battery .

 

Pls cross check this requirejnet and try playing the game when AC adaptor plugged in.

 

Hope this Helps
