Randomly while gaming (every 10-30 minutes or so) ny laptop screen will shut off. It is only the display, as if someone just unplugged the monitor in any other PC (music still plays, if I press interaction keys in my game it responds accordingly, according to sound at least., my internet still works, etc.) My pc doesn't experience extreme temps ever, especially not high when this tends to happen, and the only way I can (temporarily) fix it is to shut the laptop for a few seconds and opening it back up, usually takes a few tries. It does NOT happen while I have an external display hooked up via hdmi (or at least my 2 hours of game time with that setup didn't suffer this) If I cant find a fix, and I've searched for an answer to this for ~8 months now, I plan to buy a monitor. Any help would be appreciated
