So I've manager to pinpoint a little bit more of the issue:


  • - If I keep the resolution of the screens to 1680x1050 (native for the monitor and scaling for the TV), the Black Screen doesn't occur.

    - If I setup the resolution to 1920x1080 (Native fothe TV and scaling for the monitor), the Blak Screen comes up after about 12/15 min of a Youtube video in full screen without touching the mouse or the keyboard.
Once the issue occurs, after insisting pressing combos such as CTRL+ALT+DEL, CTRL+SHIFT+ESC, WIN+P, WIN+DOWN etc. etc, the Windows 10 login Screen eventually appear and I can log on the PC.

Then I can see that Error code 43 is displayed in the device manager on my Video card (Nvidia 754 GTX) and I need to restart the computer to have it back as nothing happened...

I'll try to get another video card from work to check if it happened with other card or if mine is simply faulty.

I got a new HP notebook running windows 10, a month old. I got random black screen only when browsing. So when black screen occurs, I just press ALT+F4 to close the browser and then it will go back to the normal screen. I tried other browser, safari, firefox, explorer, the same. It will just go back to black screen. So I will turn off the laptop, take the batt off and then it's fixed. After a few hours, I end up doing the same process again.

Tried the steps mentioned above, not helping.

I will keep an eye on this thread, hoping to have a permanent solution. Thank you guys,

My solution: Changed display refresh rate from 29p to 30p.

Using HDMI from my laptop to a large Samsung TV and certain websites in Chrome would have the screen go black for a few seconds. Tried all the common things like cables, inputs, turning off hardware acceleration, and drivers. I found one website that would trigger this every time I got to the footer http://www.redrc.net/ and from the code the only thing I can think that was causing was an iframe for the FB/Twitter buttons.
