    Intel HD Graphics Problem, Screen Flashes Black


      I have a problem. Many times, mostly when I play a video fullscreen or a game, the screen flashes black for a second and then back to normal.

      This may happen 3 or 4 times in a row. I've seen a similar discussion in the forum but i dont think it applies to my situation. This happens both with the HDMI connection and the regular. I would really appreciate your help.
