  1. black screen


    So I have this Windows 10 laptop, which is running slow but without errors.

    Occasionally, the screen would just turn black, without any indication before that.
    I see the power light still on, but nothing happens when you click on shutdown/restart buttons.

    Wait some minutes, press those same buttons, and Windows restarts.
    Normal startup ...

    I thought the GPU was failing, but it can be anything.

    What is the first thing to check here, Windows Events ? Then what ?

    :)
