    Laptop Screen goes black and alt-tabs randomly

    Thanks paul for trying to but there are 2 differences between me and this guy.

    1. I have an 144 hz screen and its only option available.

    2. I can freely alt-tab by my own with no problem. My Black screen and alt-tabing of the game happens randomly.
