Hi,

So recently after downloading new Windows and graphic card updates, my computer has been bugging out.. As said on the title, the screen flickers for a quick second and just goes completely black. The power button is on. I tried to scan the hard disk but the most the computer runs until its black-out is thirty minutes... The computer is around 4 years old and it did crash from time to time before today, is there anyway to fix this problem or should I consider buying a new one?

Thank you
