Black screen and not just CS:S

    So, when I played cs:s I got the black screen error. So I decided to restart my laptop, and research why I get this black screen on cs:s, then suddenly the Black Screen appeared when cs:s was not opened. :frown: so even if I'm not on cs:s I still got a black screen.

    Any ideas what I can do? Or what is the problem?

    maybe your video card is the problem? i had this problem with my video card a few years ago.

    Should I get a new one ? Plus my laptop also has overheating issues which is why i have a cooler as well.

    I had a problem just like this one to when I was playing css or any higher fps game my screen would turn black and be non responsive. It turns out my video card was severly overheating. I had this problem for a long time, until one day I pulled out my video card and cleaned it as much as possible. I no longer have these problems and its been a month or so since I cleaned it

    Sounds like a video card hardware and/or driver problem.

    I would go to manufacturer (Nvidia or AMD) forums and try to find if its some issue with your model of card. Other than that, it sounds like your GPU is fried/on the way to being fried
