Black screen after a few minutes

Hi everyone,

I'm getting a black screen a few minutes after the desktop appears, however this doesn't seem to happen when I boot in safe mode.


How can I fix this? I've already tried restoring the system, but I get an error since the screen went black before the process began so I was forced to reboot.

I doubt it's a GPU problem, since last night everything was working ok. I also doubt it's a monitor problem, because if it was, then the screen would be always black, no exceptions.

Maybe I'm wrong though, so help is much appreciated.

    Sounds like your computer using to much processor/ram

    This is what you do
    Go to command prompt > Msconfig > Start up
    All that stuffs start when you log into your computer
    You dont need nothing running from start up, Only Malware Byte {If installed}

    Ones you kill all of those processes
    You going to have to restart the computer
    Next
    Download CCleaner
    What this does remove the trash you don't need
    History, Cookies, Temp, Etc
    It will recover some of your hard drive space {Giga's}

    Next
    Download
    disk defragmenter
    You have in built into windows but it sucks and take longer

    If this doesn't work write back

    I have to do all this in safe mode right?
