If there any way to show us what you mean.by black screen flash.

What happens when you see the flash.

could be a graphics-card related process. Regardless of cause, you might be able to trap it by:
1) open task-manager,
2) display processes and sort by %CPU
3) position mouse over the second process*
4) When screen goes black, click mouse (once).
5) When screen returns, look for blue-highlighted process
- there's a reasonable chance that screen black-out is related to that process.

All so try looking in your event viewer if you don't have it disabled.

Hope it helps!

After 30. sec you can see that black flash I was talking about. It maybe about graphics card or graphic cards' drivers cause that, because as you can see, my power indicator turns to red when black flash appears which means discrete GPU is active at that moment. But I also tried this; uninstalled both Intel and Nvidia drivers in order to see what will happen. It had no effect, even if there aren't any GPU drivers, that black flash still appears. I don't know what cause to this.
