Default Black Screen and freezes

Things can be running normally then my courser will freeze. At first I thought my mouse needed new batteries, but then I get a black screen or sometimes a white screen. After about a minute things go back to normal. I checked for the latest Nvidia Driver and the newest was today so I installed that, but still have the problem. Can't say for sure but this problem started about the same time when the latest fairly large Windows 10 update came about.

It could be the GPU card, or maybe screen at times.

This looks like a bug after updating Windows. Maybe Windows had misconfigured your display. It happens sometimes.

I noticed that my Nvidia Driver needed updating so now I'll wait and see if that was the problem. A Windows Update earlier this year did mess up the computer with very similar symptoms.

I don't when you did this but you have ten days to revert to a previous Windows build. If you revert and all is well then you know it was that build that caused the problem. Build 1803 is causing a lot of problems with different computers. If you are over ten days then Windows automatically deletes the files for the previous build and you cannot revert.
