Question about Computers & Internet
I have seen the same problem with a Dell computer that was caused by the driver for the touch pad. Suggest you go to the vendor web site and see if they have a new driver. If you have the latest go to an older driver, sometimes a new driver may have a bug.

Sounds like it could be a virus. Or, a heat buildup problem - are all fans inside machine working? Is the fan inside the power supply operating? Was there any work done inside the computer recently?
If the hdw is all ok, go out and buy yourself a copy of Norton Internet Security 2009 - 1 user lic - $49.99 @ Staples. Do *not* buy any earlier vers. of this software! Install, update it, run computer computer scan - probably will find/remove some/many viruses.
If this helps, please take the time to rate my response to you.
Thanks and good luck.

Hi...I have had the same problem with my A210 laptop as well over the last year.The problem is sporadic and it would just happen out of the blue.My daughter has the same laptop and the same problem.The screen would go blank ,but you could tell the computer was still functioning somewhat in the background.The only way to fix it was to reboot and if you were working on anything it was lost.I also recently had another similar problem.I had the laptop set to go to sleep when i shut the lid.This worked great for a year or so.When i opened the lid the screen would come back on and i could continue using the computer where i left off.But recently when i opened the lid the screen would come back on for a few seconds then go blank ,just like it did as described in the first problem above.Not sure why as i had not changed any settings on my computer.It happened every time i closed the lid then opened it.A pain as had to reboot to get it back.Here is the fix my friend discovered.Click on the ATI icon in the taskbar and open up the CATALYST CONTROL CENTER.Make sure the advanced view is selected.Now choose "display options".Put a dot in "Detect whenever catalyst control center is opened",and leave the other 2 spots unchecked.( I had a dot in these 2 places ). Now apply the changes and close it out. I have had no problems since doing this with the screen going blank.Not sure why this worked ,other then the computer was getting confused along the way and shut off the screen.Just be aware that if you hook your laptop to a TV you will have to revisit the ATI setting and change them back.....Hope this helps...Dan
