Question about Sharp PC UM10 (PC-UM10M) PC Notebook
My daughter's Sharp (notebook) PC-UM10 screen goes blank (black) for no reason, while she works on it. She then has to close screen and wait a few minutes before it returns. This problem is intermittent and sporadic. any solutions
Check to see if the notebook feels hot. If so, its thermal shutdown. Look for blocked vents and clear them. Investing in a notebook chiller ( a usb powered device that supplies air to cool down a hot laptop) may be way to go. Most department stores sell notebook chillers for under $30.

The thing to do is analyze IF the problem is the machine is going to sleep OR just the monitor portion.
AS A TEST connect an external monitor and see if it winks out as well.
IF IT doesn't then either the backlight power supply is failing OR the monitor power saving setting is corrupt.
ALSO verify that the power cord is not intermittently disconnecting (common problem) as this can cause the screen to be shut down on some setups.
