    Hi all just grabbed myself second hand a Scan 3XS 17 inch laptop with a i7 6700HQ and GTX 960M but Iv literally just started using the system and it randomly black screens as in a black screen pops up for maybe a second at the most then the screen goes back again to how it was.

    Anyone ever come across this problem before?

    Just need to quickly decide if i need to get a refund for this laptop or if it can be fixed maybe by applying some new thermal compound

    Just a guess but maybe an intermittent ribbon cable connection to the screen. Are you using it when it happens, can you create it by moving the laptop around?
