Acer screen goes black every few seconds


Nov 15, 2017
The screen on my Acer (windows 8) goes black every few seconds, after googling the only suggestions I found was to change the power plan to balanced and turn off display set to 'never', which was a real struggle because the screen goes black so fast that I need to channel The Flash to be fast enough to click on anything.
