Hello,

My laptop has recently started to display the dreaded black screen of death. Sometimes it is during bootup, sometimes, during in the middle of a session. How do i fix it? thanks

Could be heating issue. Make sure you clean the heatsink and fan first, then retry.
Also, you might need to do a repair-install of the OS again, because corrupted files can be caused by random resets/restarts.
You could also check temps using Hardware Monitor and check memory with Memtest.
