SAGER NP8173 - Black screen during gaming issue

Clevo Forum and Sager Forum - forum.notebookreview.com
I've been having my computer for a while since Fall 2016. It's been going well for me and all but I am starting to identify issues during gaming sessions lately.

first thing is with Dishonored 2. I am able to run the game fine and all, and I never had issues for a while (except it stutters like crazy in some levels but that is the game itself from what I read on reviews). Then things started showing issues lately. When I start up Dishonored 2, attempting to change settings or start playing, my screen goes black (before this happens, I see weird chopped colors for a second). I minimize it and I can't see the game anymore, but its still active since I can hear the sounds still playing on the game. I also tried this with Overwatch and DOTA 2, and they are doing the same thing as well but its a 50/50 chance it happens or not.

My Laptop temperature is fine, the only heat build up is with Dishonored 2, but that is only when playing in long sessions. My graphics card is updated but the problem persist.

Does anyone know whats going on? Could this be some power issue?

NOTE: my computer specs is on my signature below
