Brand new Asus Q550LF screen keeps on turning off
I recently bought the ASUS Q550LF from BestBuy, spending $1100. Now only a week in to using it, every 5-10 minutes my screen will suddenly turn off with no warning. The rest of the computer still runs fine, I know this because it still makes its normal sounds when I hit certain keys, insert/take out a flash drive, etc. The only way I've found to turn the screen back on is by:
a) closing the lid to put it to sleep, opening the lid back up, waking it up and re-logging in, or
b) holding the power button down to shut down, then reboot and start all over.
Considering this is a brand new, expensive laptop and this happens every 5 minutes or so, this is very frustrating Has anyone seen this problem before or have any suggestions?
By the way, Im running 64x bit windows 8.

Try uninstalling the video driver and reinstalling it. If it keeps doing it, you will need to send it in to get fixed.
