Flash hangs screen, first reboot after that shows blank screen

A couple of times a day, my laptop screen hangs (together w/ the cursor) and forces me to reboot by pressing the button. I've noticed that EVERY time this happens I have a browser window with a flash game on, although I'm not playing the game at that moment.

"Seems like a hardware problem. Probably overheating, considering Flash can use a lot of CPU.

Please download OCCT and run the LINPACK test for a few hours. If there are errors or the computer hangs during the test, it means your PC has a hardware problem, probably related to overheating.

If that's the case then you should try to improve the air flow in your laptop: clean up the fans, make sure they are not obstructed when you're using the computer. If this doesn't work then I guess you will have to RMA it."
