And yes, I've already tried the adaptive brightness, not the issue. It just happened out of nowhere, maybe I pressed the wrong selection of keys, but all I remember is that it just paused for a sec, after that it made this old school sounding computer noise (think the noise AOL use to make when it would be online), and then it just went black. I'm currently running Malwarebytes, so it may have been just a virus, but I'll have to see the results after I come back from my night class at 10.
