Display driver or virus?

Ummmm, I have recently come accross a problem (started bout an hour ago)
My screen turns it self off (giving me noticethat it s Going to sleep)
And then it turns back on with black screen. after about 5 minutes it will reload my desktop.

This is getting on my nerves...(my dad said that it happened to him once but with a browser)

I and using Iexplorer as I think it might be chrome(my usual)

But all suggestions are welcome
Thanks
Rangi.


EDIT: it is not my browser cuz it just happened again !!! HELP ME !

Oh, I have also checked my display driver, monitor settings etc in the device manager but apparently they are in good working order...I have had MS security essentials running for the past hour to see if I have a virus :)

Update your display drivers
What graphic card do you have?

For Nvidia cards Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers

Never update from device manager, always update from the card manufacturer's webiste
