My 2017 Samsung Windows 10 laptop computer went to black, and as far as I can tell, shut itself down - although to be honest, I'm not sure that it shut down or was just hung.  I was able to reboot it, and here I am but... I was working on stuff and it was uber inconvenient, plus... worried that it's a THING that will take me down again and again if I don't figure it out.

I read a bunch of trouble-shooting sites online, but none of the reasons seemed to "fit" with what I'm doing.  Not installing, no external display, no extra hardware, no recent updates (to my knowledge), no weird behavior before or after.  Went into Safe Mode, but couldn't figure out what I was looking for.  

Anyway, long and short, I had maybe 10 tabs open in Chrome, was drafting a personal bio statement in Word, and then *POOF* black.  I don't run anything more taxing than the occasional Netflix show.  

Any suggestions?

      Hello,i've recently encountered a problem with starting my Laptop(lenovo Ideapad100).2 days ago,it suddenly froze while i was watching a video so i ended up doing a hard reset.Now,its permanently stuck in a black screen after it tries to run automatic repair.I have tried plenty of the solutions suggested by other people such as hard-resetting it 3 times(apparently this is a very common solution but it
      wont trigger the menu for me) before it shows the lenovo logo but this doesnt help at all since it wont let me access any safe booting menu of the sort.
      I cant access Bios or anything.I have already tried pressing all the keys during the normal start before it goes into black screen mode but none of them trigger any sort of menu.I also installed and mounted a windows 10 installer on my USB but the laptop just ignores it and wont let me choose any option either.
      I'm quite desperate since i have some important files in this laptop.Sorry for my awful english and thanks in advance.
