Sudden black screen on Elementary


Hi everyone,

I tried to install Elementary Freya and everything was good, though suddenly while using my laptop I get a black screen. I cannot use the mouse nor the keyboard. When I press the power button, to put the computer in sleep mode, and the open it again, I can see the desktop but cannot do anything.
I tried to use Mint 17.1 and then reinstalled Elementary again but I keep getting the same problem.
I use Linux next to windows 8.1

Thanks in advance, I would appreciate any help

No, this actually does nothing when the screen is working.

It seems that the problem occurs after I open a browser

Your dmesg is from a Ubuntu 14.04 LTS machine. (???)

But as I said I face this problem in Linux Mint as well.
However, I formatted windows and installed Elementary alone and it works well now.
