    I was wondering if anyone know why my mac turns to a black screen randomly while browsing using Safari or Chrome? I have MBP 2010 13" model. It comes back to life and normal after about 5 seconds to 10.

    Thank you!

    If this is only an issue while running Safari and/or Chome then try:
    • Making sure both Safari and Chrome are up-to-date.
    • Make sure you're running the latest OS X and have all updates/drivers.
    • Use Firefox and see if you still get the same issue.

    Furthermore, it could also be a graphics problem dealing with Flash and/or Java. Make sure both of those are up-to-date, too.
