compaq laptop CQ50 screen goes black

Hp compaq presario / Cq50-215nr

Specs: Windows Vista
My compaq presario CQ50's screen keeps suddenly going black (or any other random solid color) when I'm in the middle of using the laptop. There isnt an error message, nothing special happens before hand, it just suddenly goes black. The computer is still on but the screen is out (I have hooked up the computer to a tv to see if its just the actual laptop screen- but the tv will black out when the laptop's screen blacks out)

I restored the laptop completely and it seemed to be working fine for a couple of days. Then the screen resolution started changing back and forth on its own and a window came up from windows telling me that something wasnt working properly and gave me the solution of installing HP updates (79 of them)

After I installed the updates the screen started going black again. I can boot up the laptop, I can use it for a few minutes but then the screen will black out mid session.

Also the touch pad for the mouse is now not responding at all and the up and down arrows aren't working

Please help!

I have a MLT 1516 ThinkPad and tried to connect to an external monitor. Not only I can not connect, I no longer have access to my computer since the screen is solid light blue color. How can I access my screen again? Please help. Thanks
