So, I'm having trouble whenever I try to go fullscreen or close out of fullscreen on every game I play, and I can't change most of them to windowed mode. This is fairly annoying, and it happens frequently, though it doesn't happen every time. Most of the time, I have to restart the laptop. I can put the screen down and raise it back up, and it temporarily fixes the problem until I have to close out. Either that, or it restarts the computer. I have posted a picture below of what it looks like. Any help with this is appreciated. I have updated my video drivers, also. Thanks.

Try using an external monitor. If its exhibits the same way, then its a video chipset problem that is failing due to excessive heat or hopefully a reflowing would fix the problem.
