Random screen black out

 polly -
Hello, I have a HP dv6700. the screen recently started blacking out at random times. I can partially close the lid and reopen it and it comes back on. Closing the lid makes the computer sleep. Can anyone suggests a fix. i have already reformatted/reinstalled os (vista) from factory discs, upgraded all drivers, and read through most of the posts on this site. I do not have to reboot each time, just slightly shut the lid. I mostly have the my computer plugged in, so its not running off the battery. I did recently pull the battery out to check it for recall info, it was not one of the batteries involved.

Dear Polly,

Please consider checking whether you need to have your graphic card driver updated to get the problem fixed.

Thank you.
I did that and it didnt make any difference. Also it doesnt seem to have any pattern to it. blacked out while typing this message
