    Is the battery ever dead after the black screen or does it come back on with full battery or the same amount of battery as before.

    The other thing is is the computer still on when the black screen occurs or do you have to power up again?

    Have you tried taking out the battery completely pressing the power button for 30 second and then replacing the battery?.
    That's just in case the PC turn off to a black screen.
