Screen goes blank and computer locks up

I have a model P205D-S7438 that will randomly go blank and none of the buttons will work. (Num. lock, caps lock, etc) This lap top is less than a year old. It has been doing this since I've had it. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Hi I have the same problem with my satelite pro a300, and I´m in doubt which one of the bios versions I should choose.

 

Thanks in advance
