Hi troglor,

Welcome to the Forum.

Others experiencing these kinds of symptoms have resolved it by updating the drivers for their Graphics Card or chipset. Have you tried doing that yet?

I think you have a battery capacity problem. When was the last time the battery had a full discharge <20% capacity. Do you keep the battery charger power plug connected continually?
