my laptop [sony]which is 2 years old starts up no problem but after a while my screen starts to flicker and goes black as if someone turned off a light.

Sounds like backlight or invertor failing behind the screen

Do you have a place where you can plug in a standard monitor?

If so try that, if it works ok, that your problem is as Fruitbat says.

Easy test for backlight or inverter trouble. Shine a torch on the screen when it fails, the normal screen image should be visible. It's usually the inverter that plays up.
