The problem doesn't always occur, though, so I am able to use the laptop at least a little bit, and have been trying to apply fixes. It also seems like if I leave the laptop alone for a while it's more likely to work (so maybe the issue has something to do with it overheating?). I'm not that computer savvy but I have tried a lot of different fixes which I've found by searching the internet. Putting the laptop on the power saver power plan seems to reduce the frequency of the problem, so I think the issue might have something to do with power usage. I tried updating the drivers for the batteries and display adapters, but they were apparently already up to date. There is a driver for the 'base system device' which is apparently missing, I don't known if that could matter. I've gone into Event Viewer to try to identify what's going on, but that didn't provide me any information that was ultimately of any use.
Most recently I've simply refreshed Windows 10 entirely. But aside from losing all my downloaded apps, that did nothing at all. I haven't been able to find any examples of anyone with this exact problem anywhere on the internet. Similar issues, but nothing exactly like this. So now I'm lost and don't know what to do.

The 'earliest' one is the X230.
Try W7 or Linux instead.
W7 is good for another 4 years or so, and Linux well beyond that.
Check out The Boardroom for Parts, Mods and Other Services.
One related issue I did have with one of my X220 machines. After replacing screen I had an issue that the machine would lock itself (i.e. go to password lock screen) randomly. I had it configured (linux) to lock the screen when the lid was closed, and the lid closing sensor above the screen near the webcam had a hair over it, so the sensor was getting false positives for lid closure. So it's possible, depending on your settings, that you have a similar issue.
