So, as I said in the title my computer will crash while im playing a game. The screen will go black for a moment then a random color will pop up on to the screen. This has now been happening for a few days and is annoying to say the least. I have scoured the web looking for possible fixes and have not found anything that I can really understand. So if you have any Idea at what the cause of this is, please post. Thank you.

Defective graphics card or defective memory on the graphics card when switched to 3D Graphics mode (i.e. games).

3D mode puts more stress on the graphics card and uses more graphics memory than 2D mode.
