Windows 8 crash while playing games

Does anyone know how to stop Windows 8 from crashing while I play video games? It always happens and I don't know how to fix it, I think it's my laptop or Windows 8. Here are my laptop specs:

Windows 8

Processor: AMD A8-4500M APU with Radeon(tm) HD Graphics 1.90 GHz

Installed memory (RAM): 8.00 (7.46 GB usable)

System type: 64-bit Operating System, x64-based processor

My laptop is an HP (Hewlett-Packard) ENVY m6

My e-mail is if you would like to e-mail me some help instead of commenting.

Thank you for your time!

P.S: I can run games on high graphics and not lag, but everytime I do so every 5-15 minutes Windows 8 prompts me with an error saying: Your PC has encountered a problem! We are getting info and we will restart right after it.

  1. Please upload one of your minidumps somewhere and post a link here. Just grab the latest one in your C:\Windows\minidump folder.
  2. I can't seem to upload one...

    EDIT: Do you mind sending me your e-mail so I could do so? That's the only way I know how to.
