Graphics driver failed to recover

Hello,
I was playing guild wars (A pc game) when my screen started doing strange things - the display had alot of angular, multicoloured triangles. after that, it went to a blue screen with a message along the lines of 'graphics driver failed to recover' and something about 'crash dump.'

Then it turned itself off, and displays a white screen whenever i attempt to turn it back on.

my card is a nvidia geforce 8400, and this is a laptop.

thanks
