What is your video card?
For example, Gigabyte GTX 670

Also, do you have enough power going into the card? Is the problem happening during your games only or randomly?

it happens during playing games a lot.. i don't know what card it is.. im using windows 7 not good with computers.. but this problem just started like two weeks ago and happens more often now.. if i bring it to the computer store they will try and sell me everything new...

re-install windows and then download the latest driver from the manufacturer of the cards website.

If you don't even know what video card you bought a couple months ago, well that's a problem.

the other thing that i think people would like to rule out if possible is if its a higher end gpu, what psu model do you have.

Use GPUZ to find out what GPU you have. However, I'd bet one of three things are happening:

1. Overheating GPU
2. Unstable GPU (GPU is defective)
3. Unstable GPU due to bad PSU
