I had this same problem a few weeks ago, try reinstalling your graphics card drivers with the most current update for them, and see if that helps. Thats what i did and havent had a problem with it since.

Nvidia Driver Site

Ati Driver Site
https://support.ati.com/ics/support/...ge&folderID=27

If you have an ATI video card, I suggest you install the 6.3 Cataylst drivers. Several people have had some issues with the newer 6.4 drivers. Basically all you have to do is uninstall your old drivers either from hardware manager or the add/remove program list, download new drivers and install. I've read up on the ATI website that you have to delete some registry keys after uinstalling the old drivers to totally get rid of the old driver set, then reinstall new drivers. Anyways hope it helps!

i think this is when u can say ur computer "crashed". it happens when the mobo, cpu, ram , sometimes the video card are not stable or bad quality.
