Black Screen Crash in games, no BSOD.

Hi there, over the last few months my laptop has been frequently crashing when playing games such as Counter Strike: Source, Team Fortress 2, Starcraft 2, as well as others. I'm not exactly sure what is wrong with my computer since it should be capable of handling all of these programs.

It is Windows 7 Home Premium 64.
It is OEM.
The computer and OS Instillation are a bit over a year old.

Should this fully fix the issue?

Will cleaning the vent most likely suffice? If not, is there any way to clean the fan without disassembling the computer?

There is one thing that I forgot to mention that makes me think it may not be the fans.

It unusually happens on certain maps in games, or when specific events occur.
