Windows 7: Randomly crashing at random intervals.

Randomly crashing at random intervals.

Hey guys,

A few weeks ago my computer starting experiencing a few crashes. These initially only took place when playing a computer game such as World of Warcraft. The crashes intially caused the monitor to go black losing connection, however the sound loops for about 10 - 15 seconds before finally stopping.

However in the last few weeks, the problem seems to have grown since it is crashing simply when the browser is open on such sites as youtube. The time between the crashes has also become more frequent.

OS: Windows 7 Home Premium x64 bit (Originally installed) OEM
Display driver: Nvidia GeForce GTX 465
RAM: 4GB

BSOD: OS Version: 6.1.7601.2.1.0.768.3

Any information on how to fix this problem or just what is causing it would be incredibly appreciated.
