Frequent BSOD when starting up and playing games

Hello, I've just recently experienced BOSD (about a week) and I'm not sure what to do, so usually I just restart my computer. It first occured when I was playing the Sims3, then it also showed up when I started my laptop but not always. Sometimes it didn't happen at all. Please help me solve this. Thank you.
