computer crashes to solid colored screen

Hello, i have just recently got this new computer with windows 7 on it.
I am a gamer, and i have previously had NO problems with any games. UNTIL NOW. Recently when i'm playing my various games my computer crashes to a solid colored screen. (i can still hear sounds from the game for a few more seconds after the solid colored screen comes up) But i can not figure out any reason to why this is happening...
Anyone have any ideas or ways of fixing this??

Thanks

If you have an NVidia graphics card, you should check http://www.sevenforums.com/graphic-cards/602-latest-nvidia-forceware-video-drivers-windows-7-a.html
If you have an ATI graphics card, your shoudl check http://www.sevenforums.com/graphic-cards/1810-latest-ati-catalyst-driver-windows-7-a.html
In both cases, you have to uninstall your current driver from Control Panel and install the new one.
