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.

Crash in game! Coloured screen

Hi guys im new to this but i have only resorted to this because i have bought a brand new comp with windows 7 Pro bout 8 months ago and recently for the past months or two it has been crashing in game. solid colored screens sometimes wierd multi colored screens and sometimes i can still hear the sound for a couple of seconds. This has become a constant issue and only so far happens whilst playing League of Legends and Counterstrike also BFBC2, mostly CS and LoL. i have updated my graphics card and ran a memory test all good but still seems to happen. someone please please help me out this is soo frustrating.
