Windows 7: Multiple Crashes while watching videos/playing any games

Multiple Crashes while watching videos/playing any games

Hello, recently (past 3 months), My computer has been freezing and I believe this is a graphics card problem. When it freezes, if I am watching a video or playing a game, the sound I am currently listening to will become "electronic like". This usually occurs anywhere from 2-10 mins then it will continue playing. Sometimes, it is will not continue and I will have to Restart my laptop by holding the power button. I should also add that twice I have gotten the BSOD.
I should also add that, this regularly occurs when watching Netflix or playing browser games while talking on skype.
I am not very good with computers, but would like all the help I could get.
