Windows 7: Random crashing during high-spec games

Random crashing during high-spec games

Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
OS Version: 6.1.7600.2.0.0.256.1
Locale ID: 2057
BCCode: 124
BCP1: 0000000000000000
BCP2: FFFFFA8005050038
BCP3: 0000000000000000
BCP4: 0000000000000000
OS Version: 6_1_7600
Service Pack: 0_0
Product: 256_1

When playing high-spec games, every time I play, the game will at some point, usually sooner rather than later, crash. The nature of the crash is not one I have encountered before - the monitor suddenly loses its signal and resultantly goes on standby, while the tower crashes and requires a forced restart to reboot. The above, according to windows 7, is the problem's description. It has been absolutely driving me mad trying to find a solution to this problem as my knowledge is quite basic. I assumed it was a driver issue. Any help anyone can provide would be very much appreciated. My system specs are as follows:

OS: Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Processor: AMD Phenom(tm) 8650 Triple-Core Processor
Memory (RAM): 4.00 GB
Graphics: ATI Radeon HD 4800 series (Microsoft Corporation WDDM 1.1)
Gaming Graphics: 2303 MB Total available graphics memory
Primary Hard Disk 298 GB Total

My Graphics Card driver version is 8.741.0.0 and I have DirectX 10

As I said before, any help anyone can give me would be greatly appreciated.
Many Thanks.
