Windows 7: BSOD playing WoW and when browsing youtube

BSOD playing WoW and when browsing youtube

I have had two, recent events in which my laptop's screen turns black, then rotates between white, red, blue, green, and a gradient of grey (may not be the exact colors, I didn't record them). The first time this happened, I had World of Warcraft and Firefox open. I remember I just opened a new youtube video, when my computer made a loud constant beeping noise (can't think of how to describe it any better). After a few seconds the screen went black, and then went into the loop that I described earlier. Once I turned the computer off (holding the power button) it took a few tries to successfully boot up, what I mean by this is that I would get stuck on an initial loading screen before the windows loading screen (the bottom left corner said push F2 for more options. I pushed F2 and it just said Loading... and stayed like that for 5 minutes before I restarted the computer again).

The computer was doing fine for about a week (I stopped running video games such as World of Warcraft and DotA:2. I have been playing Scrabble and Minecraft without any troubles). But earlier tonight, I experienced this crash yet again. I was working on a Lab report with MSWORD and was going to open a youtube video sent to me, when as soon as I opened the video, the same error occurred as before, with the screen going black then to the other colors. (There as no loud noise this time when the computer did this, may be because I had my volume turned off).

If you need any other information, I'd be more then willing to try to supply it.

Best regards,
