Windows 7: While playing video games my computer screen turns black or blank

While playing video games my computer screen turns black or blank

So I ve encounterd this issue while im playing video games (mostly Tera), in the middle of the game the computer screen goes black (sometemies even other colors), but my computer is still running, although my Hard drive indicator isnt blinking.
I have a:
Intel core i5 3570k, Asus gtx 770, 8 gb of ram, 1TB HDD, 650W Psu,
I dont think its because of overheating, because when i look up the temperatures the max on my gpu is 75 on full load what is fine for the 770, and my cpu is on full load at about 54 max.
So could it be a software problem or my HDD is not working properly.
If anyone could reply i would be thankful.
Thank you!:)

Do you ever get a Blue screen when your computer has this problem?
