My computer just started to act weird. I didn't know to put it in words so I took a picture of it.

Pretty much randomly, out of the blue my laptop did that last night. Now everytime I turn my laptop on, I'll use it for 4 minutes, before it happens again. I tried some system restores with no luck. The one time I turned it on and did nothing, it actually stayed on with out a problem. I thought it was a hardware problem at first. However I have a Linux OS on my laptop (I almost never use it) and over the last 24 hours I've started using it a lot and I've had no problems. So I don't know what to make of all this. If anyone needs any particular information just let me know. Also it seems to crash pretty hard anytime I use Chrome.

Basic information: Window 7, Gateway NV Series

Your video card is dying. If the lap top is under warranty then send it back to where you got it from and ask for repairs.
