Welcome to BC, hoodibaba

Well, First we need to know some information like make, model of computer and system specs like processor, Ram, video card etc actually as much as you can get us. Also Does this happen no matter what you do? It is important that you send how much RAM you have the most common cause of this is a problem with RAM or not enough.

You'll want to check all the system fans and especially the video card fan (if there is one). Make sure the computer is free of dust bunnies and crud. Canned air is the best way to get things cleaned up so that heat can dissipate properly. It's possible that, if your video card has overheated, it could be failing.
