Default Screen goes black sometimes when gaming

Hey, so I have recently been having a problem where my screen will sometimes go black for about 3 seconds when I'm playing a game, and then come back. During the black screen, I can still hear sound and the game doesn't freeze or slow down at all. I notice sometimes that I will see lots of pixels turn red right before this happens. I have a Radeon HD 5770 graphics card, and I've taken it out and cleaned out the fans of dust, but that didn't seem to help much. I've also installed the latest video drivers and the problem persists. Anyone have any idea of what could be causing this?

What are your GPU temps when it does this?
