Default Laptop Issues

HP pavilion dv 4 Notebook PC

I've been having problems lately on my laptop(2yrs old), when I play Dragonica and EverQuest it crashes or stalls the clients and says
"A problem with you video hardware has caused Windows to stop working correctly".
Happens once or twice a day usually. Today it happened 4 times. I've Updated my drivers already. The problem occurs randomly while playing the games. I'll try to take a screen shot next time it happens and post it.
If there is anything else I can do to further assist just ask.

Does it give you an error file? Like a text file giving more details?

What OS are you using?

Since this is vista go into performance monitoring and check the reliability chart. That usually will create an entry when the computer or an application crashes.
