Default Black or Green screen

Hey

So i got a new GPU about 4 months ago, and every 4 hours the screen of my computer goes into a green or black screen of which i have to restart my machine via the power button. This happens mostly when i play Minecraft, which i find unusual. Whats going on here?

My GPU is the HIS Iceq HD6850
Thanks

My System Specs

Default

How are your gpu temperatures? (I can't imagine they get bad from playing minecraft )

Is your computer monitor shutting off from inactivity? check power options in windows
System stable?
Power supply maybe failing?
