Default Black or Green screen


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
New Rig FTW
E7400 @ 2.8 GHZ
HD4650 PowerCooler

My System Specs


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?
