blackouts while playing games

Specs: Windows Vista
screen goes black intermitenly when playing games on facebook. After 6 or 7 times the computer restarts itself. I think that it is a graphics card do I check for that?

What sort of card do you have? It's either the graphics card or the monitor (could be the monitor, but you'd have to use a different monitor to confirm.)

You can type DXdiag into run and then go to display to tell the model of card. If it is an onboard card, it would be as easy as getting a new video card and plugging it into the PCI slot on your motherboard (however, you also should check power supply voltages.)
