My laptop screen collapses when i try to play a game.

Specs: Windows 7, Intel Core 2 Duo T7500, 2200 MHz / 2048 MB (DDR2-533 DDR2 SDRAM)
This thing has been going on for a while now. At first it was only happening when the temperature was getting too high, during Diablo III. In this case, the screen of my laptop would gradually turn black(or purple/green). Now, it happens randomly. For instance, it occured 4 times in a row when i hit "resume game" button. I shot this video to show you what i mean:
I'm so sorry for the bad quality(and my hand :P) but i needed a fast solution.

I don't quite know what hardware info i ought to post here. Anyway, i'll post some basic one and let me know about that.

Video Adapter: NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT (512 MB)
CPU Type: Mobile DualCore Intel Core 2 Duo T7500, 2200 MHz (11 x 200)
Motherboard Name: Compal IFL90
Motherboard Chipset: Intel Crestline-PM PM965
System Memory: 2048 MB (DDR2-533 DDR2 SDRAM)
BIOS Type: Phoenix (08/29/07)

I think that your computers video card has something wrong.
Give it to a IT man and let he say do you or do you not update,/buy new video card.
I don´t know much about your computer but I know that this sort of things may happen then.
You might or anyone else that the thing is about screen but when it hapends only when you play games then it is the video card.
Have you cleaned your computer with the compressed air?
It shuld be in any PC and technic store and the prize should be like 6-12 €

Thank you for your answer. Well, the video card was the first idea that occured to me too. Its is certainly up-to-date, though. As for the compressed air, it hasn't been a long since i last cleaned the inside of my laptop. There was alot of dirt i may admit. It seems to me that my video card is sort of "dying" so it cannot stand much pressure. I'm really clueless though, this is just an assumption. Anyway, i appreciate your help,
