computer screen turns off and other things

Specs: Windows 7
So, obviously I don't know whats wrong with my computer. I play WoW and that shouldn't be to hard on my system. Whenever I play, my screen goes all wonky after awhile, sometimes its 10min, sometimes it'll last an hour. There will be bars going across the screen and the graphics will be all screwed up. Sometimes my monitor will just shut itself off and won't turn back on, I'll have to restart to get it to turn on again. Other times my computer will beep and shut off completely, sometimes a blue screen will come up with a bunch of writing, but it turns off so fast that I don't have time to read what it says. Its usually fine doing anything else, browsing the net or even watching a movie, its when I play a game it gets all screwed up. When I'm not even touching the computer it occassionly turns off! Well idk if it actually turns off but my tower will go completely silent, then it will start up again but it'll be on the exact same screen it was on to begin with, it doesn't restart... idk what it does. But when that happens a msg comes up saying 'usb device not recoginized' and i have no usb devices plugged in that are not recognized. The unknown device is apparently 'Universal Serial Bus controllers'... idk what that is, but when i look in my device manager thats the only unknown device. Hopefully someone can help me!

Don't use short form text words in public forums... you may know what "idk" is but a foreigner may not.

Can't help you but someone else may be able to unravel your post

down load speed fan, and keep an eye on your temps, also download a temp monitor for your video card.
if its not temps, then it could be a dodgy memory stick, try removing all sticks and then run your system on one stick for a while, try each stick in each slot, to prove a bad stick or a bad slot.
check your power supply is ok for running your whole system.
also check in device manager for any problem devices, update drivers and software for those devices.

i hate computers!
but cant help myself....
