sounds like you have either heat issues, or damaged installation files.
so download speedfan and monitor your temps while playing games.. or open a cmd window as admin and SFC /scannow.. this will check and try to repair damaged system files..however i would be tempted to look into overheating as a problem for you.
Windows 7 SP 1 build 7601, AMD Turion II M620/4Gb RAM, adequate cooling is a neccesity....

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

D7 or DV7? And what about the rest of the model number? Is it a Walmart special? Did it ship with Win7 or did you install it?

shipped with HP - no one in their right mind would install Win 7 when XP pro is (finally) a relatively stable platform and doesn't require spending valuable time to learn (again) a new user interface -

XP pro is (finally) a relatively stable platform

XP is almost in extinction now...bite the bullet and use win 7...the best OS going!
