It's impossible to say what caused it from the scant info you've given us.
At a bare minimum we need to know what appeared on the BSOD, such as the fault description at the top and the error code lower down. That would at least give us a few clues.

To ensure that the next BSOD stays on-screen for you to read and write it down, you need to disable
the automatic restart feature:

Control Panel > System
Click the Advanced tab
Under Startup and Recovery click Settings

untick Automatically restart
Click 'OK'

Next time a BSOD occurs it will stay on screen.

that and the first thing i suspect when bsods happen on a laptop and when u game on them its just an overheating issue. Which can be resolved by either buying a cooling pad or placing the laptop on a smooth wooden surface like a table for example

computers are a second home

Event logs and dump logs may provide a clue.

Data issues could happen with some games.

If it continues to bsod after cooling down then consider tests of hardware like memory diagnostics. Try to access dump or event logs if possible in safe mode.

Run repair tools provided in Windows 7 boot.

Hang up and live.

yes all of the above answers are good but why dnt you compare your computer's memory with the requirement of the game ?? I think memory is the main root cause of the Stop Errors to occur. Also if you donot have the graphic card then that creates more problems. in a nut-shell check out the requirements to play the game.

Solving Technical queries is my passion and I just Love it !!
