This has been happening to me a lot. It happens randomly but almost always when i play a game. Sometimes it makes my Pc crash(Blue Screen of Death Error), sometimes it forces me to restart my pc by pressing the power button and most of the times just makes my screen go black.

My rig has:
4gb Ram
Win7 64-bit
i3 processor
512mb MSi N8400GS graphic card(powered by Nvidia GeForce 8400GS (with updated graphic drivers)

It happens when i play LOL, when i browse the web, when i play Minecraft, or when im just watching a movie.
Can anyone help me?

I'd try the following:

- Uninstall anything Nvidia Related from Add/Remove programs, including your drivers
- Download Driver Sweeper
- Reboot your PC and keep tapping F8 before the Windows Logo. You should get an option to boot into 'Safe Mode with Networking'
- Run Driver Sweeper and clean up any Nvidia drivers left behind
- Reboot and reinstall your drivers

If this doesn't work, it could be a sign of a physically faulty card causing crashes.

cubik, just checking.

Did the problem initially start when playing LoL? Where did you encounter the problem the very first time?
