Okay so liek everytime my Mac ( Macbook running lepeard ) either goes into full screen mode or plays videos ( like you tube videos ) it crashes

it either:
freezes and does nothing at all so i have to hold down the power button
Freezes and quickly overlays da liek screen with something that says "you must restart/shutdown your mac now" with a big power button
Suddenly turns black without warning and beeps loudly 3 times

it does this especially when i turn the screen saver on...liek within 30 seconds always.
it liek didn use to do this when i first got it, and after it first happened i totally reset my macbook and erased all data and reinstalled etc but it didn help at all

:< !!! omgz pweeease help me with this i really dunno what to do :{

Sounds like a hardware issue with your graphics card- you might need to contact Apple.
