Hey, Just got my new Macbook Pro around June, and already I am having problems with it

 

The first time it happened it was in Mac OS X (Snow Leopard), but I didn't really understand what had happened. All of a suddent my computer kind of just stopped, and then all of a sudden there was just a distorted glitchy screen. The only thing I could do was Hard Reset. T

The next time this happened, I was on my Windows 7 partition, watching a Youtube video, the screen went black, then came back. I got a small error message in the bottom right the my video card had encountered an error and had recovered. I thought to myself whatever no big deal, and I kept doing things on the computer. When I went back to watch the video (had to refresh the page because the entire video had gone green for some reason) the computer crashed the same way it did before. The exact same scenario has happened to me at least one other time.

 

The model of Macbook I have is the 15" 2.2 GHz i7, 750 GB HDD, and my video card is the AMD Radeon HD 6750

 

Thanks in advance!

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8)
