It could be a graphics driver problem, but its a common error. The rest of the writing that comes up would give more clues as to what driver is causing it.

Try going to control panel, system, advanced system settings. Under the advanced tab of the "system properties" click the "startup and recovery" settings button. Uncheck the Automatically restart box and click okay. This will give you the time to note down more details of the error report next time it happens.
