Yesterday our laptops hard drive ended up dying on us. So we replaced it and done a reinstall and now our laptop is fresh. Everything seemed to be working fine, then whilst playing World of Warcraft (during running a dungeon) the screen went black for about 3 seconds, then returns back to the game. It does this quite frequently but only whilst running dungeons. We checked to be sure all our drivers were up to date, which they were, as we suspected it may be the graphics card.
We are not sure what's causing this issue as it has never done this before and could run the game perfectly fine and only started to do so once we purchased the new hard drive.

The laptop is a Dell XPS M1330.

Thanks for any help in advance.

Edit: This message comes up if I alt tab out in the bottom right corner

""Display driver igfx has stopped responding and has successfully recovered"
