Video Hardware Error

I returned home earlier to find my computer in a very laggy state, and I wasn't able to play any of my games. An action center scan revealed a 'video hardware error'. The files that describe the problem are two xml files and a dmp, they are attached.

I am only a teen, and at the moment understand very little about computer hardware, especially when it goes wrong. Any help would be welcomed. The laptop is under warranty, but I don't really want to get it replaced...
Thanks for help in advance

I see no-one is interested in helping. I'll just play my games at 4fps then.
