Ok my computer has been worse since the MemTest. It keeps freezing to where I have to hold the power button to get it to shut down it happened twice today. Then when I turned it back on it was a lit black screen it eventually worked again, but then it froze less than 5 minutes of being on again! Please help! It never used to do it this much!

Hmm, run SeaTools if you have a HDD as a boot partition. If you have an SSD as a boot partition then run the discs that came with it. SeaTools for DOS and Windows - How to Use

I would move towards temp checks on the cpu & gpu as it seems you may be overheating
Check temps at idle and monitor as you load up the machine, if necessary use Prime95 to stress the cpu but DO NOT leave unattended while doing this and terminate test if temps rise too high or too fast

Ok so I got SeaTools. Which test should I run? I really don't want this computer to overheat.

Good call Paul.
Memtest86+ shows cpu temps at 89C.

Well, i was going to go for that after a scan of the HDD. Run a Short & Generic test.

I just ran the test and it passed the Short Generic test.

So what should I do at this point? It seemed like all the tests so far has passed. I really think my GPU is the problem because my Windows Movie Maker won't even work. It just stays at a black screen and won't even attempt to play videos I put into it, but it will play pictures. And as you saw the blue screens all had lines through them which shows a video card problem. Thanks for the help so far!

Well, yea. The GPU is the faulty i think. Because from the first snap i saw that it had lines and stuff. That's not normal at all. You can't open Movie Maker because of the heavy fail that's going on on the computer.

So you think I need to replace my GPU then? How much would that cost? And how could you replace it in a laptop?
