An additional info, Ive read through lenovo forums and found a thread about RAM upgrades.

When i 1st purchase this laptop, they include a free ram upgrade, which totals to 12GB, currently im having now.
They also said that having same manufacturers for the RAMS will give a boosts. Its better.

But i checked on my RAMs using the CPUID and found that my rams have the different manufacturers and different part number.

Should i try removing the RAM and test it out? Cos if i removed it, i could till have a 4GB ram.

Ok, so double click the ISO file and you should find an interface that allows you to burn the program on to a disk.
Insert a blank disk into your DVD drive and then burn the program on to the disk.

Now open the disk and double-click the file on it, Memtest should run.

Few things: Memtest86+ checks your RAM, not your Hard Disk (my bad! sorry haha)
More things to test:
Free Software - GIMPS to test your CPU
HD Tune website to test your hard drive (this is the one that tests your hard disk )
GPU-Z Video card GPU Information Utility to monitor your Graphics Card temperatures
Real Temp - CPU temperature monitoring to monitor your CPU temperatures

and last but not least, a MASSIVE GUIDE:

Also, For GPU-Z and Realtemps, try running your games again and keep those two programs in the background. once you finish running your game, check the temperatures again. Generally, anything over 75Celsius is hot, but some cards are designed to run hotter

This Might Help:

msconfig - boot faster and crash less.

1. Click on the Windows 7 start icon in the bottom left corner of your screen.

2. Type msconfig in the search box and then either press enter on your keyboard or double-click on the msconfig program that appears in the search results.

3. Windows 7 will launch Microsoft's System Configuration Utility. Click on the Startup tab.

4. This takes you to a page with a list of "startup items." Startup items are programs that are automatically loaded every time you turn on your computer. Some startup programs are absolutely necessary e.g Anti Virus, others are simply a waste of RAM.

5. Click on the OK button.

6. A message will pop up telling you that you must restart your computer before these changes will take effect. Click on "Restart" and your computer will automatically reboot.

7. That's it! Your computer should now boot faster and crash less.

If you ever want to turn on any of the startup items you disabled with msconfig , just run msconfig again.
