Windows 7: My laptop keeps crashing...

This indicates that your RAM is probably OK. I say "probably" because Memtest, like most hardware tests, is not 100% accurate. But it is a good indication.

I suggest you test your video card with Furmark following the instructions in this tutorial: Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark. Post back with your results.

I ran the test. It wasn't worth it. I'm on a laptop and running an onboard Intel GMA4500MHD with shared memory. All I saw was artifacts. The test couldn't make any smooth graphics at all. It looked like a stop-motion claymation.

That indicates you may have a graphics adapter problem. Is your computer under warranty? If so, I suggest you have it checked under warranty.

It is not under warranty. But keep in mind that it is a low end laptop. Newer, yes, but I wouldn't expect much out of it for graphics. I have run other benchmark tests and compared performance and it seems to be right beside similar computers.

Got it. As long as it is working properly for your uses, that is good. But if it defective at all, it can be causing problems. I ran Fruamrk on my own board graphics chip, which I do not use, and it only distorted and artifacted at the middle high and high end.
