Windows 7: Supposed BSOD when launching any game application

Supposed BSOD when launching any game application

I've had my computer for some time now, A slightly modified HP PC. Threw in an NVIDIA GeForce 610 and a 500GB Hard drive and all was set for it to be used as a light gaming computer. For the longest time everything ran perfectly, but recently --mainly within the past 12 hours of posting this-- I've been having my entire computer crash with a supposed BSOD upon opening any game application I have. I have an entire step-by-step of what happens:

-Launch a game [Say, Minecraft]
-Play for about 2 minutes, with severe lag and FPS issues.
-Screen seems to lose connection to the tower, giving me "No signal input"
-Computer turns off, with no warning beyond the screen failure
-Restart computer, given options to launch in safe mode.
-Re-log in
-"Windows has recovered from an unexpected shutdown"
-Shutdown revealed as Bluescreen.

I have tried uninstalling all my games and reinstalling them, [The fast-downloading ones, rather]
My computer does show that my graphics card has stopped working, so I can guess that I'm posting on the wrong forum completely and am making myself look like a fool, But I figure I'd ask for help with my OS that detected something was iffy before I go whining to Nvidia support.

System specs have been filled out, I have no idea what's wrong.

Sorry if I don't provide enough information, I am genuinely confused as to what is happening.

I updated the drivers, The game still crashed, I noticed my memory usage was rising very fast, I fear the worst that it's the motherboard overheating or failing, Not sure if these help but I did attach some files collected from the applications I was told to run for BSOD problems

Hello again,

I noticed this...

DIMM #				1
	SMBus address		0x50
	Memory type		DDR2
	Module format		Regular UDIMM
	Manufacturer (ID)	Nanya Technology (7F7F7F0B000000000000)
	Size			1024 MBytes
	Max bandwidth		PC2-5300 (333 MHz)
	Part number		NT1GT64U8HB0BY-3C 
	Serial number		16980243
	Manufacturing date	Week 18/Year 08
	Number of banks		2
	Data width		64 bits
	Correction		None
	Nominal Voltage		1.80 Volts
	EPP			no
	XMP			no
	AMP			no
JEDEC timings table		CL-tRCD-tRP-tRAS-tRC @ frequency
	JEDEC #1		3.0-3-3-9-12 @ 200 MHz
	JEDEC #2		4.0-4-4-12-16 @ 266 MHz
	JEDEC #3		5.0-5-5-15-20 @ 333 MHz
As you can see your RAM is very old, and the MHz is also very low.

RAM of this age and speed is not upto gaming.

That would explain the high usage of memory and lag.

Please run memtest to see if there any errors here:

Sadly I cannot run most of the steps of the memtest. [As I only have one computer, and cannot take it apart myself] Because of my computer's upgrade [Which was very recent compared to the computer's age itself] I know the RAM isn't the problem, 5 hours prior to my first BSOD with this problem, I was running Minecraft with high graphics settings and modifications galore and only using about 30% of my allowed 1GB of space for it, while getting about 40-50 fps solid.
I have updated everything that can be updated on my system, and am still getting crashes. A few of my games were made long ago [I.e, Half-Life 2] and ran perfectly on my system that was made [Not upgraded] 4 years after the game was released, and those games crash as well. I cannot afford to buy new RAM at the moment, and am not sure how expensive it would be to get something else fixed, I plan on going to a computer shop or something similar this weekend to see if they can diagnose what's wrong here. But if there's anything else I can do that does not require taking apart my system, Please let me know.
