These crashes were caused by 5 different things. Two were caused by your video driver. That should be removed completely and then a fresh copy downloaded and installed.
Two were caused by memory corruption. It might be that the video driver was just memory corruption in disguise. to test your memory download a 3rd party app called memtestx86, burn it to cd, and run it for 7 passes at least

One was caused by a system file (though it probably was also memory) because of this I would run a system file check

(tyep cmd in sear Ch>right click and run as admin>sfc /scannow

Let us know the results and if you are overclocking STOP

Memory Test Results

I tried to get the Memtestx86 but I guess I don't know what I am doing wrong with it. However, I did run the Windows Memory Diagnostic with the extra features 3x times. When I awoke this morning it told me I had memory problems and to contact the manufacture.

The memory I have is Crucial Balistix 4GB (2x2GB) DDR2 PC-6400 800 at 2volt. I bought it Christmas 2008. It seems really new to have problems, and I previously ran XP on it with no issues. Could Windows Memory Diagnostic be wrong and I should use the Memtestx86?

If not and I do have memory problems what is the best recommended fix/ how can I prevent this from happening again? (what caused it?)

I do not and will not overclock.

Results from the system file checker and video driver update should come later this afternoon as I am at work now.

As I recall Crucial RAM has a lifetime warranty.
Exchange it - why take chances?

If you're still not sure, try these instructions for MemTest: Memory Diagnostics (read the details at the link)

As for what caused it - it could just be that "stuff happens", or it could be that something like a power surge/outage has damaged the RAM. There's no telling, but the safest thing to do is to ensure that you have a good surge protector(s).

I've had lightning hit my wife's office twice within 15 minutes. The first strike blew out our cheap surge protectors (the type that lose protection after one strike) - so the second strike blew out several of the computers. Now I have everything protected by 2 surge protectors (1 on the building and one on each computer).
