The picture was taken when a game was running in the background.
I'll let you know about the memtest later. Thanks.
P.S. Do I have to run it twice, for each RAM stick?

You need to run it through at least 2 passes completely for each stick to verify if each stick is good.

OK sounds like a good plan. Let me know if either show any errors.

The memtest ran 11 passes on the second RAM stick, and it found no errors. I hate to re-insert the RAM sticks - they just don't want to go in.

They only go in one way and should not be that hard to re-insert. The memory is key slightly off center and will only work turned the right direction.
Now that we know it is not a memory issue you need to consider the possibility of a hidden infection.
I suspect that you have some malware on your computer causing issues that we are not able to solve through means we can use here in the Tech Forums. I suggest you read the 'Start Here' topic found HERE. With these self-help tools you have a high chance of fixing the problems on your own. If you are still having problems after following Step 3 of the guide, continue with Step 4 and 5 and post in the Malware Forum. If you are unable to run any programs, Please create a topic stating what you have tried so far and that you are unable to run any programs. Also, Please do NOT post the logs in this thread.

If you are still having issues after the malware expert gives you a clean bill of health, Please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).
