Every game crashes!

512 is plenty to play a game and run XP.
The fact that a RAM tester showed an error once and then did not later does not mean the memory fixed itself. Indeed, the fact that memory does not error out does not mean it is good.
What memory tester did you use?
Remove one stick, play the game. Does it error? If so, insert other stick, removing the one that was still there. Does it error?
Are there any programs running in the background/at start up. Disable them
Have you been checked for malware

I used memtest86 to test the memory.
I ran seatools for my HD and it said 'The file system contains errors that need to be repaired'
I couldn't run a drive test, it says 'SMART self-test is not supported for this drive. This may be due to a limitation in the Windows driver for the controller that the drive is attached to or the drive may not support the SMART self-test. In either case, this is not a failure of the drive.'

SMART is a system used to detect impending drive failure it used to be reserved for more expensive hard drives for corporate use but its finding its way into drives used by home users.
And considering your RAM is coming up fine in the tests you need to start thinking about other things, software can often find it difficult to diagnose hardware problems accurately unless it is specifically designed to do that.
