Why does my laptop crash after watching streaming videos (BBC iplayer / Youtube) for about 40 minutes? How would I go about investigating / fixing it?

After installing Ubuntu my laptop developed this specific fault. I'm now back on XP in an attempt to fix it, but it's still happening.
I did a memory check which threw up loads of errors, so bought new memory which made no difference (memory check still threw up loads of errors).
The laptop is fairly old, but works perfectly well apart from this error.
Any help gratefully receieved.
