Default When Minimizing Counter-Strike, blue screen

I just started to play cs again recently and Im also minimizing it quite frequently. The first few times i minimize it its fine, but then the next time my PC decides to die and give me a blue screen for abour 1/2 a sec and then it reboots. (I think it says something about hardware failure?)

So i ran memtest:

Im thinking that it could also be my video card because it crapped out in my bro's pc due to dust and heat and i cleaned it and got it working in my system. At first it was still buggy, but it works now so im not touching it, its "sketchy" but works. Is there a way i can test my vid card for stabliity, or is my problem unlrelated to my vid card.

Im willing to format if its a widowze problem.

i also think its ur video card because ur stressing it too much through minimizing and reopening it. blowing the dust off is the first thing and the second thing u should do it replacing the thermal paste on it before it over heats n dies!
