Yes, or maybe your BIOS has a built-in memory check, but these tend to be
not as thorough.  You might also want to check if your graphics drivers are
up-to-date, they've been blamed for causing trouble like this in other
instances, especially if the screensaver kicks in during high load.  But I'd
rule out dodgy memory first, let it run for at least four full test cycles
(that should take quite a while depending on how much memory you have).
