No need to upgrade RAM without first testing it. It's always good to update Java and Flash. The #1 cause of issues like this is the driver of your video card and it's easy place to start.

1. Download and install driver sweeper:

2. Download the latest drivers for your video card.

3. Uninstall your current drivers through control panel.

4. Reboot to safe mode and run driver sweeper.

5. Reboot to normal and install the latest drivers.

If this doesn't fix it there is a chance that you have hardware damage due to overheating. Test the memory (many ways to do this). Contact the video card manufacturer and check if you are under warranty.
