Go to a local electronics store and ask for a Memory chip (you want 2 512MB chips) also ask for a DVD-RW Compatible drive. Both the drive and the memory chip will have instructions for putting it inside a computer

some graphic cards are made for speed, they have their own rams, processor's and fan's, also as time goes by, ya have to update your driver's, try updating them, also, most computer come with 4 gig's of ram, this also helps the speed of your computer, random access memory, is temporary, not store memory , try adding more ram's
Based on everything your saying I would replace the memory modules and verify the fans on the CPU and Graphics processor are working properly. Typically you get this problem when a ship overheats, a memory module is going out or the power supply is fluctuating.
What you'll need to do is set your TV to whatever input you're using on the laptop (VGA or HDMI). Then go into Display Properties, which can be found in Control Panel. Select the grayed out 2nd display and check "Extend desktop onto this monitor". Slide the resolution to something your TV can support such as 1366x768 or 1920x1080. Apply, OK, OK and you're done. The exact steps that you'll need is slightly different than the instructions here because of variation in TVs and OSes, but it's mostly identical.
The manufacturer offers updates at their website. Here is the link for the update page: http://www8.garmin.com/updatemaps/
You'll need to plug your Nuvi into your PC (it uses a mini-USB to USB data cable), and the website detects which unit you have and which updates are available for it. You'll have to download "MyGarmin Agent" and/or Garmin's Communicator Plugin first, if you don't already have them installed on your computer. It's a good idea to have a MicroSD card plugged into your Nuvi before connecting it to your PC (The Nuvi and the memory card each show up as removable drives in My Computer). Otherwise, if the unit is too low on memory when you attempt to update, you'll either have to get a MicroSD card to expand the available memory, or deal with reduced map data coverage.
Unfortunately, I don't believe the updates are going to be free for you -- Garmin has very specific conditions in order to qualify for an update at no charge. Don't quote me on that, though.... Not knowing all the specifics on your unit or it's purchase, I can't say for sure. I'll keep my fingers crossed for ya.
You should add more memory, remove the amount of programs that are set in the startup folder, and increase your Virtual memory Paging File size.
Click on ‘Control Panel’’
Depending on your setting, you’ll see one of two Control Panel views, Category and Classic. Category View will have four Categories to choose from, Classic View will just show a bunch of icons.
In the Category View click on ‘Performance and Maintenance’ then select ‘’System’.
In the Classic View, just select ‘System’.
In the System window, click on the ‘Advanced’ tab at the top.
The first option in the Advanced screen is ‘Performance’. Click on the ‘Settings’ button.
Click on the middle tab called ‘Advanced’
At the bottom of that window you’ll see Virtual Memory. In that area you’ll see what your computer’s VM is set to. Just below it, click the ‘Change’ button.
Here, you’ll see your drives at the top, as well as the size of the Paging File. Below that are three buttons. Custom Size, System Managed Size and No Paging File.
If you want the easiest solution to a low VM issue, select ‘System Managed Size’, and click the ‘Set’ button in the right of it. Windows will change the size of the Paging File to what it feels is best to prevent RAM issues. If you’re a tweaker who wants more control over your computer, you can also select Custom size, and enter 2.5 times you actual RAM size. If you had 128MB, you’d type in 320 for both the Initial Size and the Maximum size. Again Click the ‘Set’ button to save the change.
If you are making these changes to perform a clean defragmentation of your computer, select No Paging File and click the ‘Set’ button.
Regardless of which option you chose, click OK and your computer will tell you that the computer needs to restart to make the changes.
Before closing the System Properties window, click Apply to make your changes stick, then Ok. Now you can restart your computer.
After you computer has restarted, your new VM settings will be active, just don’t forget to turn VM back on when you are done defragmenting.
It’s important to leave VM on, though. No matter how much RAM you have, there’s always the chance you’ll run out.
