Do you run memtest with laptop plugged in, or running from battery?

The laptop came with 1GB of DDR2 ram installed

Good and no.
Remove one stick and simply run the computer on one stick for a day, or so. See, if it'll BSOD.
If the first stick checks out, switch sticks.
This manual check is always superior to any software check, like metest.

BSOD never happens, except for the above scenario?
the only time I have been able to recreate the BSOD my nephew gets was when I ran Memtest and the laptop shut off, then upon turning back on the laptop I got the BSOD

I am trying to repair my nephews laptop. It is an Acer 5100. I gives a BSOD when either the battery dies while the laptop is left on or today it died while running the 3 or 4 string of the MEMTEST ram testing program. Is the fact that the laptop shut off during MEMTEST mean the ram is bad? The laptop came with 1GB of DDR2 ram installed. Thanks for the help in advance.

It looks to me like RAM problem, but probably we won't know more until it happens again.
