How are you powering the laptop when the crashes seem to happen? Battery or AC adapter powered?
Have you tried running it in Safe Mode to see if the problem goes away?
Seems to me we have a driver conflict or hardware failure taking place here.
Also you mentioned that you skipped the video drivers during one of your windows installations, it could be that windows took it upon its self to load a driver anyways.
You might want to nose around in the laptop's BIOS settings to see if anything there is not configured right.
When you cleaned out the inside of this laptop, you made sure the processor's cooling fins were lint free too correct?
There are a lot of things that can go wrong with laptops because of their portability and the abuse they endure during travels, you may have a cold solder joint that has suddenly decided to act up.
Just running off a few things you could investigate as the cause of this problem.
Your video card is dead/dying. Samething would happen to my wife's lap top.

A new laptop cheaper than a new graphics card? Not hardly...
