Sorry, I do not have any RAM, but I’d comment that if Tamara’s laptop WAS OK in the past then unless you have a RAM failure I would be more inclined to think that her disk drive is throwing out a load of errors due to bad blocks or other errors. Try running the appropriate Mint disk utilities. link

If you find a load of bad blocks then it may be an early warning sign of impending disk doom or just that Tamara is flipping the laptop on-off switch rather than doing it properly through the software. (Linux often  uses ‘write-behind‘ so flipping the switch to shutdown is a good way to stuff things up.)
