My MacBook keeps freezing when its moved, is it the ram?

Hello i have a 2009 macbook core 2 duo, and its been working great until 2 weeks ago, when suddenly froze, so i reboot it and it just start working again until i move it, when it just froze again, so i did it again a couple of times to make sure that it just freezes when move so i did and in deed thats when the problem comes up, so i make a little research and i found that it might be a RAM problem, but in the articles i found the MacBooks didn't worked until the RAM was changed, and that's not my case, in a matter of fact im on it right now, it works perfectly while standing in a desk, but as soon as i move it it just freezes again, what can it be??

You guys, I took my MacBook Pro to India, the dude fixed it for $80 and he was an Apple certified dude. Don't take your stuff to Apple, it's a rip off. Try to look for a certified Apple technician in your area. And did I mention, he extended my ram from 4 GB to 8 GB.

"You should stop moving the laptop, especially one that age, it's not a phone or tablet.

Laptops were meant to be moved from one location to another and used without carrying. HD are not SSD's laptops have ""motion detectors"" to park the heads (e.g. freeze or pause) to stop from physically damaging the heads and platters of the drives.

One (if that's the only one) missing screw from the bottom of the case should not be enough to cause your behavior.... picking up or jostling the laptop is...
