the grahics card, which is an onboard one cannot handle the gameplay. does the freezing occur whilst in gameplay or when your are starting the game up.

if its only playing the game, then go to options and put every graphics option on low so you can run the game on the computer.

Depends on what m/board it is, does it have an AGP slot or is it PCI-e

More ram would probably be required too

What exactly is your pc???
