ok, first off i would make sure you got the video settings low, cuz with your computer it prob can't handle much. next thing to do, is it overheating? the fans might be getting full of dust and make the computer overheat, witch will make the computer crash. good luck, post more for use to help you.

well, when your using the game, there are settings in the game that you can change that will make the it look worse, but make it so the game runs better. saying you have onboard video, it can't handle that good video. but im betting it's the computer overheating

Whoa no one should have to go with those specs. You should try turning most of the settings in the liek detail and that down, just like the other said
