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

Check you have the most up to date graphics driver for ummmm that graphics card and then in the game you will have to set everything to low to even stand a chance that it will run.....Good luck!!!

When was the last time you cleaned out your PCs inards? Dust can build up within the CPU heatsink/fan increasing temperatures. You may be able to monitor system temperatures with Speedfan (search Google).

Have you installed all the updates for windows 98? Is it just a problem with this game (NFS2 Underground). Are you sure the onboard graphics is capable of playing that? Updated motherboard drivers (very important) and BIOS? Could be a driver conflict somewhere.

When you go into controlpanel>device manager is there anything there with a yellow caution sign or red exclamation?

What make and model is your motherboard and what chipset does the onboard graphics use?

considering how he has a mere 64 megs of ram, his choices are quite limited. (unless we include linux)

2000 would run..horribly slow, but would run.
