Game Freezes up CPU

I have a Dell Inspiron B130 with Windows XP. Everytime I play a 3D game called Audition it randomy freezes and says my video/display driver stopped working. I was wondering if you knew of a driver download that I was unaware of because this is very frustrating!

Thanks
-Ash

Your video card cannot support the graphics that game is trying to run. Try setting the graphics on the game's menu to a lower resolution or get a higher powered video card.

Computer freezes up; too slow. Previously


Make sure you rerun the antivirus software again. Then you will need to do a complete disk cleanup and disk defragment.

As a last resort you can reload windows. There is an option to load new copy or not choose not and you can keep all your files in place.

Could be that you have intel integrated graphics and the game does not support your chipset... It could be that the laptop is overheating or that your RAM is bad... I recommend checking your GFX Card first and then doing a ram check with a Linux live cd such as Ubuntu. You can also download a utility that can check your CPU temp if you can not find it in your BIOS.

Well start a bit slower then.
go into the bios at startup F2, and navigate around does it freeze there. if no then
start windows in safe mode F8 when windows logo shows.

If its not freezing then turn off the startup programs.
Start/run/msconfig and then uncheck load startup items
and start normally, click the dont show me this again /ok
any freezing.
If its freezing you may have a hardware issue.

boot the dell diagnostics cd and check the cpu and memory.
