More about windows video card crashes collapses
  1. Windows 7 on a P4 w/2GB RAM might be the problem. But try cleaning the system first with CCleaner. Do the Clean and Registry both.

    Btw, you may want to uninstall the driver again, boot into Safe Mode, and run Driver Sweeper to uninstall any remnants of the old Nvidia GRAPHICS driver(s) that could be causing issues. Then re-boot to windows and re-install the newest driver.

  4. Crashes, right?
    Are you sure your PC is fulfill all the game's requirement? Because your PC is very old/outdated for today's standard...
  5. 1. Outdated PC.
    2. Dying GPU.
    3. Dying PSU.

    Any of the three. You just have to test it out what it is.

  7. have you done a good physical inspection of the cpu cooler and the gpu card? i found if you have an airflow through the case these points will collect dust - in the gpu this will render its fan/heatsink less effective or even useless and once the gpu temperature rises sufficiently theres more chance of something dieing on it

    if you have played the game (im not familiar with that game) before it suggests that either cpu/gpu is now struggling as above or something has already died - the parts are dated and only have limited lifespans

    open her up and have a good close inspection and report back id suggest

    vista and win7 do struggle with 2gb ram imho
