Hello Stv086 and welcome to G2G!

What are your specs?
Have you tried lowering the details settings?
Have you tried updating your other hardware drivers?
Are there any errors in the event log?

What drivers did you update? graphics, sounds, motherboard chipset?

Go into control panel > administrative tools > event viewer > application and look for errors logged around the time the game closes.

Update your sound card drivers and your motherboard chipset drivers.
Download and install both patches.
Double click the application error, copy and paste the error message in your next post.

hpoevm08.exe appears to be part of some HP multi-function printer drivers.

Does it have any errors in the system log?

does it do it in other applications? try downloading a video/performance test to see what your system does. If it crashes during the test then it more than likely is a faulty video card.
