BSoD when starting a game

  1. A game called "Neo Steam" causes my computer to crash often with the exact same error message and I'm a large player of this game, one of my favorite things to do. If anyone could possible help me? Minidumps are provided.

    Driver error. Double check you driver requirements, then reinstall.

    You don't have enough memory to run NeoSteam, if you have other devices running. Your AMD Athlon 64 is not fasdt enough at 1.61 GHz...
    Regardless of what the specs say are minmum...
    I suspect your system has a difficult time running a 3 GB drive and that GeFirce MX nVidia GeForce Ti.
    You are placing too many demands on a limited system...
    Your specs may say one thing, but your opeational demands say another.

    Thats the thing, after further testing on my brother's computer (Identical to mine in every way as we bought the same model, same time, ect.) He can play NeoSteam without any interruptions and can actually leave the game on for 24hours or more.

    It cannot be the specs for the game being underpowered as he would not be able to run the game either if that were the case...
