Why does TF2 keep crashing?

I'm using a config that allows my laptop to run the game, however, every time I play there will be a random point where the game freezes and the sound that was playing loops. It stops responding and I have to end it with the task manager. Why is this happening? How do I stop it?

Try a few things:
1. Make sure your laptop is actually up to snuff with the system requirements.
2. Make sure you have the latest drivers for your graphics card. Find out it's manufacturer and go to their website to get them.
3. Get the latest Direct X drivers. If you have Vista and your graphics processesor allows it, you should get Direct X 10. Otherwise get the latest version of 9.
4. Try removing it from Steam and reinstalling it.
5. Remember to reboot the computer every time you install these things, for good measure.
6. If all else fails, just wait until you can get a better machine. Remember, you can install it on as many computers as you like as long as you have your Steam account and password + an internet connection.

I have the same problem at times but recently it hasn't done it. Try looking at this and see if any of it helps.

I have this problem too, and if i don't close it quick enough then it won't minimize, anything, then goes blu-screen for a couple of sec's and shutsdown
