Borderlands Crashing?

I just bought the game yesterday, and whenevr I run Borderlands, it runs fine until I get off the bus and go to the first loading screen. That is when it locks up and crashes my wholw computer. If it's any help my computers specs are:

Windows XP
Media Center Edition
Version 2002 Service Pack 2

AMD Athlon(tm) 64x2 Dual Core Processor 4200+
2.21 GHZ, 1.00 GB of RAM
Physical Adress extension.

If anyone can help, I'd be much obliged.

Crash is a very general word. Is it all of windows that is crashing requiring you to restart? Does the comp restart on its own? Do you get a blue screen of death? does it crash to desktop and freeze? Is it just the game crashing to the desktop with an error message? If so what is the error it gives?

describe the symptoms instead of telling people youre sick and need medicine.

Well I'm running a AMD Phenom II X 4 and I was crashing a lot.I would play at times for an hour or so and it would just crash to Windows desk top.
I read from someone in a forum to disable at least 2 of my 4 processors.
I did that and haven't crashed since.
What I did was start the game and then CTRL, ALT ,DEL to bring up the Task Manager.Then go to processes and find the borderlands.exe file and right click on it and chose set affinity and it will bring up the amount of processors your running .I was running 4 so I unchecked 2 of the processors.Its been smooth sailing ever since.Maybe Borderlands doesn't like multiple CPU's.

The game require 2GB of ram to play. You have only 1. Thats it.

Sorry for the short answer. You can run throught the cutscenes. But when it load the whole game, it takes some much RAM that your game crash. As I said, the game require 2GB of ram to play. You should consider more RAM.

I'm not sure why it doesn't work but I know you don't have to have 2GB's of RAM because I also only have 1GB of RAM. Runs fine, except for the long loading screens. Hehe, but that's about it.

You're gonna wanna upgrade memory, without 2 GB you can't play it.
