If you're using Win7, it shouldn't crash, is it a cracked version?
It could also be a defective processor, one of the cores could be bad.
And are you overclocking anything?

Could you post what you're using on your PC?
And tell me your OS, please tell me if anything is cracked.

Its A Cracked Version Of Win 7 Ultimate

Video Card: Nvidia GeForce 9300GE
Cpu: Amd 64 X2 5200+ Dual Core 2.7GHz
PSU: 420 Watt
Memory: 4 Gigs (2x 2GB sticks)
MoBo: Gigabyte GA-MA78G-DS3H

Nothing OverClocked Or Broken.

I opened the cheats window and it stopped crashing (soo far..)
I tried reseating the cpu,ram, gpu. New power supply, and even re-downloaded the whole game.

The strage thing is when it crashes there is no B-S-O-D, Errors. Nothing. Just a full re-boot

Try this hack, it updates the Nvidia timeout value in Windows that is set very short by default, with some cards it's problematic and the patch here solves a few issues

create a patch.reg with this inside and double click it

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\GraphicsDrivers]
"TdrDelay"=dword:00000014
"TdrLevel"=dword:00000000

If it does not change or cause you problems you can revert to default with

revert.reg
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\GraphicsDrivers]
"TdrDelay"=-
"TdrLevel"=-

TdrDelay is set to 20sec in my sample, you can try other values but never go below 2 which is Windows default

Maybe has something to do with Windows, I play on Windows 8
