Oblivion error on win. 7 x32

I have the windows x32 and when i try to start it up it just tells me that oblivion has stopped working. i've tried some compatability modes and my dad has installed things that should have helped but it's the same thing over and over. As of now, he thinks it might be something with the graphics card, but we're not sure. it seems everyone can run it on a x64 but isnt a x32 more compatable since Windows XP is a x32?
Anyways, ive been settling with playing it on my dad's laptop but i can live like this any help on this is much appreciated. here are some of my specs, i dont know how relevant most of this is to the problem so if more info is needed just contact me.

Op. system: Windows 7 32-bit (6.1, Build 7600)
Sys model: Satellite A135
BIOS: Ver. 1.00PARTTBLO
Processor: Genuine Intel(R) CPU T2080 @1.73GHz (2CPUs), -1.7GHz

Have you tried deleting the .ini files and start the game, forcing it to remake them?


Documents/ My games / Oblivion
then delete the Oblivion text files


If that doesn't help , it may simply be the fact of a laptop with integrated graphics. That may be the issue.

alright well i did try that, and it didnt work. there was however a notification saying something like the graphics card couldnt be identified or something was up with it so it defaulted to medium graphics, so now i'm definitely sure it is something to do with the graphics card, so ill probably have to get a new one or save up for a better computer. thanks for the suggestion

I cannot get the 1.2.0146 patch to install. I get the "Not a valid win32 app." I am running Windows 7 in 64 bit. Anyone know of a fix? I am going to start installing other games to see if I have any problems with them as well. Thanks to anyone who looks here and answers!
