Maybe it's a grapchis card driver issue. Try looking at the manufacturers website to see if there's a Windows 7 64bit compatible driver.

Hi and welcome

dude first 64bit with 2gigs of ram is always going to be a dog. It is the absolute minimum required to work.
I suspect that plus other issues are at work

can you type eventvwr in search. go to the windows logs>application tab.
look for errors ( the have a red warning in the left column) that have app crash, app hang, or the name of the game in them. there will be a bunch of them.
when you find them look for the "event ID" and "source" is, let us know what they are
