I would see if bumping up the RAM to at least 8 GB would do the trick. My guess would be that the processor can't handle the load because there is not that much RAM to use. I believe Windows 7 uses at least 2 GB just for the operating system to run. If you try to use a program, like a video program, that uses a lot of RAM; you might find yourself with a PC that will have issues like shutting down.
