    There's a program called Speccy, it's small and free to download, that will tell you all sorts of details about your computer. I suggest you run that. Knowing your CPU, motherboard, and videocard make and model will be a good start.
  5. if you can't last for longer than a few minutes try booting with your on board graphics and then download all your drivers
