GTA Vice City freezes

I'm running it in a Dual Core 1.8 ghz, Windows XP SP3, 1,93 gb RAM, 64 mb integrated graphics. Also, I downloaded the game, and it have no mods.
I can play perfectly, obviously until it crashes. Any solutions?
Thanks, and sorry about my english.

I ask that, as this is a known problem with XP SP3 and Vista-however, the fix for this is to use 98 compatibility mode...OR Since you have XP, try Going to Start, Run and type in DXDIAG and press Enter, then click the Sound tab and lower the Sound Acceleration to either Basic or None...(note this trick only works on XP and certain Windows 7 computers-HP are the ONLY ones I have seen that has this option on Windows 7-via the Beats Audio page-Sound Acceleration was disabled on Vista).
