Single Player Kepps freezing :L

For some reason, for the past few days, I think before yesterdays update, my single player keeps freezing. I dont know why. It usually happens when it says estabishing connection to server (wtf, its not online xD) Anyways, my computer specs are

-windows 7 Dell Inspiron 1440 Laptop
-3 GB RAM
-Pentium® Duel-Core CPU T4300 @ 2.10GHz 2.10 GHz
-64-bit Operating System
-Mobel Intel® 4 Series Express Chipset Family (Graphics Card

Mobel Intel cards aren’t the greatest for playing games, I used to use a laptop that had worse specs than yours (1GB RAM, 2.0 GHz Dual-Core), with only having to turn down the graphics properties to lowest, and no changing the DirectX level. I never froze.

Just turn down the graphic properties and it should end up all good.

But it ALWAYS used to work, for the past 3 or so months :L
I’ll try to lower, but I’m not sure thats the problem when I’m startig the game xD
