Exclamation Graphics driver crashes on joining game!

Whenever I join a game, my screen turns black, goes back to normal, and I get a taskbar popup saying my graphics driver has crashed and recovered. It then repeats every 10 seconds until I end the process. I'm running the game at fully minimum settings. My computer specs are:
  • Windows 7 64-bit
  • 8GB RAM
  • Pentium Dual-Core CPU E5700 (3GHz + 3GHz)
  • Intel(R) G45/G43 Express Chipset Graphics
  • 146GB free hard drive space

Whoops! Yeah, I should have updated the drivers. Went from 8.15.10.2302 to 8.15.10.2555...

(Also, I didn't buy Intel... My computer came with it.)

EDIT: ...to no prevail. It keeps crashing. Oh well.
