Game Crashing

I've been enjoying the latest Hitman game, sometimes it will let me progress through an entire level with not trouble. But a lot of times the game just crashes. I'm running the game on the lowest settings. For the most recent crash I copied the error information:

Problem signature:

Application Timestamp: 581360ee

My computer's specs are below:

Windows 7 Home Premium -- Service Pack 1
Alienware ALIENWARE_X51_R2
Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4770 CPU @ 3.40 GHz
Memory (RAM): 16.0 GB
64-bit Operating System

Does anyone understand what this means and how to fix these annoying crashes.

That's not enough to nail the fix.

Let's start with machine age and if you are keeping up with a monthly canned air to the vent cleaning.

Also, lowest settings? Is there a reason for that?

Take the cover off and give the innards a good cleaning.
Leave the cover off and power it up.
Verify all the fans function.
Run the game and test.
