Here’s some issues I found with your log that might help.

  • You are running out of date drivers for your GPU. You need to install the most recent driver for your graphics card from Intel’s website. https://downloadcenter.intel.com/product/80939/Graphics-Drivers
  • Enabling Accurate Multiplication is recomended in certain games. If you are experiencing graphical glitches, try enabling this option.

You will first need to update to Windows 8.1 or 10 to be able to install new drivers: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/15288/windows-8-update-to-windows-8-1

Since you have i3-3240 which is a desktop CPU, do you have a graphics card in your computer? You can check in Device Manager under Display adapters if it says more than Intel HD Graphics 2500.
