    I think u r running the game on ur ONBOARD gfx..So on some high detail gfx when u play the game it gets blank..So i suggest u 2 get a minimum 256Mb gfx card and then enjoy playing POP :)

    Check your Graphic Card driver
    If its old,then go for an updated driver from nVIDIA Website

    I completely disagree with the info that the game is using the on-board graphics card

    Normally before the game starts executing
    the game has a program that will force to check all the Hardware attached to the Computer

    Only after verifying that it meets the minimum requirements,it will prompt the user to start or quit the game as per the result

    I had the same problem when i started playing POP - Warrior Within
    After a graphic card update,problem was solved

    this can cause only by two things by ur graphics card or by heating up too much
    try changing ur graphics card
    & putting some good cooling fans on it
