I have the same problem on my laptop, the screen will start flashing and the arrow will leave after-images of itself all over the screen then a message appears saying "A problem has occured, please restart and try again".

Laptop hardware might often conflict with games even tho technically it might be powerfull enough to run it, especially when the game is a sloppy console port and even more so with intel gpu. You can try updating drivers, tweak settings(windowed, movies disabled) and the other usual stuff but there's always the chance that your GMA 945 simply isn't supported.
