    Premiere Pro CS4 shuts down while I'm watching or shuttling HD video

      I'm trying to edit some 1080i HD video from a Nine Inch Nails concert that Trent Reznor made available on the internet, but everytime I shuttle through the video or play video for a certain amount of time Premiere Pro CS4 just completely shuts down without any error messages.  It's driving me nuts. I can't edit for more than 2 minutes before it crashes. The video will stutter and then *poof* Premiere Pro shuts down. Then it takes 20 minutes to re-open the project.

       

      I'm running Premiere Pro CS4 on a 1.83GHz Core2Duo with 3GB of RAM Windows XP laptop.  The graphics card is a 128MB Nvidia GeForce Go 7600.

       

      Is my laptop just too weak to handle HD video and that's why it crashes?  Or is there something else I should be checking?
