This is most likely linked to the graphic chipset your using and that the driver support is limited or does not fully support the shader effects used in–game.

Outside of getting a dedicated graphic card, where possible, you can try disabling the Shaders used in–game.

1) Close down the game

2) Locate the World of Warcraft installer folder

3) Open WTF/ with Notepad

4) Add the following line to the end of that file SET FixedFunction «1»

5) Save that file then restart the game.

This should reduce or stop the crashes.
