Hi matthieu,

I am not associated with Laminar Research; just a flight simmer from downunder.

You need to have a look at the following link which deals with the minimum and recommended settings to enable X-Plane to be run successfully.  The link can be found at

Many flight simmers have a system that is equal to or better than the Recommended system as XP11 is resource hungry placing demands on the CPU and GPU and generating some heat.

I am of the opinion that you system is well below requirements and will not work as you have experienced.  You need a dedicated graphics card not an integrated motherboard utilising the graphics card connection. If and when you decide to upgrade seriously consider an Intel CPU and a dedicated NVidia graphics card.  AMD components have been known not to work as well when running X-Plane.  More so with a Mac running XP11.

Hope this helps.
