If I'm reading you're post correctly, you don't have a stand alone graphics card but are using an integrated intel hd grahics 3000 integrated chipset. That's not great, but it shouldn't crash immediately.

The second thing that jumps out at me is that you have 3976MB of RAM available to the OS and your pagefile shows 3764MB used. The crash could be more to do with running out of RAM than with the video chip.

I need a bit more information to really narrow the problem down.

Do you have anything else running in the background when you try to run minecraft?

Have you adjusted Minecraft's launch options?

Does it crash when you attempt to load the minecraft launcher, or is it when you actually try to launch the game?

Things to try:

Go to https://www.java.com/en/uninstall/ and uninstall all old versions of java
Reboot the machine, then go to https://www.java.com/en/download/win10.jsp to download and install the latest version of java.

Reboot the machine again and manually shut down any software that runs automatically when windows starts up.

Open up the minecraft launcher and click "Launch Options" on the top right of that screen.

slect the version of MC you're trying to run, and on the options screen click the toggle next to "Java Excecutable" and put in the address to the newly installed javaw.exe (this is usually at "C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.8.0_192\bin\javaw.exe", but yours may be different)

See if that makes a difference for you.

OK, so you aren't using the official Minecraft launcher, you're trying to use something called "T-Launcher"?

So what's actually crashing appears to be optifine 1.8 as run through T-launcher.

Optifine is on version 1.13 now. There is a 1.14 beta, but it's still buggy. Are you running minecraft version 1.8 to match your optifine version?

Regardless, I would recommend trying to run plain vanilla minecraft from the official launcher. If that works, you've eliminated a lot of variables. It may be that some of the add-ons, mods, and third-party software you're trying to use is just incompatible with the version of minecraft you're trying to launch.

i also thought this problem could be for the launcher so i tried on several of them, at least 4, and everyone crashes, so i would say it's my computer's problem, not the launcher

Well, it kind of IS your computer's problem in that it's old and none of the software people want to take care of it because they'd rather you buy a new computer and thus all new software to go with it, but legitimately, the root of the issue seems to be the fact that Intel ended support for your graphics chipset before windows 10 was even a thing. Microsoft, for their part, deliberately removed openGL support in an effort to drive vendors towards DirectX, and the fatal last blow is that JAVA in one of their updates, stopped building in backwards compatibility.

I've found one potential solutions, and one additional check. This bit is a little last chance here, but if minecraft USED to work on your system and then stopped, then it HAS to be a software problem, not a hardware problem.

So first, check the vanilla minecraft launcher's launch options and make sure it ISN'T using any special Java executable. This is normally the exact opposite of the advice I give, but you're system is apparently a special case that NEEDS the outdated java.

If it's already trying to use the version that Minecraft ships with and still crashing, you MIGHT want to try the following graphics driver. I've read reports of it fixing the issue for other users in situations similar to yours, but there's no guarantee. It's an official intel download site, but still virus check it and back up all your stuff first if you want to give it a try.

Some instructions on how to install it:

Good luck, my friend. I really hope you get it working.
