How do I find out how much video memory I have (how much RAM is dedicated to Video)?
I was just wondering, how do I find out how much of my RAM is dedicated to Video Memory? Because I tried playing Never Winter Knights (the new one) and the picture was really messed up, I can attach a snapshot if you like. A 16MB video card is the minimum for NWK, and since the game worked on my computer (and I have onboard video), I thought that my computer met the minimum requirements, but since the display is so messed up, I can't understand what's the problem

Access your bios setup should show how much ram is being pulled for onboard video there.

You can also check at the POST screen, you'll see the amount of memory+Shared Memory. The shared memory is the RAM that is allocated for your video!

As to your second question, in regards to playing NWN. If you have the minimum requirements, you may still not be able to play the game. If you exceed the minimum requirements it doesnt guarantee you be able to play the game.
Compatibility of hardware devices
Installing the relevant and updated drivers of your video card which should support OpenGL.
