    Don[t know if I'm in the correct Forum, but here is my question:

    Low Video Memory


    I am trying to load software for a Fisher Price Digital Arts & Crafts Studio on my Lenovo for my granddaughter. When attempting to load the software I get a message saying I am low on video memory.

    Task Manager info is as follows (I am not sure if this is the right info...I am not computer savy!!):

    Physical Memory: 1726 MG in Use
    Available: 4141
    Hardware Reserved: 266
    In Use: 1725
    Modified: 11
    Standby: 3450
    Free: 691

    Available: 4141
    Cached: 3461
    Total: 5878
    Installed 6144

    My system is as follows:

    Windows 7 / Service Pack 1
    Processor: Intel (R) Core (TM) i3 CPU 550 @ 3.20 GHz 3.19 GHz
    Installed Memory (RAM) 6.00 GB (5.74 GB Usable)
    System Type: 64 bit Operating System

    What can I do to free up more video memory in order to install the software?

    I think that the software is complaining about the amount of memory on the video card, not about the main memory.
    Is the machine a laptop or a desktop? What make and model is the computer? What make an model is the video card? What software are you trying to install (company, product name, and version)?
    If the computer is a laptop, there is (most likely) no way to change the video card.
