When I try to run a program, it comes up
'.... requires at least 12mb of available video memory'
How do I free my video memory up or get more?
Thanks

Noting your ati video card from your last post your only choice would be to purchase a new video card. Most newer cards come with sixty four meg now, high end have 128meg on board memory

alright thanks
if i went to the shop and bought any video card (preferably a good one)
would i have to worry about downloading drivers and stuff for it or would it all be set up when i install it?

You would have to uninstall and remove the current video card from device manager, shut down, remove and install the new card. reboot and let windows install it. Then you would have to load the new drivers from the cd or download.
