    How do I check my computer on how much video memory I have and have used up? My kids new game won't load saying I don't have enough video memory.

    You need a better video card if you are getting that error. What game is it? Many modern games need a minimum of 256mb of video ram, and some games 512mb to run decently.

    It's just a little kiddie game for my 4 year old. It says it needs a minimum of 64mb. I would think my computer should have that much............. I guess.

    maybe not though. lots of newer kids games require some pretty high specs. i've set up some games for my cousins in the past, just amazing. needed atleast a geforce 6600.

    new video card for you it sounds like.
