Not enough video memory

Installed Delorme GPS into my laptop Inspiron 4100. Now when I run the program for GPS it tells me Direct X says not insufficient video memory. I'm running Windows XP, 256 MB Ram. How do you upgrade for video memory and what's the best.

The Inspiron 4100 has a 16MB video card built in to the motherboard. It is not upgradable. It appears that the system doesn't meet the minimum requirements for the program, so you'll have to get a more powerful system to run that application. sorry =(

Dell Inspiron 4100 flickering off and on Makes it extremily hard to work with . How can I tell whether it is the display or something else?


What happens when you hook it up to a external monitor? If it works fine with a external monitor, then your laptop monitor is going bad. If it does it with an external monitor, then its more than likely an issue with your laptops video adapter.

Multiple vertical screens at startup (dell inspiron 4100)


Try connecting an external monitor to the laptop (15 pin VGA connector). If the display appears normal on the external monitor then you have an issue with your laptop's LCD display. If the external monitor also has vertical screens then your video circuit on the laptop has a problem.

Sounds like you have too many programs running at once, try to shut down programs that you are not using, this will open up more memory because video and music takes a lot of your 3mg memory. If it still does not work you will have to upgrade to higher memory. You must have 3GB memory, 3MB memory sound too small.

I believe that it is referring to the amount of RAM that you have. If you don't have enough RAM, you would either need to upgrade that or consider buying a new computer. As far as video memory, you can go to run under the start menu and run "dxdiag". Under the Display tab from this window, you will see how much video memory you have.

Piercing, loud alarm when starting Dell Inspiron 4100 laptop


Most likely, the CPU cooling fan, as the system doesn't really start generating any heat until the windows video initializes. If you have the resource CD, run the diagnostic for the fan, see if the noise occurs during the test.

Very general question, but check the soundcard (are drivers installed), codecs for the files you are trying to play. Or look for Fn+F1toF12 combo, which may mute/unmute.
