Just recently ill be playing a game on my pc and it will crsh and say its out of video memory or out of memory
it didnt do this when i 1st bought it it does it for all my games i looked this problem up online and some other people were having the same problem so i went to Nvida's website and installed the driver for my Video card it still gives me the same error i have my pc set up for performance mode and still it crashes
Honestly, I would say buy a new video card. The nvidia FX series cards are just plain horrible. You should be able to find a decent replacement for pretty cheap. It's a pretty easy swap to do, maybe even fun, if you're into that sort of thing!! ;-)

your current integrated video card is only 64MB video memory. i suggest you upgrade to at least 128MB video memory or higher. check at your local computer store for the compatible AGP 8x video graphics card. happy shopping :)
Your pc may contain some malicious code or just say a virus which may eating your PC resources like cpu , memory or even hard disk.. i recommend you to install a good antivirus licensed copy and find if there are viruses.
and mind u that, even a pirated game contains trojans that harms your computer.
And before that just check whether your pc contains some bad sectors & try to recover it if there are.
Both the things are very common for this problem.
I have gone through this problems.
Your computer will support up to 4GB of memory - using two 3GB modules. Memory type is 240-pin DDR2 SDRAM which you can purchase on line or at a ocal computer outlet. Likewise for the purchase of your video card. For step-by-step instructions on installing the card, check out this link:
Chances are the desktop PC had a video accelerator and the laptop didnt. Laptops have integrated video cards that share the systems processor and memory to do its work. Video accelerators have their own dedicated CPU and memory and take the video work away from the system. A video accelerator with say 64 to 128 mb of video memory may have a 250 to 300 mhz CPU on the card. This means the system can dedicate the full 1.5 GHz and 512 mb of memory to the game. Integrated video cards like this one will give up about a third of its memory AND half of its processing power to run your game. In essence, the laptop is SLOWER than the desktop when playing the game. If the laptop is running Vista, then the slowdown is even greater.
you,ve damaged the UMD Drive, or Laser.
hence disk read errors.
you,ll have to obtain a replacement UMD Drive ( e-bay )
Or alternatively you could look into firmware flashing and pandoras Battery.
This way you can play games from a memory stick.

Does your machine meet the games minimum requirements?
If so have you tried turning the graphics down in your game interface?
Laptop Graphics cards usually use your systems memory so they have a harder time rendering complex graphics. I play WoW and have my graphics turned up on my desktop but have them turned down to minimal for my laptop.
Vista also takes allot of system memory thus leaving less for your video card. If you are going to play games on it on a regular basis I would suggest you have a minimum of 2GIGs of memory.
