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 video card/graphics accelerator is not compatible or setup right. (meaning ,drivers need updating) We need to open up Direct X diagnostic tool. Use 1 of 2 ways to open it 1 . Go to Start menu. If you have the "RUN" command click on it. type DXDIAG enter If you dont see the run command then Without knowing what operating system you have, do this instead. Open up a command prompt. GO TO: Start, / programs or all programs/ accessories / command prompt , double click. type in "DXDIAG", enter. On the System tab it will tell you how much video memory you have as well as the Direct X version. The system memory and DX version must meet the game requirements. Click on the Display tab. You will see accelerations in 3 categories. They must all be enabled. If all or any are disabled the graphics cards driver needs to be updated to the most recent. Check your games minimum system requirements without knowing any of your systems specs I cant tell you if it is satisfactory
The motherboard is good enough and so is your graphics card so i don't see any reason why the games not playing. Games like star wars galaxies are memory dependent as well as processor dependent.
How much system memory have you got installed in the system? Also have you got a decent AMD dual core processor?
If you think that your system maybe lacking in system memory the what you can do to play the game is set all the settings of the game to medium. That way you can play the game while you wait to upgrade the system. The game should run on a far less powerful machine according to the system requirements of the game.
If I was you i would uninstall the game and then perform a system defragmentation (defrag), then reinstall the game.
If you want a decent defrag program then i recommend Defraggler >>>>
Download and install the program. Run Defraggler and restart the computer. Install the game and see if it will play without locking up.
Let me know how you get on just in case you need more help.
You will need more RAM and a better video card with this computer the built in video card will not play most games. You have PCI-e slot on *********** board and even a $50- $75 dollar card would be a big improvement over what you have now. and you should have at least 1GB of memory.
Do you have a graphics card built onto the motherboard which uses "shared" memory? If so, your options are twofold: Add RAM to the maximum your motherboard will support and/or add a separate video card that has it's own memory. Newer games and YouTube both use video memory and system resources like no other application.
