I installed the demo for Keepsake, and I get this error saying that I do not have enough video memory, and that I should upgrade my video card driver. NVIDIA GeForce is reccomended, though I am lost, and do not know what to do from here. I have installed the Intel Hardware Accelerator, which may be too old, just as the upgrades found on the website are.
If someone can help me, I would appreciate it. I am not sure I am doing this correctly, either :thumbsup:

First go to the BIOS and make sure your onboard video is running at it's highest settings. Could you describe your computer to us.

Processor and speed
Amount of RAM
Operating System and service pack installed

What is the minimum memory the program requires?

Go to http://www.nvidia.com/content/drivers/drivers.asp
and click on the Graphics driver, then on the model of your video card, and then on your OS. This'll lead you to the proper video driver for your card.

FWIW - if you've got a GeForce card (not the GO version) and are using XP, here's the link for the download: http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp_2k_93.71.html
