  1. 32bit OS can only manage 3.5 to 4 gigs of virtual memory and that includes your video cards memory so I am guessing you have a 256 MB video card. A 64bit OS will fix this problem.
  2. no i have a 1 GB radeon hd 4670 graphics card
  3. Well are you running a 32bit version of windows? If so get a 64bit version.
