I have installed Tiger Woods 2003 and when I try to start
the game I get an error saying that DirectX reported that
the video card does not have enough memory. I have a
GeForce FX 5600 video card with 256MB ram. My computer
has 384MB RAM and I am running Win XP SP2.

I have also tried running Sid Meier's Pirates and when
the game starts up, the PC reboots by itself. I suspect
it is because of the same reason.

Can anyone help me?

Hello.

First thing I'd try would be to install the latest drivers for your nVidia
card these can be found at their website - the latest ones as of today can
be found here http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp_2k_71.84.html

If you've got any other nVidia drivers installed (they'll be listed in
Add/Remove Programs in the Control Panel), uninstall them first and reboot
before installing the new ones.

If that doesn't work post back and we'll try a few more things. 8-)
