Answers :

Most people that play high powered games have more ram in their memory card than you have in your whole system. Your friend probably has 1 less program installed when windows boots up so that he has a little more system resourses available that let's the system use a little more ram for your video card. The video card in your notebook is probably sharing the system ram of 512mb. The operating system needs a lot of that ram to run. If you have a program like a virus program, reminder program, printer update program that starts automatically when windows starts it will use some of that system ram and make less available to the computer and the video explaining why yours won't run and your friend's will.
\015\012
\015\012Most gamers playing these high powered games have a minimum of 2 gigabytes of ram and video cards with 512 to 756 megs of ram as well as their own cpu's.
Restart your computer and your friend's computer, at the same time. Press <DEL> to enter BIOS-setup on each computer.
\015\012Do both computers show _exactly_ the same amount of RAM?
\015\012One BIOS-setting may allow you to "dedicate" some of the RAM to be used for "video-memory". Do both computers show the same amount of "dedicated" RAM?

Screen sizing Unit runs fine and I have restored it using the factory discs back to Win 98. It didn't run very fast with XP in it and some of my old favorite games will not run in XP and this is just the ticket. My problem is that I don't remember enough about Win 98 to get around a small problem. The RAM is maxed out at 180 megs and though the graphics card is capable of 32 bit True Color, every time I adjust it to True Color it resizes the screen and everything shrinks down to about 640 x 480.
