How much video RAM does your card have?
What operating system?

Skuzzy,

He posted a DXdiag earlier, here is why he is running out of memory.

NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE nForce 430

This is like the old joke that voters are harsher to their beer brewer if he has an outage, than their politicians after raising their taxes. Death and taxes are certain but, fun and sex is only now.

I cannot find the DXDIAG output.

If the video card has less than 512MB of dedicated video RAM and the computer is running Windows XP, then there will be no way it will run the Alpha.

Our baseline video card is the NVidia 9800GTX with 512MB of video RAM.  A 6150SE is several orders of magnitude slower than that card.  There is no way it is going to run the Alpha.
