    Allocating more RAM?

    I allocated more RAM when I switched OS from Vista to XP but I can't remember how I did it unless it was when I was installing XP.

    Is there a way to allocate more RAM without reinstalling my OS?

     
    Bad video card drivers!
    -----------------------

    Minecraft was unable to start because it failed to find an accelerated OpenGL mode.
    This can usually be fixed by updating the video card drivers.

    I'm running a Dell Inspirion 6400 Laptop with Windows XP & 945Express chipset family. I've downloaded the latest drivers from the Dell website.
