    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.
