I have a heck of a lot of memory. But still I dont think my video card is getting enough memory because i get trails on my screen when moving windows around and things seem to lag on my monitor even when Im at 16 bit. I go to a different operating system and this is not the case. How can i assign more memory to the monitor or video card? help

You can't assign memory to video unless it is integrated and has a setting for it in the Display utility that came with the machine. You may check Control Panel,Display and click the Effects tab.
At the bottom of the list is a check box to Show contents while dragging if that box is checked that could be the trails you are seeing.

One way is to uncheck the "show contents while dragging".. another is to check weather ur desktop is set to be viewed as webpage or not. Make sure it is NOT viewed as webpage from start/settings/active destop... hope it might help..
