Have you checked to see if your graphic card is supported for this feature?
I'm not sure how I would go about doing this.
My graphics card specs are:
GeForce 6150SE nForce 430
Memory clock: 100 MHz (200 MHz data rate)
Memory Interface: 32 bit
Dedicated Video Memory 64 mb
Video BIOS version: 220.127.116.11.01
I'm running on Windows 7 Ultimate.
I know those aren't the best specs but I haven't had a problem until CS5.

OpenGL® 1.5 Optimizations and Support
Ensures top-notch compatibility and performance for all OpenGL applications.
300 MHz RAMDAC
In conjunction with SDVO to TV-Out conversion chip on the motherboard or on the riser card in the PCI-Express slot enables analog TV-Output. In conjunction with SDVO to DVI-Out conversion chip on the motherboard or on the riser card in the PCI-Express slot enables DVI-Out connectivity to flat-panel monitors.
Feature only available for GeForce 6100/ nForce 430 and GeForce 6150SE/nForce 430 Motherboards manufactured after August 2006.
Designed to run with the next-generation PCI Express bus architecture.
Refer to motherboard GPU technical specifications for supported configurations.
NVIDIA nForce Storage
Safeguards your most important digital media assets; always reliable, scalable, and accessible. Includes NVIDIA RAID and drive support.
NVIDIA RAID and MediaShield™ technology
Provides a simple point and click wizard-based interface for creating and managing multi-disk storage configurations. Allows multi-disk designs to be set up for maximum performance (RAID 0), for data protection (RAID 1), and for select models a combination of both performance and protection (RAID 0+1 and RAID 5). Also allows RAID volumes to be converted from one configuration to another with a single operation. Uniquely allows users to assign an extra disk to any RAID volume so that should a disk failure occur, NVIDIA RAID will automatically remove the failed disk and replace it with the spare.
Take advantage of the latest SATA 3Gb/s hard disk drives, which double bus bandwidth and provides blazingly high disk performance. This technology provides easy-to-install, high-performance but low-powered hard drives.
NVIDIA nForce Networking
NVIDIA nForce Networking solution enables Internet connectivity through industry standard 10/100 Mb/s Ethernet connection.
NVIDIA Native Gigabit Ethernet
The industry's fastest Gigabit Ethernet performance eliminates network bottlenecks and improves overall system efficiency and performance.
Feature only available for GeForce 6150 SE/ nForce 430, and GeForce 6100/ nForce 430.
High Definition Audio (HDA)
High definition audio brings consumer electronics quality sound to the PC delivering high quality sound from multiple channels. Using HDA, systems can deliver 192 kHz/32-bit quality for eight channels, supporting new audio formats.
A standard plug-and-play interface that provides easy-to-use connectivity for USB devices. Supports 8 USB 1.1 / 2.0 ports.
OpenGL 2.0 Optimizations and Support
Ensures top-notch compatibility and performance for OpenGL applications.THIS ONE ISN"T IN THE LIST THOUGH. 1.5 is for what I have and 2.0 is for another. So i guess i need a new one?
What should I get?
Your graphics card only supports "Dedicated Video Memory 64 mb" this is not enough to reliably run this feature.
What would be an appropriate amount of memory for this?
Minimun req. states 256MB, 512MB-1GB VRAM is better.
