but here goes

over the last few patches I've been getting the following

Fatal Error: There is not enough available video memory. Please Choose lower resolution settings, or close other graphics applications.

Technical Details: E_OUTOFMEMORY while creation 2D texture size 512 x 512 (10 mips,D3DFMT_A8R8G8B8), 3.23 GB memory availble


The application was unable to start correctly (0xc0000017).

I've done what I can, setting my vid settings as low as they go. but I can't get that far anymore. the game won't make it toon screen let alone past the loading scream.

I've whipped my computer clean and done a fresh install from both my Amazon hard copy and tried again with my D2D copy. and keep coming up with the same bs

I'm a life time subcriber and can't play. and love this game but it pains me to have put in so much time and money into this and not be able to play.

Windows 7 64bit
AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ 2.0GHz
5GB DDR2 800
Geforce GTS 250 - 1GB GDDR3

all updated drives. tried rolling back drivers as well. I can log on from a friends house but can't at home. what gives.

Try setting your Aliasing and Anti-Aliasing setting to 1 or off, sounds like a problem ATI cards had back in Beta and early live. Turned out to be an ATI Driver issue. Can also try rolling back your video drivers. Thos with Nvidia cards can tell you to which driver set to roll back to.

You may also want to force a scan of all game files; open game to login screen, click Options and select "Force Verify."

DOH, just re-read your post. sounds like it is your system. Since you did a re-install with Win7 did you re-install DX 9c latest version? STO is DX 9c not DX 10 or DX 11. Yes DX9c, DX10 and DX11 can co-exist under Win7.
