Adobe has articles about that error message. I read such and the video card was not noted as a possible problem. Since it's web content, I don't duplicate it here.
First: What is the difference (if any) between a graphics card and a graphics card accelerator? Does the accelerator plug into the existing graphics card or does it replace it all together??
Next: I'm having problems getting pictures to load in Adobe Photoshop Elements 3, they either take FOREVER or they don't load at all. One error message I get says something to the order of "is having problems parsing this file"... and those pictures have loaded before... I have a ton of hard disk space (+100 GIG) and alot of RAM (1 GIG)... I have a suspicion that its my graphics card (which is an "INVIDIA 5500" & came with the computer)... am I right???? Please help! I'm trying to restore and digitize old family photos from the early to mid 1900's!!!
