video hardware error

theres the first main problems and then these at the bottom:
I recently tried my friends version of the dark knight, it also crashed my computer, still with video hardware error showing up. what can i do to fix this!

Also, I want to get my digital copy of Inception but when i get to the download option it won't let me click it. does anyone know why this is or how to actually get a digital copy?

Finally, another weird thing- my comp has little free space left, around 10GB. sometimes when I boot up my comp it goes from 10 to like 14GB. are files being deleted or what is going on?

You have not provided sufficient information for anyone to help you.

Fill out your system specs, and try to describe the errors you are getting, Preferably the exact wording of the errors.

I'd start with a System Restore to fix this problem. Just restore to the most recent Restore Date that you have, just before you downloaded Dark Knight.

I responded to your first two issues in the other thread.

I would imagine that it's temporary files being purged or possibly the page file altering in size based upon expected need. Also, you'll get better system performance if you clean some of that stuff off your HDD. Investing in an external drive isn't a terrible idea for situations like this.

i have a backup hard drive, and i realize i should keep more on that than the internal space. i just dont know why the free space keeps changing when im not deleting or adding large amounts of memory.

I would guess either temporary files or page file. It's hard to say without physically looking at your system, but if nothing seems to be running funny, I wouldn't worry about it.
