John,
I see you have Windows 7 - are you running 64-bit? That is most of what is out there, but I think there are some 32-bit builds. What is the CPU on the machine? Win 7 64-bit with 8Gb and a decent processor should be fine, even if the graphics card isn't ideal. The fact that is slows down after awhile would seem to indicate a memory leak somewhere. Do you run other apps at the same time as PSE? or do you keep opening new files without closing old ones?

I agree, it should work fine. I think the memory allocation is set wrong or something for one thing. The real problem I have it that it has an INtel grapics media accelorater HD card. I purchased Photo Studio 5 only to find out that it is required you have a video card that supports Open GL 2. or higher and has at least 256 memory and they told me mine did not so I bought a program that I cannot use. I may go to a desktop because of price. Thank you for your response.

I have the same problem. I have onOne Photo Essentials 3. I can only use a couple of the features because I need a card that supports Open GL 2. Maybe someone can suggest a video card for us. I have an HP Pavilion Slimline.

There are a lot of them out there and they are not too expensive. You can get a good one with 1gb of memory for less than $100. Most any card sold for gaming will be enough. Before you buy it make sure your processer is fast enough and you have enough memory. I decided to go ahead and buy a desk top built the way it should be and sell my laptop and get it over with, I am tired of trying fixes that don't work. Good luck.

My graphics card (I have a desktop) failed a year or so ago, and I was able to buy a nice Nvidia card for <$100 online. I don't think you need much more than that for just PSE.
