Code:

As for error, it's happened because the programmer used "signed int" data type.
"signed int" data type have range of values from 2,147,483,648 to 2,147,483,647 and this is not enough to store the value of video memory, since modern videocards haves more that 2GB of video memory.


Hope this helps!
