VRAM is referring to your graphics card.
Try this: Turn off your Mac. Start up and hold P, R, Option and Command keys. Let the boot chime sound three times and then release the keys.

Nick, Thanks for your reply. I did what you suggested. My Computer seems to be running a bit faster but all the Apps still will not open. With FCP, I just keep getting this pop up screen. Sorry about the resolution of this screen pic (from my phone) My Grab App isnt working either.... Bridge and the other apps still "quit unexpectadly"...
Any other thoughts? I have been using this computer flawlessly for 2 years. All apps were running perfectly.
I appreciate it so much!

It's certainly possible that a powersurge could cause problems. You might try the guinness solution. UNPLUG the computer, walk away for 16 minutes (go have a beer - hence the name). Come back and power up.
I'm assuming you have a macpro. Do you still have your old startup drive? If so, try installing it in another internal drive slot, and try booting off it. Could be something got corrupted on your boot drive.

Thanks for your time!
I tried hooking up my old SSD Startup disk and I got the same exact error mesages and failed launches. It doesnt seem to the the boot disk.
Is my next option to uninstall and re-install FCP? It doesnt explain wht the other apps are quitting upon launch.
It appears this is not just a FCP issue....
Any other solutions?
Thanks so much!

it does sound like a hardware issue. So reinstalling fcp shouldn't fix the problem. Techtool Pro which used to come with applecare (may still, don't know) has an app that looks at your hardware for problems. It doesn't always find them, but worth a shot.

Try this:• power down the computer• unplug it from the mains• remove the side panel• gently remove the video card (be careful to anti-static yourself before touching the card)• take a can of compressed air and blow off any accumulated dust• while you are at it, blow out the rest of the computer• reinstall the card, close up the case• plug in the computer and turn it onDo you still get the error?• If not, be happy.• If so, start looking for a replacement card.x
