My system has been causing me some grief lately and I need some help going through possible problems and solutions. The system has been running kinda slow lately and seems to have trouble rendering the graphics a bit when a flip between some programs and windows.
My biggest problem lately has been while playing Civilization 4 Warlords. It's obviously got at least something to do with graphics settings, but I have no clue what might be wrong and/or how to fix it. I would have put this in the hardware section, but I also think I might have other factors generally system-wise that might be causing some of my slowness.

Firstly the error message I get while doing stuff in the game (which causes a CTD) is as follows:
Failure to allocate video memory. Please try reducing your graphics settings.
File:\Source\main\Civilization4\SDks\Gamebryo2_0\CoreLibs\NiDX9Renderer\NiDX9SourceTextureData.cpp, Line:314
I've already run scans with my AV (ZoneAlarm Security Suite), AdAware, & Spybot. I've done defrags and used Registry Repair by GlarySoft to clean the registry. I'm not sure what else to do.

I'll post a HijackThis log shortly. The system specs are in my sig.

Hmm, just noticed I have an iPod Service running. Suppose I can disable that, since I don't even own an iPod. :p
