I recently purchased a new Toshiba laptop that had Vista installed. I also purchased Civilization 4. When I went to install, the last disk, the video, couldn't be recognized and thus the game couldn't be completly installed. Is there a patch, or some other action I can take to play the game? If not, can I return the game for a new game altogther? Thanks.
I had an issue with Vista and my video card. I had to go to the video cards manufacturers website and download the most recent driver for the card. Also if your game is open they won't let you exchange it for something else. I hope this works.

Okay, i play Civ IV on my system and i run Vista as well. Your best bet is the tweak with the compatibility. Find the install folder and look for the .exe that launches the game (civ.exe i think, don't hold me to that though). Right click on it and click on properties, then the compatibility tab. Try dropping the compatibility to win xp and see if that helps. If it doesn't, post your system specs and we'll work from there
Sounds like your dedicate video card bit the dust and you're back using the onboard video, which would absolutely be the reason why things got choppy-- it can handle the demands put on it by the games.
A new dedicated video card would fix the problems.

If it doesn't work the regular way, try installing and playing in compatibility mode. To install in compatibility mode right click on setup -> properties -> compatibility tab -> check: run this program in compatibility mode; to play the game in compatibility mode do the exect same thing ond the game executable file
