You need to adjust your BSP settings.
Try to use LargeBSP, or the GRID method.
Hope it Helps

If you didn't change the quality than that means that it's on the lowest quality possible ... propably somthing messed up in you scene try cleaning it :)

To the above mentioned things you can also boot Windows with the /3GB switch and try to render your image via the "render" command line utility. This will give you about 1,3 GB additional RAM.
