Here is what's going wrong:
Game starts fine, I get past all the loading/cutscenes; but once in the game & I start moving, at some point w/in the first minute, the game just freezes, sound starts skipping or stops completely, then I get a black screen w/in seconds later. I also see this message, but not all the time:
"Display driver stopped responding & has recovered - Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding & has successfully recovered"
I then have to go into Task Manager to Exit DOOM 3. Everything else is fine w/the comfuser though.
I've tried Compatibility Mode (both XP SP2 & 2K)
Running in Standard User & Admin accounts
DLing latest Video & Sound drivers
Running in DosBox (just in case)
Seaching online for help & changing some comfuser settings I read may help:
- Changing my Display Settings to 800X600-32 bit.
Shuting down ALL background programs & even some Processes.
Changing my Virtual Memory.
Deleting ALL Temp Files.
Also did a complete ScanDisk & Disk Degfrag.

BFG Nvidia 7600 GT OC Video Card
Western Digital 250Gig HDD
2 DVD-RW Optical Drives
YE-Data Diskette/Media Card Reader

It's not great by today's standards, but I don't have the cash to do an overhaul at the moment.
