Problems running DOOM 3

Post by Corey » Fri May 01, 2009 00:45

I am having a very hard time getting this game to run correctly no matter what I do, I do hope someone has been able to run this game correctly on Vista before I decide to sell it.

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.

My Comfuser:
Asus A8N-SLi Deluxe Mobo
AMD 64 4000+ (2.40GHz) CPU
2Gigs Kingston DDR3200 Memory
BFG Nvidia 7600 GT OC Video Card
Western Digital 250Gig HDD
2 DVD-RW Optical Drives
YE-Data Diskette/Media Card Reader
Vista HP (Home Premium) 64Bit SP1
It's not great by today's standards, but I don't have the cash to do an overhaul at the moment.
