Hello all, this acctaully isnt for me but for a less computer oriented friend.

his system is:

Pentium 4 Processor 530 w/HT 3.0 GHz
512MB DDR SDRAM @ 400MHz
48x CD-RW/DVD Combo Drive
80GB Hard Drive

Video Card
ATI Radeon X600Pro ( I believe an advancement on the 9600 series)
PCI Express 128MB DDR Memory

all latest drivers have been updated and game has been fully patched. NOW! here is the problem.

when loading the game, the intro video starts up and about a minute into it, the screen goes blank. He can still hear sound, but theres no video. Theres also no error message, just the "windows has encountered a problem woiuld you like to report" crap when he closes it from task manager.

at first he had old video drivers, but then and after updating them what he saw of the intro video looked better and ran smoother, however he is still crashing about 30 seconds after loading the game. ive been looking all over forums and googled and everything, but i cant find anyone with this sepcific problem, and frankly, im stumped.

any ideas??? please help!!!

Well sounds like a video card issue to me.
But i guess it could be a number of things, Firewall, installation, mods, Doom 3 settings ?
I say try re-installing Doom 3, updates etc. See what happens.
