Specs: Windows Vista, 1 GB
I just installed Doom 3 on my desktop pc and it installed smoothly and perfectly. When I load the cd into the drive the options screen where it lists "play, extras, help, etc" goes, but when I try to run the game all it does is start spinning the cd, and then a microsoft windows box pops up saying

"DOOM 3 has stopped working"

then I view more problem details and it says

"I don't think its my video card because i got a AMD athlon 64 X2 Processor 4400+ ..."

What does the processor have to do with the video card? If you're using the onboard graphics, it's very possible that the video card, or more correctly, LACK of video card, is your problem. Try running this:

1. Go to the link jam provided and tell us the results.

2. Apparently that thing has a GeForce 6150Se chip onboard. That video chipset sure isn't intended to run Doom3.

3. Read this page about Doom3 patch v.1.3.1 for Vista machines and Doom3.
