    Why on earth did you post this here for? It should be in the Games thread. Since there was no Win7 out when Doom 3 was made, try right clicking the .exe and choose compatibility mode.

    Not sure what cpu you have, but i know on some games you have to edit the config not to use all the cores on older games. Had to do it with grid also or it wouldn't start.

    Good Day

    you installed the latest drivers for your vid card? it should work fine in win7 as win7 is pretty much the same as vista.

    Yeah, check your drivers. I've played Doom 3 just fine on Win7 x64 (once they fixed the fullscreen ogl bug).

    Well I installed Doom3 then did the 131 update. At first mine did not run then I saw that my update did not install to same path as what I pick. So I moved all the updated files from the patch to the doom 3 location . Works fine as the patch mess up was my mistake. If you got 2 doom 3 icons on desktop after doing the patch then your patch is not in the right folder. I did not need to do compatibility or anything runs fine......

    PS your posted pic of your problem just takes me to http://pix.sparky-s.ie/ so I cant see your problem.......
