  1. Hi Guys.
    Can anybody help & explain, why Doom 3 is crashing after about 10 minutes.
    As far as i know all drivers are up to date. PC system is,
    Fujitsu Siemens. Pentium 4, 3.20 GHz. 1.00GB of Ram. Radeon X 600 series games card. 4 months old.
    Played the game on my last PC, with no problems.
    I also have Half Life 2 installed, where there is no problem.

    You say "as far as I know" your drivers are up to date.... how sure are you?

    Also, make sure your bios is up to date. Those are the major causes, so I'd confirm 100% before you starting looking for other causes.

    Maybe a heat issue,take the side of your case and point a table fan at the gubins inside.worked on my old set up and halflife2.

    A lot of recent gaming problems have been caused my AMD's Cool 'n' Quite "technology" puke: . Try turning that off to see if it solves it.

    EDIT: Sorry, forgot you had an Intel chip.
