Ok, so I installed the game, along with the expansion pack (which installed the 1.2 patch for me - I know this isn't the latest patch, but still thought it worth mentioning. Anyway, came to play the game, loaded it up as you do, and then it shut down and displayed a little window, with the following information within:

In addition to that, there is flashing red & black text at the top, saying 'Error During Initialisation'. Now, I've no idea what the problem is. I have played Doom 3 on this computer before, I borrowed it from a friend some time ago, though I have reformatted since then, however the hardware remains the same. AMD Athlon 2800+ (2.7GHz) 512MB RAM 160GB HDD nVidia GeForce FX 5200, (128MB) - And yes, I've got the latest Direct X Installed. Anyone have any suggestions???

Well, have sorted that. A download from nVidia updated my Graphic Drivers (though they were updated already, apparently not).

If you have D3 or D3 and ROE, you only need to do one thing then, install patch v1.3.0 ! DOOM 3 Update for Windows, Doom 3 Downloads, Doom 3 Patches Also are you sure you have latest DX v9.0c or DX10 drivers and updated the gfx card drivers also !
