    Quake III runs fine on my machine. Have you tried to un-install and reinstall it?

    what error message does the console give you?
     
  4. No error message just keeps on restarting my computer when it loads back up no error message apears it just looks like nothing has happened.

    I have tried taking it off and putting it back on but still no luck

    Right click on "My Computer" --> properties --> advanced tab --> startup and recovery "settings" button --> under "system failure" untick "automatically restart".

    The next time it happens, it should give you a blue screen error. Copy down the error including all numbers. Should look something like : 0x000.....etc. Post the error here and we can help from there.

    You could also look in the "event viewer" and it might tell you or atleast guide you in the right direction.

    try different nvidia drivers.... wid 23.11 quake kept crashing at random when i restarted ma comp.... it was nvidia drivers :p so i tried 30.82.... they gave me the same problems... but now i use 40.72 and now they r fast smooth and stable :)

    well one thing tho.... do expect 1 crash wid 40.XX drivers but after that 1 crash that it no more :
     
  10. Ill download them tonight thank you
     
  11. Quake III Arena plays under xp now using the 40.72 drivers some other games crash now but I am happy with the result and I can wait untill they relase the completed version of the 40.72 drivers.

    Thank you for all your responses :D
