Halo Display Problem



I recentely got Halo and I installed it on my PC, the installation went without a glitch. However whenever I try to change either the refresh rate or the screen resolution (above 800x600) when the confirmation screen appears (to save the configs) a BSOD occurs and the computer restarts (I can't read it because the PC restarts to quickly but I can tell it's a BSOD). My desktop resolution is 1152x864 @ 75Hz (and I usually run 3D intensive games @ 1024x768 just fine)

My system specs are:
P4 1.5 GHz
WinXP Pro SP1
Nvidia GeForce 3 Ti 200 (using detonator 40.72)
768 MB RAM

I can run other 3d apps just fine (GTA: Vice City for example) but somehow Halo refuses to run... is it because my system can't handle it?
Oh! and I can't install the latest detonators because it hangs my system (no idea why...) when windows is loading.

Can anyone help me?

(meanwhile I'll be playing the game with 800x600 @60Hz)


Thanks for the welcome :)

I already checked two of those threads but since none of them was similar to my problem... (I guess I should have posted in one of them :eek: )

I'm going to try puting "C:\Games\Halo\halo.exe -vidmode 1024,768,75" in the shortcut but my guess is that it's going to reboot again...

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
