I never even thought this would happen but Q3 will not even load up the beginning id logo movie intro. It just sits at the white screen right before the id logo movie.

The only way to get out of it is to end the task and then my desktop is stuck really bright and the only way I found it fix it so far is to restart.

If anyone can help me out here it would be much appreciated...

I would recommend first trying this.

go to quake3 folder, then to the "baseq3" folder and moving q3config.cfg to somewhere else on your machine (out of baseq3). Try loading it then. Alternatively, have you changed anything on your machine lately? dx9? new drivers? I would recommend getting the latest point release (Darkmaster was right, it is 1.32) and install that.

I'm sure one of those things will sort it. If not, try uninstalling quake3, delete the quake3 folder after the uninstallation process and then install it again with the 1.32 point release. That will definitely sort it I reckon.

After I un-install the Point Release it deletes the q3.exe which keeps me from starting the game at all, until I install the Point Release again.

Can't I play with no point release and then make a dedicated server so my friends can join me...?

Try installing Q3 again from the CD.

unless your friends also have quake3 with no point release, then no - servers with no point release can only be used by clients with no point release... servers with 1.32 to be used by clients with 1.32 etc.
