Hi guys,
I have an Nec 19" 8ms LCD monitor and when I try to run Doom 3 in 1600x1200 when loading begins the screen turns blue and it says dumping total memery and then my computer reboots. Can a 19" LCD monitor display 1600x1200 res?? My old 17" LCD monitor has no problem with displaying 1600x1200. What is going on here? I'm using DVI, Any help would be.....:confused:

My old 17" LCD monitor has no problem with displaying 1600x1200.

I would put forth that this statement is a fallacy, unless you had a 17-inch CRT monitor. I used to own a 17-inch CRT that was capable of 1600x1200, albeit at a low refresh rate.

Do you have a specific model for your current monitor? There are no 19-inch LCDs I know of that are capable of 1600x1200. That resolution is pretty much reserved for 20-inch or larger displays.

As saturnotaku pointed out, only 20" LCDs or larger support 1600x1200 resolution.
19" LCDs and smaller have a maximum resolution of 1280x1024 so your 17" LCD would not have supported 1600x1200 resolution.
