I bought Doom 3 on Steam a few days ago, and it was running great until I reached EFD Junction 6, then after killing the enemies there, I turn around. Then the game crashes saying:

The NVDIA OpenGL driver lost connection with the display driver and is unable to continue.
The application must close. Error code 8"


I have to open the task manager before I can Alt-F4 out of the game.

These are the system specs:

You will find that the error message is telling you exactly what is happening. See if updating your graphics drivers solves it.
