I recently installed the UT3 demo on my computer and everytime I try to play it I get through the intro and adds and then the screen goes black and my moniter says that there is no signal to it, then when I hit restart my keyboard and mouse don't turn on so I have to disconnect the computer from the outlet and then plug it back in and start it to get them to work. Moniter is a polyview and graphics card is 6800gt. Thanks for any advice

Try updating your graphics drivers To the latest from Nvidia, And make sure you have DX9 installed.

I have DX9.0c installed but as far as videocard drivers go everytime I try to launch games like halflife2 steam will tell me that my videocard drivers are out of date however when I goto nvidias site and try to install the newest drivers it says that my system is up to date and won't let me install anything.

Driver Details
Windows XP pro
Nvidia Geforce 6800 series
Version 6.14.11.6371

Not sure what has been wrong in the past but I tried a second time and the drivers were installed, after restarting I tried ut3 again and same thing happened this time however after a minute or so I got a blue screen of death stating that the "device driver is stuck in an infinite loop" or something along those lines.

The "Device driver is stuck in an Infinite loop" error message is usually the result of a system communication problem.

Check that your motherboard has the latest Bios update
Check that you have an adequate power supply and a compatible one.
Disable or enable AGP fast write and test your system. You can disable fast write with Riva Tuner
Set your memory settings in the BIOS less aggressively and test.

Obtain the latest chipset drivers from the motherboard manufacturer.

You can also use 3dmark to test the graphics card after you make changes. Worst case scenario is the card is dying on you. Since it only does this with one game this may not be the true.

Alright lets see my motherboard is K8N4-E deluxe and is PCI-E not AGP. Next thing would be I have never done anything BIOS related before so I am not sure how to check if it needs to be updated or how to use it to change my memory settings. I suppose the only semi good news is that I was planning on replacing the graphics card in the near future so if thats the problem it wont be so for long.

According to Asus web site the latest bios revision was posted in 2006. When rebooting your computer during the post test it should tell you what bios version you have. If the computer displays the Asus or manufacture logo during booting you can disable this in the bios menu.
The latest beta version of the bios is 1011.003.
