hi guys and girls
bought gta 4, very excited etc.
installed it. screen goes black for 1 minute approx. then loads. intro vid loads, and crashes every time before the end of it. a complete system reboot!
reinstalled it. update drivers. patched gta 4to 1.03. uninstalled microsoft framework and installed latest version (3.5). restarted etc, and i still have the same problems!!
i managed once to get as far as the game itself, but only by skipping the intro vid. it ran smoothly enough for the half minute it did actually run!
xp service pack 3
3.2 gb of 1066mhz ram
EDIT: i might well be missing something really obvious, so please share anything!
im at a loss as to what to do next, any help at all would be greatly appreciated.
