Are you running the patched or un-patched version of GTA IV?

Latest drivers? perhaps they got corrupt when you installed the game, perhaps is time to uninstall the old drivers, download new drivers (both Audio and Video), restart, allow Win 7 to install generic drivers and then install newer drivers, restart again for good measure, test game and enjoy it?

Just saying!

Hi there,

Is your game running off Steam or a Disc?

Have you tried re-installing to see if this fixes the issue?

Disc
Yes, I have tried more than 10 times, with every possible update of game and windows live, even installed in compatibility mode, but still the same error.

Just wondering...

You don't happen to have any car mods, handling lines or a trainer installed do you ?
