Run it in dx9 instead of 10.Will stress the chip less. Also patch the game if you haven't yet.

Try this - run "Max Payne 3 Safe Mode"

I ran into a similar problem on my home PC. I actually finished the game, and wanted to play again on HARD. But I could not even get started again, as it would crash every time in the first cut scene, about 3 minutes into it. I had changed nothing since I played before. I did all the things the various sites stated, new video drivers, registry editting, etc.. I was just about to try a complete re-install, in fact I was on my way to do it by searching for an un-install program for it. I went to Start/All Programs/Rockstar Games/Max Payne 3, and instead of finding "Uninstall Max Payne 3" like I was looking for, I found a "Max Payne 3 Safe Mode" just below the regular Max Payne 3 option. (Note, I'm on Windows XP on this particular machine).

I ran it this way, runs within a window (vice full screen). I got through the cutscene that formerly crashed. It got far enough to auto-save past the offending cutscene. I then stopped the game, and re-launched the regular way, and continued the game from there.

Not sure this will work for you or not, but it was the only thing that worked for me.

Good luck.

Thanks mate for ur help,but.... i solved it by myself and completed this game two times.......Anyway thanks..........
In my problem ,some of the objects in the game were missing or corrupted,when the game is in cutscene it loads all the textures and objects that are required to play in next level.When the game finds corrupted or missing textures/objects it freezes and because it is a very big game we need to forcely restart pc.
I solved it by reinstalling , it was the only way to solve in my prob.I first did a complete uninstall (even from registries) restarted pc and then installed it in new different location . after installation and i updated them manually (i got all update setups from somewhere on internet).i not allowed the game to go online.finally it started and ran smoothly without any lags......
