When you sang hang, is it the entire PC that freezes (needing a hard reset) or the game itself crashes, but the PC stays working?

Which video drivers are you using? The Windows supplied one, the one from the manufactures disc or the ones from ATI?

If the entire PC is freezing, it could be any number of things. A memory issue for example.

part of the issue is simply that GTA4 wasn't ported well. outside of that. if your getting a hard freeze requiring a reboot it would seem your pc is running to hot while playing the game. how is the air flow and ventilation of your case?

your problem could be bad cooling or driver issues. do you get any BSOD's aswell? does this happen on any other game?

Granted it's a bad port, but hard freezes are indicative of other problems, not the game itself.

It could also be memory related. As adt asked, do you get any other Blue/Black screens of death at the desktop or playing any other games?

If so, I'd suggest running memtest86+ to check for any errors:

Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

(Burn the .iso as a bootable disc and boot from it. The test will run automatically. A Minimum of 8hrs is recommended, so leave it run over night. Unless it starts showing errors straight away)


How long into the game does the hang occur? Within minutes, after an extended period of time? etc

► Did you build the PC yourself or was it pre-built?

► Are all your other drivers up to date? ie your motherboard chipset drivers/ sound drivers

► Any yellow triangles/unknown devices that appear in Device Manager?

► Use GPU-Z to monitor/log your Video Card temperatures to see if it's overheating:
