GTA IV

Can't run GTA IV. I get the error "DD3D50"
I changed it to Windows XP Service Pack 3.
Still doesn't work.

My System Specs:

System Manufacturer: HP-Pavilion
System Model: p6204y
Processor: Pentium(R) Dual-Core CPU E5400 @ 2.70GHz
Memory: 6144MB RAM
DirectX Version: DirectX 11

The dd3d error is direct draw 3d, I suspect your hardware is not up to the job, more specifically your graphics chip.

GTA iv is one of the most resource demanding games there is, getting it to even start on integrated graphics would be a miracle.

I'll dig around see what I come up with.
