I have recently installed GTA3 on my computer yet it does not work: My machine is:
P4 2.8
32MB SIS Graphics (onboard) (according to directX info its a Sis640 Rev00)

I have Direct X 9a installed and it says:
"Hardware accelerated Direct3D 9+ is not available because the display driver does not support it. You may be able to get a newer driver from the hardware manufacturer."

I dont think there is a newer driver?

I can enter the game but when I wait for it to load the actual game it has a system faliure, the screen goes into 8 colours and a reboot is needed.

What could be the problem?

i think you would need a new graphics card seeing as this game is quite demanding!

or i could suggest you going back down to using directx 8.1 or something seeing as your card doesnt support directx 9, as shown by the error message also!

How do I go about uninstalling DirectX9a and instaling 8.1?
