GTA III won't load

  JACC 19:17 24 Jan 2004

My son has the game GTA III and when i installed a new graphics card ( GFX 5600 256md )the game refused to run . He uninstalled the game and tried to install it again . Now when starting the game just the RockStar logo comes up and no game .We're using W 98se and have GTA III Vice City as well and it runs ok . Any ideas on how he can get GTA III to run .

Was well known for compatability problem's....

My Advice is to check all driver's, clean install GTA 3 and keep trying!

is the play cd in the cdrom drive?

try running a defrag.

Just a thought but I had a similar problem with Unreal Tournament.
It was running fine and i upgraded the graphics card from 32meg TNT2 Riva to a Geforce Fx5200 128 DDR meg.
All i got after that was the title page.
Traced it down to the Extra's that came with the package i.e demo's and stuff and once i had taken out all the rubbish that went in and just left the drivers for the card the game would run again
