  kortical Implant 14:00 22 Aug 2003

when i goto play gta vice city on my pc (p4 1.5gb 40gb hdd, 3d profit 4500 tv out graphics card, 384mb ram)

the start up sequence runs fine but when you get to the intro to the game(a little video clip) then it freezes and my computer graphics go like an old spectrum, i get the error message, windows has detected and recovered from a device failure, please save your work and reboot to restore functionallity.

i have tried a patch for the game to no avail, i have tried an unistall and resinstall of the game and my graphics card drivers

please can anyone help me

i have waited for this game for so long


ps all my other games work fine

click start then run in the box type dxdiag then ok look in the system information at the bottom it will tell you what version of directx you are running if you need it you can get directx9 from here click here
