My System:

Operating system: Windows XP Home Edition SP3
Video/Graphics card type + graphics memory: Mobile Intel 945 Express Chipset Family, 128MB
Processor: Intel Atom CPU N270 @1.6 GHz

I am using a totally clean new legit version of GTA-III, without any mods


When I open up GTAIII, intro movies are displayed. After that a black screen comes up and nothing shows up after that. I don't see the GTA3 load screen or any main menu. Just black screen. Nothing happens when I press Alt-TAB, Alt+Ctrl+Del, or Windows key.

Since my game hasn't been able to run successfully even once, there is no gta3.set file in My Documents/GTA3 User Files/ folder to be deleted.
My PC's specs are beyond recommended specs of GTA3, it can run games like GTA: San Andreas, so the problem isn't with my PC
I have also tried running the game in compatibility mode for Windows 98, and also in 640x480 resolution, nothing helps sad.gif

Is there any solution or fix for this? I desperate want to play this game sad.gif

Where did you buy it?

Try running in compatibility and admin modes.

I bought it almost 2 years ago i think, it worked perfectly on my Pentium II 233mhz but now it doesn't work on my new pc >:(

I am the administrator of my PC and yes I have already tried running in Compatibility mode. Still no luck confused.gif

Do know if the problem is solved but here is what you can do:
Do not install it to a folder that requires UAC privilage.
Try installing on different folder
