Black screen after Intro movies
Posted 15 June 2011 - 10:15 AM
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
Is there any solution or fix for this? I desperate want to play this game

Try running in compatibility and admin modes.

Do not install it to a folder that requires UAC privilage.
Try installing on different folder
