Recently I've updated my RAM from 1go to 3go, the first days, GTA IV kept crashing when starting up : randomly after 6 or 7 crashes (sometims more) the game starts normaly but the textures wouldn't appear, anyway. When I upgraded my RAM, the first day the game ran since the first start up and I could play perfectly (apart from some lag). The day after, the problem showed up again, and this time, it's like 8 crashes or so, and if he game doesn't crash, the menu doesn't show, even Windows Live won't show up when pressing "Home"
When the game starts finally after so many tries, it lags awefully for 5 minutes then it's an acceptable lag. I play like a short period of time and the game crashes randomly.
I have absolutly no mods, it's a clean game and I don't know what to do. If possible, I am looking how to fix this problem and prevent the lagging
My specs :
RAM DDR2 3go
Geforce GT 610
Windows 7 32 bit
Intel Core 2 Duo CPU E4600 2.4GHz
Thanks for taking time in reading.
