Vice City freezes!


Recommended Posts



I have a really annoying problem with my game.

When I play, sometimes the game freezes and the sound

stops and goes like "rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr" all the time.

I don't have any idea why this is happening.

This probrlem happens any time when I play. Sometimes it comes after 10 min play, sometimes after 30 min and sometimes after a whole hour. I can't do Ctrl+Alt+Del or anything else (PC is frozen like an ice cube) and I have to shut down my pc with the Off-Button and start it again. It's really getting on my nerves. Especially when I've completed a difficult mission and then I have to start all over again.

Does anybody know how to solve this?


My specs:

AMD Athlon 1.5 Ghz

320 RAM


128 mb Geforce 4 MMX


PS: Sorry if this has posted before. confused.gif


Thanks! smile.gif

I agree not much you can do. But what can help is defragging, but I suggest getting Norton Utilities to do it it's faster and does a better job plus using the other utilities it comes with will help as well.

rahkstar.gif Thank goodness I found some people with the same problem I have. Actually this isn't good, but I will tell you how it happens to me. First, there shouldn't be anything wrong with the PC specs. There MUSTN'T if you have everything above the requirements! Second, don't bother contacting Take 2 tech support because they will answer some crap about updating drivers and programs and WILL NOT tell you what is causing the problem. Now, if some of you know how to fix this thing (honestly), then contact me. I already tried re-installing the game, changing sound/video options, etc. NOTHING works, but there has to be a solution.


My e-mail is: [email protected]

Thank You!

yeah it's really an annoying and weird problem.

When I got Vice City I played for hours. Then suddenly

that problem occurs. I re-installed it and the problem was totally gone! I had no sign of that problem. And then I re-installed the game again because of an undhandled exception sh*t the problem came back and even worse than in the first place. I wish I hadn't re-installed it. Oh well confused.gif
