GTA IV uses only internal graphiccard-sandy bridge


Recommended Posts



I think my GTA IV uses my internal graphic card...

I cannot change any graphic settings, and in the option menus

is a warning, that my graphic card has only 52MB graphic-ram.

I have an i7 Q2630 and a geforce 540m....


in the nvidia management -> manage 3d settings -> global settings is the nvida card selectet....

i fixed the settings for the gtaiv.exe, too


( this was a problem at other games.... )


So anybody an idea for my problem? sad.gif

Have you tried to update your drivers for your card?

Do you have the latest patch ( installed?

Is there an option in the bios to completely disable the integrated GPU?

First.... Thank You!



So, you cannot disable it in the Bios...


It's an integrated graphic card in the CPU...


..and to disable the CPU is not the best Idea, i think wink.gif


I have the latest drivers and patches...


I had this kind of Problem for other Games, like Crysis 2, too.

But there i adjusted the nvidia control panel, and the game starts with my nvidia card...

Only GTA IV thinks, that my laptop ownes only the internal graphic card... sad.gif

I think you should check the BIOS for options prior to reaching any conclusions.


You can also try using the "-gpucount" switch, not sure how would that go, but try using "-gpucount 0", "-gpucount 1", "-gpucount 2".
