GTA IV huge lag on high spec laptop

Question

ramtinq

Hello please help,

 

I have a Sony VAIO f215fdbi laptop with these details:

 

- CPU : Intel core i7 , 2Ghz , quadcore

- 6 Gbs of RAM

- Graphics : Nvidia GeForce GT 540M (with 1Gb memory)

- Windows 7 64 bit

 

and GTA IV lags highly on my system, such that I can't do anything at the game.

 

== I've installed latest graphics updatesI've also tried disabling "windows event log" and "windows event collector" services but nothing changed.

== I've also installed latest Nvidia updates.

 

I've tried playing this game on a Dell 5010 with these details with no problems at all:

 

 

-CPU : Intel core i5 , 2.4Gh , Dualcore

- 4Gbs of RAM

-Graphics : ATI Radeon with 1Gb memory

-Windows 7 32 bit.

 

and its so strange that it was a laptop with lower specs.

 

the lag starts specially after loading the game.

 

plese help me it has made me really confused.

Make sure gta is using your nvidia card and not the integrated one...

If you right-click on the shortcut there should be an option 'run with graphics processor'. Manually select your nVidia and see if it runs ok. You can also set the dafault GPU for each app in the nVidia control panel.
