GTA IV weird freezing

Question

DeSanta1710

Hi there, I'm struggling to make my GTA IV work.

 

This is the problem: After loading my game, Niko appears in his appartment. But, as soon as I get to the hallway, the game freezes for no apparent reason. The only solution that I find to this issue is to press Alt + Tab, go to the desktop and then go back to GTA IV. This only works for a couple of seconds, though. This problem makes the game UNPLAYABLE, which is very annoying because I spent money on the game, and I feel like an idiot when trying to fix it.

 

Computer specs (it's a laptop)

 

-Nvidia GT 930M 2GB

-8GB RAM

-Intel Core i7

-Windows 10 (64 bit)

 

 

I have played the game before in this same computer, but I had to reset it, so the game was deleted. Now, when I try to play it, this annoying issue happens.

 

 

Help and thank you!

Ok, so now something has changed. I installed 1.0.8.0, and now, when I start the game, the ''2006-2009 bla bla bla'' screen appears, and it seems to be stuck in there forever, nothing else happens. Would appreciate some help, please.

VSync on/off could help.

 

Try downloading xliveless (disables games for windows) as games for windows live can cause problems especially on newer operating systems.

So yes, it's probably fixed now. Thank you so much! I'll leave the thread open in case I get any other errors.
