ERR_GFX_D3D_INIT when heading to the clothing store in grapeseed


Recommended Posts

I bought GTA V for my PC last week, and aside from a few fps issues, the first problem I've encountered was this morning when I logged into online, spawned in at the drop off area for the bounty hunter, phoned mechanic to get a car and headed to the clothing store in Grapeseed. As I rounded the corner just after the junction at Union Road heading west onto the main street, I got this error/crash. I rebooted the game and tried again. It took less time to get there the second time, as my car was already waiting for me when I spawned. The same thing happened at the same spot. So I rebooted it, changed a few graphics settings (which required a reboot) and then left it for 5 minutes in case it was a time-related crash. I went a different way, going left at the crossroads on Joad Lane, and I got to just before the next junction before it crashed again. Once again I rebooted, but this time I headed south to the suburban in harmony, and it was fine, no crashes or errors. Is this an issue with Grapeseed in particular or is it something more? I've made a printscreen detailing the crash locations: https://imgur.com/tzz6WXZ


Extra info if it makes any difference:

  • I'm playing online, but solo in an invite only session
  • My Pc is running windows 10 pro, with an Intel Core i5-7400 CPU @ 3.00GHz, with 8GB Ram and 564GB free hard drive space. The PC is less than a year old.
  • I've had a few unrelated FPS issues due to not enough ram (I think), but according to task manager this isn't the issue here

What GPU do you use ?

You use a HDD or SSD ?

What is the size of your paging file ?

  • Maybe This Can Fix That (Maybe)
    • https://pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/Grand_Theft_Auto_V#ERR_GFX_D3D_INIT
    • Verify Game Files
    • Reinstall / Repair DirectX & Vcredist (Use From Grand Theft Auto V Folder)
    • GTA5.exe and GTAVLauncher.exe on their Properties - > Compatibility - > Check "disable full-screen optimisations" (Windows 10)
    • On Graphics Control Panel (AMD / NVIDIA) set the game to default graphics settings from their control panel
