I kept getting "Failed to select new resolution" error when changing resolution

Hi guys. So i just got GTA 3 from the Rockstar Games' website. It installed properly on my PC. When it's finished downloading GTA 3, I clicked play. And the game started on the default 640x480 resolution. However i don't want to play on 640x480 resolution. Because it looks like pixelated. I want to change my resolution to my native one. So i set my resolution to 1920x1080. And guess what ya'll. Instead of changing the resolution properly. I got an error message "Failed to select new resolution" And i'm pretty sure my PC meets the requirements to play the game. 

Not all people get this error message. I'm pretty sure that i'm the only person who got this error message when changing resolution. 

 

Guys. Can ya'll tell me how to fix this? Any help would be appreciated 

 

Thanks in advance.

I tried all that. But nothing solved the issue!
