GTA IV crc error

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Ok I have tried installing GTA IV several times but keep getting the error.
I have had it before when I first got my pc and had no problems, then I got an SSD and reinstalled Windows 7 and I got the error, it got fixed by installing some AMD update for AHCI or something since I enabled trim. Now I put another SSD in recently as well as a TB hard drive and again reinstalled windows 7 and again the crc error, and I have no idea what to do, I have done everything the same as last time expect now there is 2 SSDs.
any help, not sure if this is the correct forum either since it would be more of a hard drive thing.

specs:
Crucial M4 CT064M4SSD2
Kingston SSDNow V Series SNV125-S2BD/30GB
Seagate Barracuda ST31000524AS
BIOSTAR A880G+ AM3 AMD 880G
2x G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB
AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition
SAPPHIRE 100315L Radeon HD 6850 1GB

That's because GTA IV's coding is equivalent to a scanend copy of a preschooler's drawing.

But seriously, CRC is a error-checking feature. I would simply try installing it on another HDD on the same computer. Otherwise, try running the installation in a compatibility mode and as administrator.

If you use MSI Afterburner, close it. Very common problem that drives people insane when they find out it was just MSI Afterburner the whole time. Close XFire too, it is known to cause problems with GTA IV.

No difference with MSI off or on. same with administrator. gonna try compatibility mode later.

stops at the same spot each time on the second disk
446


and again, last time I had this I was just doing updates and some AMD (I forgot the name but I have run all the AMD updates there is available and no change) updater installed something and it fixed it. but now I have 2 SSDs. said AHCI I believe.

After the compatibility mode I will try installing to the primary drive then going back through updates from AMD/Biostar/Crucial/Kingston, maybe check the bios as well.
