I had this happen to me with a fresh install. Forgot how I fixed it.

Try nvidia control panel, make sure gta iv has the gpu you want selected. Congrats on the 780, I Shouldve bought that instead of the xbox one frown.gif

I bought a XBone never opened it and returned it and upgraded my graphics card after I realized I haven't turned on my 360 in months

Dude... I know there has been a long delay; but I have been trying to get this game working reliable for weeks. This week alone I have put a hundred hours into this by the end of today.

I am re-installing GTAIV for at least the seventh time trying to get this to work (DOWNLOADING 13.83Gb EACH EFFIN TIME.
I get the;- cannot increase Video message using my Haswell i7 Sys and GTX 780
(All other games work excellent).

Can you put your comment into `a procedure` smile.gif PLEASE? rolleyes.gif

For THIS > put the command lines in a shortcut

Put which command lines in? All 2 or 3? or 4?
e.g.
" -norestrictions
-nomemrestrict"

WITH and/or WITHOUT?
"-availablevidmem 3.0 "

WITH and/or WITHOUT?
"-percentvidmem 100"

As a SHORTCUT ?
How?
As a folder or what? Where?

I have the same problem.

I think I was putting it into where the download arrived on my Drive from Amazon game downloads. Whereas I THINK I should have been putting it (the various permutations of the -commandline.txt files) in where the Game Install files went? But I dont know for sure.
There are so few people who write steps for people who are not experts.
I put in (wrongly) some GTAIV Steam files `of this type` first; and have gone through a hundred procedures.
Its a pain.

Did you get your working (reliably)? smile.gif


How?

if you have the steam version:

right click on the game title in your steam library
click properties
click "set launch options"
type: -nomemrestrict -norestrictions

or in same properties menu click "create desktop icon"
then go to the icon on your desktop
right click
click properties
in the "target" box in the shotcut menu, go to the end of what's already written (i.e. launchgtaiv.exe...blah) then, with one space type (without quotes "-nomemrestrict -norestrictions
click apply now

let me know how it goes
