GTA IV keeps freezing on me

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
The game keeps freezing on me, not at the same spot every time but usually right after I finish a mission and move on to something else it will freeze and give me a BSOD

lol mines the same, except i dont even get as far as completing a mission.

my mate said its something to do with the .net framework and games for windows LIVE. i always thought Vista came with .net 3.0 as a standard part of it, but im gonna try it out now anyway. will let you know.

by the way, i've tried 3 sets of ATI drivers including the latest and nothing has helped, so this is my last chance really.

I just have everything set on medium right now, so it shouldn't be that.

Really? Underclock it how far? That's really strange.
