GTA4 extremely slow

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Whenever i want to play GTA4 it is extremely slow in the menu. When the two rockstar "R's" come up they are stuttering at about 1fps. after that nothing happens and screen stays black.
-I have tried reinstalling and didn't help.
-It worked fine earlier
-i have latest nvidia drivers.
-GTA4 bought off steam.

thanks in advance for the help.

Are your other games like this too? Did you tweak or messed with the game in anyway? Did you try reinstalling it or repair it?

Well, not the beefiest card or amount of RAM for the game, but definitely should not be stuttering at the menu screen. Sounds like something might be running in the background keep your hdd occupied. Any other Steam games updating when you load GTAIV, by chance?

This is the only game doing this, tried without any background apps running, still stuttering at the beginning. Can't even get to the menu screen. The only thing i updated was my new 1tb hard drive, but it was doing this even before i got it.
