Assgame called GTA IV causes system crash.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello dear community,

Well I'm quite pissed off at the moment, I purchased GTA IV on Steam in December, I played it 2 times, and then everytime when I launched it, I couldn't even reach the loading screens, my system would just literally crash and reboot 2 secs later. I kind of forgot about the game until I format'd my PC 3 days ago. So I thought I'd give it a new try.

Same ****, different toilet. Played a couple of hours, the game ran smoothly, then quit, and when I launched it again, it happened. Loading screen. I decided to give it another try, and it happened again. Eventually I could barely even reach the Rockstar Logo anymore, my PC would just restart itself instantly.

I've the latest NVIDIA drivers. I googled my problem during hours, I couldn't find any similar problem which wasn't hardware-related, because I'm pretty sure mine isn't. Any game or just anything besides GTA IV runs just fine.

I figured out it might be a driver conflict, so I just uninstalled the NVIDIA HD Audio's ones, because that's the only conflict I can think of, and with the Realtek drivers, that is. I tried to run it on a new hard disk aswell, didn't change anything. I really don't know what to do, so I hope you guys got any ideas or whatever, it would be greatly appreciated.

Get a money refund and get it for the ps3 or 360 if you own any of those consoles.
