Vice City running slow on P4 3.00GHZ with 1.5gb ram

i recently changed my computer from intel D845 to intel D946.
I was running GTA Vice City on my previous computer it was running finebut when i got a new computer Intel 946 with 1.5GB ram and 3 GHZprocessor HT.. but GTA vice city is running slowly. My graphic card is128mb while the graphic card of my older PC was 64mb.

this happened with Counter Strike too but i got the solution.
when ever i started counter strike it launched the game with OpenGLrendering which was slow. but when i changed it to D3D rendering itbecame normal.

I think the problem is same with GTA VICE CITY but i can not get theGraphic options to change from OpenGL to D3D thus my game runsslow...and hangs a lot

my graphic chip is built in and is INTEL GMA 3000 and i have Direct X 9

please help

    When cricket 2007 is started, it runs ok but after a while gets to run very slow.
    My notebook is running with high performance enabled (power consumption) which is not recommended by HP. I hve changed the resolution of the game to the lowest and tried without any success. 
    My notebook specifications are as follows.
    3 GB Ram
    256 MB dedicated NVidia graphics card
    Windows Vista

GTA Vice City Error

It may not be your game disk at all so I'd probably give the alcohol, toothpaste and whatever else you've been using a rest.

My first PS2 used to overheat a lot, so what I used to do was unplug the AC adapter (after shutting it off) from the system when I wasn't using it and that seemed to help.

Also, regular cleaning with a good laser cleaning kit helped extend its life but eventually it just burned out after about two years.

If you have a small electric fan that you can direct at your game system while you're playing, that will help the system temperature stay cool enough to play beyond the 20 minute mark.

GTA Vice City is pretty graphic intensive, and I'm guessing that since you have an older machine it may just be taxing your PS2's resources.

Probably not what you wanted to hear, but the good new is that it plays great on PS3.
