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

Freezing computer

Your processor barely meets the system requirements while your video card falls below the requirements as Vice City needs a 32mb card WITH DirectX 9 support. You could upgrade the video, but you would still be in the same situation with the processor barely making it. Best bet is to think about getting a new PC.
