If you know what kind of video card you have, I'd suggest getting updated drivers. If you have an Nvidia card, www.nvidia.com, ATI, ati.amd.com.

You can also do start menu->run and enter 'dxdiag' without the quotes and that should tell you what you need to know about your card to find out the right information. Let me know if you have a question.

sounds like you went from xp to vista...try installing a second partition with xp or win 7....vista has a known problem of doubling video memory in the system memory....so if your running vista on a laptop, you are straining the system from the get go
vista seems fast, for a little while

You'll need to do the uninstallation first, then find the map the game used to be in, delete the whole map (so the mods are uninstalled too) and the install the game again.

I cant play my gamesaves qhen i want to play gta 3 or gta vc


Does the save location exist?
Make sure that these two files exist on your computer:
for GTA III
My Documents\GTA3 User Files
for GTA: VC
My Documents\GTA Vice City User Files

Have you tried downloading save files off the internet to check if it's the applications ability to read?

Also, check if your antivirus is blocking the application from reading the memory.
