Have a Gforce graphic card in my pc. Another "FixYa" tech said it might be why my game wont run past the first two scenes before a red x popps up on the screen. He said he tried the game on 3 computers and the one that had the Gforce card popped up with the red x...he hasn't written back to my request as to what graphic cards were in the other 2 computers that ran the game...Can you help? Rhem 3 and other games work fine...

- does it work properly when u disable the online game feature (play the same game without just on your PC or in LAN-session) -goto network connections and disable every connection available besides the one u use for internet access (as u can wire up video cameras to the card via the 1394/port, this port may have been recognized as network adaptor in windows, this might cause IRQ problems and as u do not use it, it is wise to disable it)
retry now the online game / if stil the prob, came back to fixya!
try a new driver or new gta patch. Really though, you need a new graphics card. the 8500 is a budget low end card. get a Nvidia 9800gtx/ gtx 260 or Ati 4850/4870 to game! Make sure you have a good dual core cpu also.
Unless you have a laptop built for gaming you can't. They run between $1800 to $5000. , build a desktop system for gaming and keep the laptop for other stuff. My desktop has twin 7950's in sli mode. you need a faster hd and graphics card along with 2 gigs of ram and at least a 2gig dual core, now they run 3 gig quad cores.
i would check that you have dissabled onboard graphics if any in the bios, uninstal the current driver and the old driver if you had a different card fitted previously to the one you mention as there may be a driver conflict.
restart the pc and when it looks for the driver for your graohics card, either make sure it searches your cd drive for the driver off the disc or install the driver from the disc first then restart the pc.
