    Hi,

    Hope someone out thier can help, ive installed GTA3 but when i go to load it all i get is a frequency error on the screen and the main menu doesnt load, or it loads but i cant see it, and as i cant access the menu i cant change the settings ? any ideas all my other games run fine like quake, battelfeild, ut etc. Im runnin a res of 1024x768 on a 21ich Cornerstone 21/75fp monitor with a 75Herts refresh rate.

    Any help would be appreciated as it ran before fine but for some reason doesnt now.

    Im using a Leadtec Geforce 4 Mx400 as my GF Card

    Are you running XP with sp1? if not there is a hotfix that you need to download from MS to fix gta3's menu's. I can't remember the name of the file though. I think it mights tell you somewhere in the games documentation.......

    download the drivers for your monitor

    it sounds like your monitor does not support this resolution

    change your refresh rate to 60hz to see if that helps

    try deleting yourgta3.set file in you gta3 users files directory in my documents

    good luck
