GTA III Will Not Start
So I have had GTA III on my computer for a while and it has worked fine. For some reason, however, I try to start and only see a black screen. After a few seconds, the game crashes back to the desktop. I have tried to uninstall and reinstall the game, but the issue persists. The only thing about the game I change is replacing the particle file to fix the dark cars glitch. I have tried to run the game in compatibility mode for Windows 98/ME and Windows XP SP2. I also have tried running the game as an admin. However, I have not been successful in launching the game. I have recently performed a Windows update so I don't know if the update is conflicting with the game because I have Vice City as well and it is experiencing the same problems as GTA III.

Anyways, my Computer Information is as follows:

Laptop Type: Toshiba Satellite

OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit

Memory: About 4 GB of RAM

Processor: Intel Core i3-3110M

Direct X: Direct X 11

BIOS: InsydeH20

Graphics Card: Onboard Intel Graphics HD 4000

About 353 GB of hard disk space

Have you tried deleting "gta3.set" in \GTA3 User Files\ folder? That is usually the culprit in these cases.

The way I worked it out was that I believe there were two folders in my documents section titled GTA 3 User FIles and I deleted one of them.
