    Another possibility, I'm on an Intel Atom processor, could that be causing the problem?

    Doubt it, if windows works all other should work. Considering symptoms, I would blame video drivers.

    Well, I posted a new thread concerning this problem in the Graphics Card section of the forum. So I'll just wait to see what they say. Thank-you for all your efforts!

    Just want to give you an update. The guys over in Graphics Card said that the Intel(R) Graphics Media Accelerator is very, very low quality and that is why I don't get video, they don't understand why the game doesn't just crash!! So I guess I'll tell those developers that it was just my GMA.

    Doesn't look like very demanding graphics on that game, I'm getting up to 300 fps on my system, even faster than first GTA for instance and that one runs just fine on a Athlon 3200+ (socket 462 @2500 real MHz) and 5200 AGP video card.

    I'll have to tell them that. I also remember playing the PC version of GTA San Andreas on this very computer, the resolution was rather low, but I was still able to play the game without any crashes! That was before I reset from Windows 8.1 to Windows 8.

Some of the games I have seen have the options to select which one to use, dx9 or 10 or 11. Honestly, I have just a little approximate knowledge of what these do most of them from experience. - dx9 runs smoother (just for me i suppose) - dx10 just adds shinys and i did not really use it....
There were some reports in August that graphics card manufacturers have no drivers for this new DirectX 11.2 standard that MS has developed and will release with 8.1. Is this a concern for those (probably all of us) that have graphics cards which do not support 11.2? Any reason to wait until the...
